Legion vs Levadia Tallinn Betting Predictions and Odds
Sovereign success for Levadia in the ghost game?
The ball will roll again in the Estonian Meistriliiga from Tuesday! After a break of almost two months, the game will resume on the second game day. On Tuesday evening there will be a duel between the promoted Talinna JK Legion and last year’s runner-up FC Levadia Tallinn.
After the season opener, the home side will face the reigning champion Flora Tallinn before the next mammoth task. Both teams have lacked game practice in the past two months, but the guests’ favorite role is undisputed. It only feels like the question of the amount of the away win.
What is important when betting on the goal market was explained in detail in the betting guide for over / under betting. As with the season opener of the promoted team, we also expect a goal-scoring encounter on matchday two. It is quite possible that the home side will score again. After all, there was a goal on matchday 1 against the strongest defense bulwark of last season.
Legion – Statistics & current form
Rejal Alijev kicks the red and blue in the Estonian House of Lords! Tallinna JK Legion’s goalkeeper has scored a total of 91 goals in the last three seasons, and was therefore instrumental in his team’s Estonian football fairy tale. After three promotions in a row, TJK Legion now wants to establish itself as a first division team in the Meistriliiga.
Season kicked off
For the first time in the club’s twelve-year history, the club from the Estonian capital is represented on the top floor. Denis Belov, formerly coach of the youth team of TJK Legion, did an excellent job for the professional team in his four years. It is quite possible that the successful trend of Tallinna JK Legion under Belov will continue this season.
Although the season opener in the Meistriliiga was defeated with the away defeat (1: 3) against the reigning champions FC Flora, the red-blues showed very promising approaches. After all, the team from Belov scored a goal against the strongest defense of last season. The next difficult hurdle is already on the second day of play.
Alijev as a glimmer of hope
The defense will be challenged by TJK Legion on Tuesday evening. On the offensive, on the other hand, the eyes are on Rejal Alijev, the top scorer of the last three seasons. The 30-year-old Estonian-Russian striker missed the first game of the season. In the home game against Levadia Tallinn, Belov is likely to attack his protégé again.
No big changes are expected in the starting eleven. It is quite possible that Belov has a starting line-up similar to that of the season opener against FC Flora, especially since the promoted squad is quite manageable.
Probable lineups of Legion:
Londak – Kovtunovits, Artjunin, Volodin, Ussov – Nesterov, Vnukov, Mashichev, Lipin – Satov, Alijev

Levadia Tallinn – Statistics & current form
FC Levadia Tallinn have won countless national titles in club history. Including nine championships in the Meistriliiga, nine cup wins and seven Super Cup titles. The league title was last won six years ago. Since then there have been five runner-up championships in series for the Green-Whites from Tallinn.
Primary goal: The championship in the Meistriliiga
Since the adventures on the international stage usually end in the first qualifying round, the primary goal of the team is clearly the national competition. Compared to the competition across the league, Levadia Tallinn is strongly positioned and benefits from numerous legionnaires in the team. Trainer Martin Reim is also not an unknown face.
The 49-year-old coach of the green-whites had previously worked for the Estonian national team for many years and has a lot of experience. In this competitive season, Reim will take over a team in the Meistriliiga for the first time since the 2012 season. The last time the Estonian coach worked for FC Flora (2010 to 2012) was where they won two championships in a row.
Concentrated offensive power
Last season Levadia Tallinn was the second strongest offensive team behind Flora. Overall, the green-whites from the Estonian capital scored 98 goals in 36 games – an average of 2.72 goals per game. It is quite possible that the runner-up will continue this offensive trend this season. Abroad, Levadia had a total of 13-1-4 in 18 away games.
Before the two-month break, Levadia Tallinn celebrated a successful start to the season under head coach Reim. In the home game against Kuressaare there was a 1-0 win for the green-whites. It remains to be seen whether the narrow home win against last year’s penultimate table was really commendable. The next points are now to be taken with the promoted and city rival TJK Legion.
