Slask Wroclaw vs Lechia Gdansk
Competition: Poland Ekstraklasa
Date: 30 April 2018
Kick-off: 18:00 CET
Slask Wroclaw’s goalkeeper, Jakub Slowik, is not a bad keeper, but last weekend he looked like… David De Gea. He is the main reason his team managed to beat Nieciecza 2-1 away from home, he and the… carelessness of certain Nieciecza players, who “gifted” Slask two totally unnecessary penalties. The Wroclaw side were not the better one on the pitch, they were incredibly lucky to leave Nieciecza with all three points, but… that’s football, you need to send the ball in, just creating back-to-back chances, even big one, means nothing, unless you really make them count. Slask are on 37 points, looking rather safe.
Lechia Gdansk visited Cracovia Krakow last weekend having won two games in a row against neighbors Arka Gdynia, they had to settle for a goalless draw versus Cracovia, and I think they should be glad with that, no matter if they ruled on the pitch for about 75 minutes, creating – but missing – at least four good chances. In the last 15, they were very lucky not to concede, so, all in all, that point they earned, was a positive outcome. They remain above the relegation line, and most important of all, they rely on themselves. They don’t need any… favors form anyone, they are holding their fate into their own hands. Center-back Steven Vitória is out due to cards.

Both teams have two wins and a draw in their last three matches, looking… if not good, at least effective. I’m going with Lechia’s double chance.
Slask Wroclaw vs Lechia Gdansk: Betting Tips
“Draw or Lechia” pays 1.57. “Over 2.5 goals”, at 2.00, feels very probable to me, given the… nature of both teams, reaching the opponent’s box easily, but having serious problems at the back.
