Legia Warsaw vs Jagiellonia Bialystok
Competition: Poland Ekstraklasa
Date: 27 February 2017
Kick-off: 20:30 CET
It’s hard to believe that Legia Warsaw’s game last weekend at Cracovia Krakow ended 0-0. Based on the number of chances both teams missed, and on the type of chances they missed, the game could have ended… 2-2. Did Legia deserve to win? Yes and no, in the sense that they missed the first big chances in the match, the last ones as well, but in between, it was Cracovia who came so-so close to scoring, and not just once or twice. All things considered, Legia should be ok with that one point. They have… company at the top of the table, Jagiellonia Bialystok, they are no longer alone, but they are still up there, and they are hosting them, so this is their golden opportunity to leave them three points behind.
He did it again… A few days ago, I dedicated some lines to Martin Pospíšil, Jagiellonia Bialystok’s Czech midfielder, praising him for how hot he had been looking. The guy who scored just once in the first half of the season, has now scored in all three matches after the restart of the championship, following the long winter break. It was Jaga’s third goal against Lechia Gdansk, early in the second half, the one that put the game to bed (3-1). He had other beautiful moments earlier, but he wasn’t the only one who caught the fans’ attention; Slovene Roman Bezjak scored his first goal for the Bialystok side in his third appearance, having signed at them last month, coming from Darmstadt, where he hardly played. Jagiellonia looked great, returning my trust in them. Well, kind of. I did suggest their win (2.00), but truth is, I didn’t expect them to look that impressive offensively.

Legia Warsaw vs Jagiellonia Bialystok: Prediction
I feel draw is the most probable result, but seeing how well Jagiellonia’s double chance is paying, I feel going with that certainly minimizes the risk, still paying well.
Legia Warsaw vs Jagiellonia Bialystok: Betting Tips
Jaga’s double chance pays 2.15 and is my only tip. They have been super effective in their three matches after the winter break, getting better and better every week that passes.
