Zaglebie Lubin vs Warta Poznan
Poland – Ekstraklasa
Date: Friday, 29 August 2020
Kick-off 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Stadion Zaglebia Lubin (Lubin).
Lubin picked up from where they left off last season and started the 2020/21 campaign with a 2-1 win over Lech Poznan. They were trailing 0-1 at half-time, but such is the confidence and spirit in this squad, they strike back-to-back goals towards the end of the game to make it a memorable comeback.
Zaglebie closed the 2019/20 season with a solid run with 5 wins in 7 games while losing twice.
They are a tough nut to crack at home, only 4 defeats happened here in the whole of last season. Meantime, they scored an average 1.89 goals at this stadium.
Warta Poznan returns to Ekstraklasa for the first time since 1995 and despite putting up a strong fight went down 0-1 to Lechia Gdańsk.
The Greens finished third in the second tier last season and with little or no reinforcements look set for a difficult life in Ekstraklasa.
The teams’ most recent meeting happened in the second division back in 2008/09 season and both fixtures resulted in away wins.
Things have changed since, Zaglebie certainly grown strong and they built a fortress in Lubin and looks good and strong to bag another win on Friday. So do the bookie’s odds of 1.60 on home win suggest they are heavy favourites.
If you are a fan of inplays, the over 0.5 first half goal offer good value, can be taken after first 10 minutes of the match if the odds are priced at 1.50 or above. Seven of Zaglebie’s last 8 home matches saw them score or conceded in the first half.
