Lechia Gdańsk will be hoping for a better result following a 2-0 Ekstraklasa loss in their previous game against Piast Gliwice.
Jakub Świerczok (3') and Jakub Czerwiński (32') scored for Piast Gliwice.
It’s not been often in recent games where Lechia Gdańsk have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. The facts show that Gdańsk have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 games, leaking 7 goals along the way.
Ahead of this meeting, Lechia Gdańsk haven’t won against Lech Poznań in their last 2 league matches.
After suffering a loss in their previous game against Standard Liège in Europa League competition, Lech Poznań and their travelling fans will hope for a better result here.
In that game, Lech Poznań managed 54% possession and 11 shots at goal with 2 of them on target. The scorer for Lech Poznań was Mikael Ishak (61'). Standard Liège had 18 shots on goal with 9 on target. Abdoul Tapsoba (63') and Konstantinos Laifis (90') scored for Standard Liège.
The stats don’t lie, and Lech Poznań have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 matches, with opponents netting 10 goals in total. Defensively, Kolejorz can certainly do much better. Such a pattern might not be sustained into this next game, of course.
Leading up to this clash, Lech Poznań:
- have left without a victory over Lechia Gdańsk in away games against them for the last 4 league games. Not good at all.
- haven’t won away from home in the past 2 league matches.

Thanks to a completely healthy squad to pick from, Lech Poznań manager Dariusz Żuraw doesn’t have any fitness worries to speak of coming into this game.
We’re of the opinion that Lechia Gdańsk will surely be able to breach the defence of this Lech Poznań lineup, but one goal possibly won’t quite be enough to avoid defeat.
Therefore, we think that it’s going to be a tight encounter finishing with a 1-2 winning margin for Lech Poznań when all is said and done. Should be an interesting one.
