Standard Liege vs Lech Poznan
UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 26 November 2020
Kick-Off at 20.00 UK
Venue: Maurice Dufrasne Stadium.
Standard Liege have struggled for consistency early in the new campaign and it shows as they sit rock-bottomed in Group D, hosting Lech Poznan desperate for points which would see them still in the running for the top 2 spots. They haven’t been able to pick it up in Belgian First Division A, though, and there’s surely a lot on their minds ahead of Thursday’s clash.
Standard have sen draws against Antwerp (1-1) and AS Eupen (2-2) more recently, where they only saved a point with a last-gasp equalizer. Lech Poznan now hope to capitalize on such woes but have been conceding numbers of goals lately too, including a thrilling 3-3 draw against Rakow Czestochowa – where they turned it around but were denied points in stoppage time.
Lech obviously have woes of their own domestically and we don’t really see them bouncing from such a disappointment. Still, the visitors could have more to build on in Europa League and we feel they’ll keep hold of solid chances to make the top 2 cut here, with a great challenge and a thrilling contest in the making at Maurice Dufrasne Stadium.
