Lech Poznan is hosting Legia Warszawa at INEA Stadion in round 27 of the Polish Ekstraklasa.
Lech Poznan is playing well this season, especially in the attacking part where they scored 45 goals in 26 games. Their defense has also been solid with only 25 conceded goals. With 42 points, Lech is in 5th place in the standings and at least for now, they are in the spot that will take them to the Championship round. Gytkjaer has scored 15 goals for Lech this season, while Jevtic and Jozwiak added 6 goals each. Lech has scored at least 1 goal in their last 9 games while conceding at least one goal in 6 of those 9 games. Earlier this week, Lech was facing Stal Mielec in the Polish Cup and has had 55% of ball possession, 6 shots on goal, and 3 corner kicks. Lech was the better team in this match, and they have routinely won this game 1-3. Last season Lech has gotten in the Championship round from 8th place with 43 points, while they ended the Championship round in last, 8th place with only 52 points. Of course, we can’t compere this and last season, as Lech’s defense was a disaster last season. Lech still has a chance to get higher in the table before the Championship round, but they also can lose their current spot, or even not get qualified for the Championship round.
Legia is also one of those teams that you think of when someone mentions Polish soccer. With 51 points, Legia is at the top of the standings and they are light-years away in the attacking end from the rest of the teams in the Ekstraklasa. Legia has scored 54 goals in 26 games so far, which is an average of over 2 goals per game. In their last 6 games in the Ekstraklasa, Legia has had 1 loss, 4 wins, and 1 draw, with 14 scored goals, and 6 conceded goals. In their first game in over two months against Miedz Legnica on the road, Legia was great with 58% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, and 6 corner kicks. Legia has won this game 1-2. Legia got into the Championship round from the second-place last season, while they ended the Championship round also in the second place with 68 points, 4 points less than Piast at the top. Niezgoda has scored 14 goals for Legia this season, while Kante added 10 goals. Wszolek, Krbownik, and Luquinhas each have 6 assists. Legia has a really good team, and they are playing the best soccer this season, but I hope they learned something from last season and I hope they will stay focused for the rest of the season and win the Ekstraklasa title.
Lech Poznan hasn’t lost any of their last 9 home games. Matches between Lech and Legia are always fun and enjoyable to watch, but I’m not sure what we will get after such a long break. Both teams have started the season with a win earlier this week, and both teams have conceded a goal in those games.
