It has been all too rare in recent games that Pogon Szczecin have shown defensive steel. The facts show that Pogoń have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 matches, giving up 8 goals on the way. That kind of pattern might not be carried forward into this match, though.
Pre-game facts show that Pogon Szczecin:
- are unbeaten in the league by Piast Gliwice in their previous 3 matches.
- have not won at home in their last 3 league matches.
Piast Gliwice go into this meeting after a 2-0 Ekstraklasa win to beat Jagiellonia Białystok in their most recent outing.
For Piast Gliwice, the goalscorers were Piotr Parzyszek (12') and Jorge Félix (14').
A run of accomplished displays by the Piast Gliwice defence has seen their ‘goals against’ tally standing at 4 from their previous 6 clashes combined. In that period, the number of goals that they have scored themselves amounts to 6. We will see whether or not that trend will be sustained into this next match.
Leading up to this clash, Piast Gliwice:
- have not beaten Pogon Szczecin in games played away from home for the previous 2 league games.
- haven’t won away from home in the past 2 matches in the league.

Team News: Piast Gliwice
Thanks to a completely injury-free squad to choose from, Piast Gliwice manager Waldemar Fornalik does not have any fitness worries whatsoever before this match.
Pogon Szczecin will need to apply a lot of pressure to breach the defence of this Piast Gliwice lineup who will likely get the win and a maybe even keep a clean sheet as well.
We therefore fancy a highly competitive game with a 0-1 win for Piast Gliwice at the end of this game.
Looking forward to this.
