PKO Ekstraklasa. Legia Warsaw is still in stagnation. In the match of the 17th round, “Wojskek” showed a poor form and lost against Cracovia 0: 1 (0: 1). The team from the capital city recorded their sixth consecutive away defeat and eleventh in the season. For “Pasów” it is the first home victory with Legia since 2005.
PKO Ekstraklasa: Cracovia – Legia Warsaw 1-0
The Polish champion started the match with Cracovia with two wins in a row. In the league he defeated Jagiellonia Białystok (1: 0), and in the Polish Motor Lublin Cup (2: 1). However, Legia did not extend the favorable series.
In the first half, “Pasy” created only one situation and that was enough for the Warsaw team. After the corner kick, Pelle Van Amersfoort finished the sharp throw from Michał Siplak with a close shot. After the break, Cracovia was more dangerous. Artur Boruc’s reflex was called by Jakub Myszor, and Otar Kakabadze broke the post after a massive bomb. The legionnaires turned out to be toothless against the tight defense of the hosts. The reinforcements from the reserves (Tomasz Nawotka and Rui Gomes) and the entry of the hero of the cup match in Lublin – Szymon Włodarczyk were useless.
For Legia it is the eleventh (!) Defeat in the season. The Polish champion remains in the relegation zone, and Poznań has only a point advantage over the last one in the table, Warta.
