Commentary

That's all for now though, goodbye!
The result means Legia remain top of Group C - they now have six points and find themselves five points clear of third. Leicester drop to fourth in the group meanwhile.  
Legia hold on to secure a famous win! The hosts dominated the first half, and they made their pressure count when Emreli fired a precise shot beyond Schmeichel from 20 yards.  In the second half, Legia sat back and attempted to cling onto their lead. Leicester created plenty of chances to equalise, with Daka, Vestergaard and Maddison wasting opportunities, but they just couldn't find a way through. Kastrati could have extended the lead further in stoppage time, but it stayed 1-0 and Legia grabbed a vital win.    
90' + 7' FULL TIME: Legia Warsaw 1-0 Leicester City
90' + 6' Maddison bends a 25-yard strike well wide.
F. Mladenović
Yellow Card
90' + 5' Mladenovic is booked for timewasting.
90' + 5' Barnes whips a tantalising cross towards the back post, but there are no Leicester players on hand to finish it.
90' + 3' CHANCE! Maddison gets through on goal at a tight angle, and he pokes it past the onrushing goalkeeper, only to see it roll into the side netting!  Was that Leicester's final chance?    
90' + 2' HUGE MISS! Kastrati races away on the break again and he weaves past two defenders to leave himself a clear shot at goal. However, he opts to slide a pass over to Pekhart who - with the whole goal to aim at - blasts it well over the bar from close range! 
90' + 1' Five minutes of stoppage time are added on.
90' SAVE! Kastrati almost wraps it up. The attacker speeds past Castagne and drives into the box before chopping past Vestergaard to leave himself a clear sight of goal! However, Schmeichel makes himself big and manages to flick the shot onto the post and away to safety!
T. Pekhart
Yellow Card
88' Pekhart pulls Thomas over to prevent a counter-attack and the referee awards a simple yellow card.
86' CLOSE! Castagne fires in a low cross from the byline and it falls kindly to Maddison five yards out! Maddison takes a touch before slotting it past the goalkeeper only for Jedrzejczyk to block it away!
J. Maddison
Yellow Card
84' Maddison got frustrated with Emreli taking his time to come off after being substituted and he's shown a yellow card for his protests.  
T. Pekhart
M. Emreli
84' Pekhart comes on for the goalscorer Emreli up top.
M. Emreli
Yellow Card
83' Emreli confronts Maddison before he's substituted and he earns himself a yellow card.
Rafael Lopes
Josué
82' Josue heads off with Lopes taking his place.
J. Vardy
P. Daka
82' Daka is replaced by the talismanic Vardy up top. How Leicester could do with a goal from him now.
82' Leicester have produced nine shots from inside the box in the second half, compared to Legia's one, but they just can't find a way through right now.  
81' Emreli leads a counter-attack on his own. It all culminates with the striker cutting inside from the right and bending a speculative effort wide.   
80' Lookman has two shots blocked inside the box before Legia eventually clear.
J. Abu Hanna
M. Johansson
78' Johansson departs with Hanna coming on.
A. Lookman
D. Amartey
78' Leicester replace a defender with an attacker as they hunt for an equaliser: Amartey comes off for Lookman.
77' Tielemans' corner is cleared at the near post, before Barnes wastefully skews a cross high and wide.
75' Barnes and Maddison play a slick interchange on the edge of the box, allowing Maddison to get to the byline. However, his cross is blocked behind by Jedrzejczyk.
74' Amartey's cross goes a little behind Daka, who responds by firing an acrobatic volley well over the bar. 
73' Barnes is a huge player for Leicester to call upon from the bench. Barnes has been directly involved in five goals in six starts for Leicester in the Europa League (four goals and one assist), while he had a direct hand in both of their goals against Napoli last time out - scoring once and providing an assist.
71' CHANCE! Maddison has had an immediate impact. The midfielder glides forward before scooping a delightful pass over the top to send Daka through! However, Daka can't get it under control and Legia recover to clear it.  
L. Kastrati
André Martins
70' Martins makes way for Kastrati in midfield.
69' Maddison's corner is cleared at the near post. Leicester are piling on the pressure now!
H. Barnes
Ayoze Pérez
67' Perez is replaced in attack by Barnes.
