Team News: Wisla Plock
Wisla Plock boss Radosław Sobolewski has a full complement, with no fitness concerns to speak of coming into this match with a fully healthy squad available to select from.
Team News: Pogon Szczecin
From a largely full-strength squad, there is just the lone fitness worry for the Pogon Szczecin boss Kosta Runjaić to contend with. Igor Lasicki (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be playing here.
We’re of the opinion that Wisla Plock may not find it easy to breach the defence of this Pogon Szczecin lineup who should end up scoring and staying ahead.
We’re therefore tipping a very competitive game with a 0-1 advantage for Pogon Szczecin at full-time.
A close call.
