Górnik Zabrze will be looking to improve on their last outing here after a 1-2 Ekstraklasa losing effort in their last game against Piast Gliwice.
The only name on the scoresheet from Górnik Zabrze was Jesús Jiménez (72'). Jakub Świerczok (29') and Sebastian Milewski (66') scored for Piast Gliwice.
Górnik Zabrze have really been misfiring of late. Their goals record stands at just 3 versus opposition teams over the course of their last six fixtures. In those games, Trójkolorowi have also seen the tally of goals scored against them total 7.
Leading up to this clash, Górnik Zabrze:
- haven't lost in the league to Pogon Szczecin in their last 2 matches.
- have not won at home in their last 3 league games.
Last time out, Pogon Szczecin drew 1-1 in the Ekstraklasa match with Podbeskidzie B-B.
The only name on the scoresheet from Pogon Szczecin was Adrian Benedyczak (72'). Kamil Biliński (29') was the scorer for Podbeskidzie B-B.
A run of very capable showings by the Pogon Szczecin defenders has resulted in their ‘goals against’ tally amounting to 3 from their previous 6 clashes in total. In that period, their own attack force has managed to score 8. With no two games being the same, time will tell whether such a trend shall be maintained here in this game.
Pre-game facts show that Pogon Szczecin:
- haven't beaten Górnik Zabrze when having played them away from home in the previous 8 league matches. An awful away record.
- are undefeated in their last 2 away league matches.

Team News: Górnik Zabrze
There’s just a single fitness concern for the Górnik Zabrze gaffer Marcin Brosz to be concerned with due to a largely intact squad. Lukasz Wolsztynski (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) misses out.
Team News: Pogon Szczecin
Out of a mainly available group, there’s only the lone fitness worry for the Pogon Szczecin boss Kosta Runjaić to contend with. Igor Lasicki (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be in action.
We feel that Pogon Szczecin and Górnik Zabrze could end up without much reward for their efforts here.
Let’s see how this one goes, but it looks this could be a game with minimal goal-scoring opportunities. We’re therefore tipping a very even match with a 0-0 score when all is said and done.
