With less than two weeks before Europe’s major leagues get underway, there is a full list of Champions League second round qualifiers still be played to determine which sides make it into the final round. Trnava will be confident of progressing past Legia in their second-leg on Tuesday after beating them 2-0 in the first-leg.
As this is the second-leg of the tie, there has been one previous meeting between the two sides. It was last week and Trnava made sure they took didn’t let the home fans faze them as they managed to bring a vital 2-0 win back home for the second-leg. Erik Grendel put the visitors a goal ahead in the 16th minute before an injury-time goal from Ján Vlasko ensured that Legia would have it all to do in Slovakia.
After a brilliant first-leg performance, Trnava don’t have too much to do in front of their own fans. A first-half goal would certainly calm the mood while an away goal might make it a tougher task than expected.
