Gornik enters this match in a good mood, as they have two victories in a row in the Ekstraklasa. They recorded their last victory against LKS Lodz, playing as guests. Although the hosts dominated in the first half, the guests were the first to score.
With a good game from the transition, they found their way to the opponent’s goal, and in the thirty-sixth minute, Giakoumakis gave his team the advantage. The second half brought us a similar game. The hosts had the initiative, the guests tried from the counter-attack, but neither team was specific at the end of the attack.
Gornik is in the eleventh position at the table with thirty-six points. This game comes as one of the last chances to fight for the championship play-off group.
Offensive midfielder Woldztynski (26/2) is still injured and he should be their only worry for this one.
Lechia enters this duel after a very interesting victory against Arka Gdynia, at their home stadium. Nothing interesting happened in the first part of the game and no one could guess what was waiting for us in the second part of the game, a real football roller coaster.
The second halftime brought us a completely different match, with both teams having their leads and being in a situation to seal the points, however, it was the hosts who looked more determined to take the points towards the end.
Not only they leveled just before the ninety minutes but managed to finally seal 4:3 victory with the third goal from Paixao in the seventh minute of added time.
Lechia team news
The guests miss midfielder Kubicki (20/0) due to suspension. Midfielder Udovicic (8/1) probably isn’t gonna play.
Goals are expected in this one
Considering the history of the encounters between these two teams, we can see that in a large number of matches both teams scored a goal. I don’t think this match will be an exception either with their current offensive form, so I would go for it – reasonable stakes.
