The Ekstraklasa game at Stadion Zagłębia Lubin on Sunday sees home side Zagłębie Lubin welcoming opponents Podbeskidzie B-B.
Our Zagłębie Lubin v Podbeskidzie B-B tips, poll and stats can be seen in full below (inc. the best betting odds).
Zagłębie Lubin will be hoping to bounce back here following a 3-1 Ekstraklasa loss in their previous game against Lechia Gdańsk.
The only name on the scoresheet from Zagłębie Lubin was Patryk Szysz (45'). Łukasz Zwoliński (6'), Mario Maloča (23') and Žarko Udovičić (64') scored for Lechia Gdańsk.
It’s not been often in recent times where Zagłębie Lubin have shown defensive steel. The reality is that Miedziowi have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, leaking 13 goals in the process. That sort of trend isn’t assured to be continued into this game, of course.
Podbeskidzie B-B will go into the match following a 2-0 Ekstraklasa win versus Wisła Kraków in their most recent outing.
In that game, Podbeskidzie B-B had 50% possession and 15 attempts at goal with 7 of them on target. For Podbeskidzie B-B, goals were scored by Desley Ubbink (13') and David Niepsuj (47'). For their opponents, Wisła Kraków had 11 attempts on goal with 4 of them on target.
The stats tell the story, and Podbeskidzie B-B have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, with opponents netting 8 goals in total. At the back, Górale can certainly do much better.
Looking at their past form shows that Podbeskidzie B-B:
- haven't beaten Zagłębie Lubin in away games against them for the last 2 matches in the league.
- haven’t won away from home in the past 14 matches in the league. They clearly need to do something about it.
