With a fully healthy squad to pick from, Wisła Kraków manager Artur Skowronek has zero fitness concerns at all coming into this game.
We feel that in this game, Górnik Zabrze have it within them to be able to create a high number of chances and successful shots on target.
However, Wisła Kraków may well find it hard to get shooting opportunities but do we see them hitting back at some stage here, too.
