Availability isn’t a big problem, with just the lone fitness concern for the Górnik Zabrze gaffer Marcin Brosz to be concerned with due to a largely intact set of players. Lukasz Wolsztynski (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) misses out.

Due to a fully injury-free group available to select from, Lechia Gdańsk manager Piotr Stokowiec has no fitness worries whatsoever ahead of this match.
In this game, Lechia Gdańsk should be able to break down this Górnik Zabrze lineup, however that may not be as many as they will have scored against them.
We’re going for a narrow 2-1 advantage for Górnik Zabrze by the time that the referee blows the final whistle. Could easily see this go either way.