J. Maddison
K. Dewsbury-Hall
67' Leicester make two substitutions as they bring on two of their most dangerous attackers. The first change sees Dewsbury-Hall make way for Maddison.
66' BIG SAVE! Dewsbury-Hall's inswinging corner flies into the six-yard box and it's met by Vestergaard! The defender can't make a clean connection though and his close-range header is pushed off the line by Miszta!
64' Daka flicks Soumare's cross towards goal, but the delivery lacked power and the header safely loops into the arms of Miszta.
62' Leicester have been in complete control of the second half, but it looks as though they need an extra spark in attack to create chances.   
60' Soumare threads a pass through to Thomas near the byline. He fires a cut-back into the box, but it's cleared by Kharatin.
59' Chance! Legia hit Leicester on the break. Emreli leads a three-on-three and he feeds Josue near the byline. Josue has options inside the box, but his cross is superbly plucked out of the air by Schmeichel.        
57' Kharatin bundles Perez over right on the edge of the box, presenting Leicester with a promising free-kick.  Dewsbury-Hall wastefully curls it into the wall, before firing his follow-up strike back into the wall again.  
55' Legia appear to have dropped deeper in the second half as they look to tighten their grip on their slender advantage. 
53' Soumare's deep cross flies narrowly over the head of Daka.
Josué
Yellow Card
52' Josue is booked after tripping Tielemans.
51' Close! Emreli turns Vestergaard before firing a vicious 25-yard strike that whistles narrowly over the bar!
49' Perez has it in the net from the next set-piece but the whistle was already blown for a foul against the attacker.
48' Dewsbury-Hall's free-kick is cleared behind for a corner. Legia struggle to clear the delivery and the visitors force another corner.
46' Legia kick the second half off.
Leicester have plenty of firepower on the bench with the likes of Vardy and Barnes, but they'll be hoping the current lineup has enough to drag them back into this game without tiring their stars ahead of a league game this weekend.    
Legia lead at half time thanks to Emreli's strike. The hosts made a fast start: Emreli and Johansson both wasted big opportunities to take the lead. But Leicester failed to take on board the warning and Legia eventually found the opener when Emreli finished accurately from 20 yards. Leicester grew into the game after that with Perez screwing wide when clean through on goal. Nevertheless, Legia lead 1-0 at half time. 
45' + 1' HALF TIME: Legia Warsaw 1-0 Leicester City 
45' One minute of stoppage time is added on.
44' Soumare rushes 30 yards towards the edge of the box where he goes down under pressure from Kharatin. However, the referee waves play on and Legia rebuild with possession.      
43' CHANCE! Tielemans wins possession high up the pitch and he immediately feeds Daka. Daka flicks it deftly through to Perez who finds himself one-on-one! However, with just the goalkeeper to beat, Perez screws his shot a few yards wide of the near post!   
41' Close! Dewsbury-Hall whips in a dangerous delivery across the face of goal and for a moment it looks like Perez will tap it in! However, Nawrocki gets there in front of the attacker to hook it clear.   
39' Dewsbury-Hall finds himself with space to cross from the left, but his delivery is scuffed and Legia easily clear.  
37' Leicester have provided Daka with barely any service in attack so far. The striker has managed just six touches.
35' Slisz fires in a cross in search of Emreli, but Vestergaard does just about enough to put him off.
33' Well, that goal was coming. Legia have imposed themselves quickly on Leicester and they've created all the big chances so far. The visitors need to find their rhythm and fast.   
Josué
Assist
31' It was a simple pass from Josue into Emreli. But the striker did brilliantly to spin Amartey before planting a precise finish beyond Schmeichel.
M. Emreli
Goal
31' EMRELI! 1-0! Legia take the lead. Emreli receives a pass on the edge of the box that Amartey fails to intercept. The striker then swivels before squeezing a 20-yard strike through the legs of Vestergaard and off the inside of the far post and in!
30' The hosts look much more threatening right now, but Leicester are working hard to try and limit them.
28' Legia break away on the counter, but it comes to an abrupt end as Slisz fires high and wide from 30 yards.  
