Nieciecza vs Slask Wroclaw
Competition: Poland Ekstraklasa
Date: 20 April 2018
Kick-off: 18:00 CET
Nieciecza played a… decent first half at Pogon Szczecin last weekend, but they were nowhere to be seen in the second half, lost the game 2-0, and were rather lucky to avoid a humiliation. They remain second-to-last in the table, below the relegation line, but just one point behind Piast Gliwice, meaning that anything can still happen. They have won just one of their last seven Ekstraklasa matches, even though things look brighter when you isolate their home games. Three wins in six matches is their record lately, decent, something that allows them to keep dreaming of playing Ekstraklasa football next season as well.
The glass for Slask Wroclaw “talking” about their game against Sandecja Nowy Sacz last weekend is mostly full, they won it, picked up all three points, which is what mattered the most, they are five points ahead of Nieciecza (the first team below the relegation line), but… there are two “but” points that make the same glass look not totally full. First, Slask were hosting the weakest side of the league, they took the lead just 40 seconds into the match, but still failed to finish it off, playing at home, be reminded. Second, they lost Sito Riera. The Spanish midfielder got sent-off, and then almost headbutted the referee(!), risking getting in major trouble. Slask absolutely must earn a draw in this match, or else they will get in serious trouble.

Nieciecza are considered slight favorites to win the game, but I trust Slask to earn at least a draw.
Nieciecza vs Slask Wroclaw: Betting Tips
Slask’s double chance pays 1.55. “Both teams to score” is at 1.72, and “over 2.5 goals” pays 1.95. Both teams allow a lot of chances to their opponents, usually, so I can see the game have at least three goals.
