Legia Warsaw are back in the Champions League for the first time since 1995-96 when they reached the quarterfinals. Formed as the official club of the Polish Army, they’ll be sporting army green away kits when they visit the Bernabeu. Last season, the eventual Polish champions were led by Hungarian striker Nemanja Nikolić, who scored 28 league goals last campaign. While it’s unlikely they’ll get out of the group, Legia’s average attendance is more than double the Polish league average, so expect noisy welcomes for European giants Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid.
Scored 28 goals in 37 league matches in his first season at Legia Warsaw.
The journeyman keeper is a consistent presence in a heavily rotated Warsaw squad.
