From a largely available group of players, there’s only a single fitness issue for the Górnik Zabrze boss Marcin Brosz to contend with. Lukasz Wolsztynski (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be in action.
We believe that ŁKS Łódź will have their work cut out to score goals against this Górnik Zabrze outfit who we think will emerge victorious. We’ve gone for a good tussle with a 0-1 win for Górnik Zabrze when the referee blows for full-time. There should be little in it.
