Pogon Szczecin vs Piast Gliwice (By: Stanioooo)
2 rounds before the end of Poland Ekstraklasa Pogon Szczecin will have to host Piast Gliwice.
These teams are from the championship group, but with totally different ambitions right now. There are 8 teams in this group and Pogon are the last team there without any chances to reach the places which give direct place in EL or CL, while their opponents are the leaders of the group with 1 point advantage of Legia Warsaw and 4 ahead of Lechia Gdansk. The battle for the 1st place was looking to be severe, but Piast Gliwice just went into a beast mode in the right time of the season and beat as visitors their main opponents for the title Legia and Lechia Gdansk with 0:1 and 0:2. They are in supreme form with 6 wins in a row and if won't be wrong to say they deserved the trophy with this final run. Still, Legia is very close to them and Piast don't have any right to make mistakes in their last 2 games against the 7th and 8th in the table.
Poland Ekstraklasa is a very tough league and a lot of strange results can happen, nothing is particularly guaranteed, but here I see a match where the guests should be extra motivated to take the win and to celebrate the title in the next round on their stadium after the match against Lech Poznan. Everything depends on them right now-2 wins will guarantee them the 1st place, but every single mistake can be punished by Legia Warsaw which team has a similar schedule as theirs but against the 4th and the 6th in the table.
Excellent news for Piast Gliwice is that Pogon's topscorer Buksa is out for this game being injured, together with Benedyczak(forward) and Malec(important defender). For the visitors, the only missing player is their defender Sedlar, who is also very important with 6 goals during the season but is suspended for this game.
During the season these two teams had 2 games H2H and Piast Gliwice beat Pogon twice with 0:2 as visitors and 3:0 at home. They are in a fantastic run, they need the max points here and easy or hard, I expect the guests to take the max points once again, to continue their amazing run and to celebrate the title on their home ground in the last round.
