Lech Poznan vs Haugesund
UEFA Europa League Qualification
Date: Thursday, 20th July 2017
Kick-off at 19:00 UK / 20:00 CET
Venue: Stadion Miejski, Poznan.
After the obligations in their respective domestic leagues, Lech Poznan and FC Haugesund will meet after a week for a rematch. The Norwegian side got the best out of the first match, but the second leg in Poland is crucial.
Lech Poznan obliterated Macedonian Pelister 7-0 on aggregate, but FC Haugesund was a tough nut to crack. Despite falling in Norway, the Polish side has an active result – after all, scoring twice on the road isn’t a negative thing, but they can’t allow conceding more than two on the home turf.
During the weekend, they faced Sandecja Nowy in the opening round of Polish Ekstraklasa.
The away team was also active during the weekend. They beat Aalesund 2-0 on the home turf and took a giant leap towards the top three teams in Eliteserien.
The upcoming match in Poznan is a real test for both Haugesund and Norwegian football to see how much they actually progressed in the last few seasons.
Lech Poznan vs Haugesund: Head-to-head
The first leg was probably the most thrilling game of the last week’s Europa League. The Norwegians were up 1-0 on the half-time, but the chaotic five minutes started in the 71st minute when Haugesund increased the lead to 3-0 in the two-minute span. Lech responded immediately, but the crucial goal was the penalty they converted in the 93rd minute for the final result of 3-2.
Lech Poznan vs Haugesund: Prediction
Another high-tempo fruitful match is expected in Poland. The first half might be a slower, but in the second the home team must look for goals which will create opportunities for Haugesund to counter and seal the appearance in the next round.
