Our full set of predictions, statistics and match poll for Lechia Gdańsk v Cracovia can be seen below including the latest game odds.
Lechia Gdańsk, who won their previous game, will hope for a similar result following a 1-3 Ekstraklasa victory over Wisla Plock.
In that match, Lechia Gdańsk had 45% possession and 7 shots at goal with 4 on target. For Lechia Gdańsk, the scorers were Flávio Paixão (6'), Bartosz Kopacz (81') and Joseph Ceesay (95'). Wisla Plock had 13 attempts on goal with 11 on target. Dawid Kocyła (74') scored for Wisla Plock.
It’s not been often in recent times that Lechia Gdańsk have shown defensive steel. The facts show that Gdańsk have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 6 of their previous 6 games, letting in 9 goals along the way.
Ahead of this meeting, Lechia Gdańsk haven’t won at home in the past 2 league games.
Cracovia go into this match following on from a 1-0 Ekstraklasa win versus Górnik Zabrze in their previous outing.
In that match, Cracovia managed 44% possession and 10 attempts on goal with 3 of them on target. The only player on the scoresheet for Cracovia was Sergiu Hanca (3'). At the other end, Górnik Zabrze got 11 shots at goal with 3 on target.
A sequence of resolute showings by the Cracovia defence has resulted in the number of goals they’ve conceded standing at 3 from their past 6 outings overall. In that period of time, their forwards have scored 5. That trend isn’t assured to be carried forward here, though.
Looking at their past form shows that Cracovia:
- remain unbeaten by Lechia Gdańsk when they've played them away from home in the last 2 league matches.
- haven't been defeated in their previous 2 league matches away from home.
- are without a win away from home in their last 8 league games. Their travelling support will be needed here, for sure.
