Leon Bailey injury update

Ahead of Thursday, Unai Emery’s men currently sit top of the table, three points ahead of Legia Warsaw after their 2-1 victory over the Polish side last time out.

However, while Villa are already guaranteed to progress into the knockout rounds, if they are to avoid a potentially tricky play-off with a team dropping into the competition from the Europa League, they must match the result Warsaw achieve against AZ Alkmaar.

ECL group winners go straight through to the last 16 but the eight runners-up must face a play-off against a side dropping down from the Europa League.

Before the clash with Zrinjski, Unai Emery provided an injury update on Leon Bailey, who went off at half-time vs Arsenal at the weekend:

“He was tired, completely tired!” Emert said. “Hopefully he’s not injured but I don’t know exactly.”
