Korona Kielce vs Sandecja Nowy Sacz
Competition: Poland Ekstraklasa
Date: 9 September 2017
Kick-off: 15:30 CET
In Korona Kielce’s home game against Nieciecza two weeks ago, one of football’s… unwritten laws was verified. The hosts won a game in which a draw would have been a more fair result, but (there is a “but”), in their previous six games they had earned less points than what they really deserved. That’s how it goes, and Korona were “served” by this unwritten law in their last match. They were… quiet during the last days of the transfer window, not signing even more players (they had already added many to their roster), but not selling/losing anyone either. They are sitting ninth in the table, but they can be satisfied with the football they have played so far. Their below average performances have been super few, and even in games they lost, they were fun to watch, and missed out on better results due to details.
Who would have thought that modest Sandecja Nowy Sacz, in their first ever participation in Poland’s top division, would be sitting 7th in the table after the first seven game weeks… And no one can say that they have been lucky. Everything they have earned, they deserved it, looking super solid defensively in most of their games, and making the most of their eight goals to pick up not one or two, but three wins. Ironically, the only time they got kind of lucky was in their last game, against Pogon Szczecin, in, let me remind you, Nieciecza, not Nowy Sacz, since they are using Termalica’s stadium as their “home” this season, not allowed to play at their real home. The ref missed a clear handball (elbow-ball, to be more specific) when the score was at 1-1. If Pogon had been given that penalty, the last 20 minutes would have looked very different. Alexander Kolev headed the ball in, his second goal in the match, and Sandecja got their third win of the season. Just like Korona, they were quiet the last days of the transfer window, avoiding further changes to their roster.

Korona have never hosted Sandecja before, have never played against them in an official match, in general, before.
Korona Kielce vs Sandecja Nowy Sacz: Prediction
Korona have played far more entertaining football than Sandecja so far, but have not combined that with the best possible results. Even so, I trust in their ability to create lots of chances in every single game, and to score enough to win this game, playing at home.

Korona’s win is at 2.05 betting odds. I’m not suggesting it without reservations, I do consider it risky, so I’m keeping the risk at the lowest possible avoiding special bets.
