Lech Poznań had a chance to jump back from Lechia Gdask after Gdańsk lost points in the match against Stal Mielec. The team from Poznań was additionally irritated after two disappointing draws with Stal and Górnik Łęczna. However, in the previous round, Piast surprisingly lost to Warta Poznań after a poor match, so both teams had something to prove.
Unfortunately, it was not visible on the pitch. The first half is perfectly illustrated by the words of the Canal + Sport commentator Radosław Murawski, who said that Piast’s defense game and the fact that Lech does not allow counterattacks deserve praise. it says a lot about how many and what situations the two teams have created for themselves. The dominant side was Lech, but apart from a few, not particularly dangerous shots from the penalty area, he was unable to create a situation for himself. The players probably also felt that it would be hard to get any opportunity, so Ishak, for example, demanded a penalty kick after playing one of the defenders with his hand. The repetitions showed how far from the truth was the attacker of the hosts. The ball hit the opponent in the thigh, and the hand was not even close to her.
On the side of the inhabitants of Gliwice, only Toril’s overturn could be noted, as well as the last situation from the first half. Katranis perfectly sounded from the depth of the field into the “sixteen”. The ball missed all Lechites, and Sokołowski caught up with it and defeated Bednarek. The problem is that Tomas Huk, who was offside, also joined the ball. The judges decided that he had participated in the action and the goal was not recognized.
The beginning of the second half was decided. Lech won with Piast
In the second half, Lech entered the field with a decision to improve. The Lechites pushed Piast to a deeper defense. In the 48th minute it could have been 1-0. Salamon hit from a distance, and after a ricochet, the ball finally hit Ba Louy, who was put in at half-time, and he volleyed, but Plach rebounded the ball. Piast’s goalkeeper had nothing to say in the 55th minute. Pereira stepped into the penalty area and fired in on the right. Piast’s defenders completely forgot about Amaral, and this one scored 1-0 with a flat shot from about 11 meters.
By the end of the match, not much else happened. Lech left the air after scoring a goal, and Piast could not threaten the goal of Bednarek. The hosts had a few counterattacks, but ended them badly and finally they exhausted the win with Piast Gliwice. Maciej Skorża’s team is the league leader, and Piast is tenth so far.
