Wisla Krakow is hosting Legia Warszawa at Stadion Miejski im. Henryka Reymana in round 28 in the Polish Ekstraklasa.
After almost three months, Wisla has played their first game last week against Piast Gliwice on the road and has lost terribly. Wisla Krakow has had 52% of ball possession in this game, 1 shot on goal, and 4 corner kicks. Wisla has conceded a goal in the first minute of the game, and everything went downhill from that point. Wisla has conceded another three goals and has lost this match 4-0, and like that wasn’t enough, Wisla Krakow has conceded a red card in 75th minute of the match. Wisla is now in 13th place with 31 points, big 9 points away from the Championship Round of the season, and I’m confident Wisla can turn things around in the last three games, and even if they do, other teams need to play in their favor. Wisla has lost massive 14 games this season, scored only 33 goals, and conceded 42 goals. Pawel Brozek has scored 8 goals for Wisla Krakow this season, while Blaszczykowski added 5 goals. Wisla is on the slow recovery journey, but it will take another season or two for them to reach their old fame, but for now, Wisla will need to play in the Relegation Round of the season.
Legia is the best team in Poland this season and I see them winning the title. Legia is at the top of the standings with 54 points, 8 points ahead of Piast, and while there is still the Championship Round to play, I don’t think Legia will gamble away their advantage. In the first game in the Ekstraklasa since the restart, Legia was playing against Lech Poznan on the road. Legia has had 43% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, and 4 corner kicks. With an early goal in the 17th minute, Legia was ahead. The result didn’t change again and Legia has won this match 0-1. Niezgoda has scored 14 goals for Legia this season, while Kante added 10 goals. Wszolek, Karbownik, and Luquinhas have added 6 assists each. Legia Warszawa was playing two games since the season started again, and they have won both of those games while scoring three goals in the process, and conceding only 1. It’ important to start the season on the high now, especially after a forced break of almost three months, and Legia Warszawa is doing it. With three more games left in the regular season, it’s important to make the advantage as big as possible because the Championship Round is a different beast and it could get messy.
A derby between Wisla Krakow and Legia Warszawa is one of the biggest derbies in Poland. In the head to head matches, Wisla has won 12 games, Legia has won 20 games, while 10 matches ended in a draw. This could be a tough game for both teams, and even though I would give an advantage to Legia, I will take a stab at a draw.
