Śląsk Wrocław manager Vítězslav Lavička will be happy not to have any fitness worries to speak of ahead of this game owing to a fully injury-free group available for selection.

From a largely available group, there is only a single fitness worry for the Pogon Szczecin manager Kosta Runjaić to be concerned with. Igor Lasicki (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) misses out for this game.
We’re inclined to think that Śląsk Wrocław could find themselves up against it to hit the back of the net against this Pogon Szczecin team who we think will gain the upper hand.
We’re therefore expecting a very competitive game with a 0-1 win for Pogon Szczecin when all is said and done.
Should be a close one.