26' CHANCE! Emreli connects with Josue's low cross, but he wastefully blazes it over the bar from close range! The linesman had raised his flag for offside, but replays show that Emreli was onside and it would have counted.  
24' Martins attempts to pick out Johansson again, but Soyuncu is there to knock the cross behind. Legia work the corner short, before Martins eventually whips in a cross that Soyuncu clears.   
22' Emreli runs the channel before chipping in a cross for Josue. Vestergaard is well-positioned though and he heads clear.   
L. Thomas
Yellow Card
20' Thomas clumsily stands on Johansson's toe and earns himself a yellow card.  
19' Almost! Perez clips a delicate pass over the top in search of Daka. The striker holds off Wieteska, but he can't quite bring it under control and it runs away for a goal kick.
17' Slisz fires a wayward pass over the top of the defence and Leicester take the opportunity to enjoy a long spell of possession in defence.  
15' Martins tests Soyuncu this time, but the Leicester defender is up to the challenge and thumps the ball out of play.  
13' It's been an exciting game so far. The home fans are creating a raucous atmosphere and they've been treated to an end-to-end affair.
11' CLOSE! Daka tackles Wieteska on the edge of the box! The striker promptly lays it off to Perez who has a low shot blocked behind by Nawrocki. The resulting corner is missed by Miszta, but Perez isn't alert and it bounces off him and away to safety!  
9' Jedrzejczyk clatters into Daka from behind, presenting Leicester with a free-kick 40 yards from goal. They work it short to Perez who drives towards the box before having a low cross turned behind. Dewsbury-Hall's eventual set-piece is punched clear by Miszta.
7' Johansson beats Soyuncu again. This time he jinks past the defender before cutting it back to Martins who can only hit a tame strike straight at Schmeichel from 25 yards.   
5' That was a nervy start from Soyuncu. He got caught out by the run of Johansson and was almost made to pay!
3' CHANCE! Johansson wriggles past Soyuncu and gets free inside the box! The wing-back continues into the six-yard-box until it's poked away by Vestergaard. His clearance falls to Martins whose 12-yard strike deflects off Tielemans before spinning narrowly wide!
1' Leicester get the first half underway.
The players are emerging from the tunnel and kick off is just seconds away!
It’s going to be tough for Leicester to get the win they need though: Legia Warsaw have lost just one of their last six home matches in the group stages of the Europa League (W4 D1), falling to Napoli in October 2015.
Leicester also move away from a 4-3-3 and opt for a 3-1-4-2 instead. They make six changes though: Pereira, Bertrand, the suspended Ndidi, Lookman, Vardy and Barnes all drop out. Meanwhile, Amartey, Castagne, Dewsbury-Hall, Thomas, Perez and Daka all come in.
Legia make two changes to the side that lost 3-2 to Rakow last time out. They switch from a 4-3-3 into a 3-5-2, with Skibicki and Kastrati making way for Johansson and Kharatin.
SUBS: Filip Benkovic, Hamza Choudhury, Ryan Bertrand, Marc Albrighton, James Maddison, Ricardo Pereira, Harvey Barnes, Eldin Jakupovic, Ademola Lookman, Danny Ward, Jamie Vardy.
LEICESTER CITY (3-1-4-2): Kasper Schmeichel; Daniel Amartey, Jannik Vestergaard, Caglar Soyuncu; Youri Tielemans; Timothy Castagne, Boubakary Soumare, Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall, Luke Thomas; Ayoze Perez, Patson Daka.
SUBS: Jurgen Celhaka, Joel Abu Hanna, Mateusz Holownia, Tomas Pekhart, Rafael Lopes, Lindsay Rose, Ernest Muci, Yuri Ribeiro, Kacper Skibicki, Kacper Kostorz, Lirim Kastrati, Kacper Tobiasz.

Leicester, meanwhile, drew 2-2 with Napoli despite taking a 2-0 lead in that game. They’ll be aiming to push towards qualification for the knockouts with a valuable away win today.
Hello and welcome to live commentary of this Europa League Group C fixture between Legia Warsaw and Leicester City. Legia opened up their Europa League campaign with a 1-0 win away at Spartak Moscow and they’ll be looking to follow that up with an upset today by beating Leicester.
