Team News: Warta Poznań
The Warta Poznań boss Dawid Szulczek will be grateful not to have any fitness concerns to speak of coming into this clash with a fully healthy group available to choose from.
We are thinking that Warta Poznań may well go for a 3-4-1-2 system for this one, beginning the first half with Jedrzej Grobelny, D. Stavropoulos, Dawid Szymonowicz, Wiktor Plesnierowicz, Jakub Bartkowski, Konrad Matuszewski, Mateusz Kupczak, Miguel Luis, Kajetan Szmyt, Maciej Zurawski and Stefan Savic.
Team News: Lech Poznań
With a completely healthy group ready to go, the Lech Poznań boss John van den Brom does not have any fitness concerns whatsoever ahead of this clash.
It’s our belief that Kolejorz could decide to elect for a 3-4-3 formation by sending out Bartosz Mrozek, Filip Dagerstaal, Antonio Milic, Michal Gurgul, Alan Czerwinski, Jesper Karlstroem, Radoslaw Murawski, Dino Hotic, Afonso Sousa, Filip Marchwinski and Kristoffer Velde.
We’re of the opinion that Warta Poznań are dangerous enough to breach the defence of this Lech Poznań team, although one goal might not be as many as the goals that they could concede.
We can see a very close game with a 1-2 winning score for Lech Poznań when the full-time whistle blows. We are expecting it to be pretty even.
