This is it Lech Poznań considered Zagłębie Lubin an asset. The coach Dariusz Żuraw knows the Poznań team well, he cooperated with most of the players in the spring. According to Maciej Skorża, the idea of the current coach of Zagłębie Lubin to play with Lech in the second half was very good.
– We started this match as expected, i.e. aggressively and with high pressing – summed up after winning 3-2 in Lubin. – We wanted to create a threat as soon as possible and score a goal, we succeeded. At the time, it seemed to us that we were in control of the game. We created a lot of situations, the second goal was scored, there was a post and a crossbar. A third goal would have closed the game but could not have been scored.
The second half looked completely different, which coach Skorża judges as an effect of changes in coach Dariusz Żuraw. – It was the same in the Polish Cup match with Arka Gdynia, then also the changes of Darek Żuraw meant that Zagłębie had a very good entry into the second half. A similar thing happened here, and the changes contributed to it. Zagłębie created four or five hundred percent situations. Two goals after set pieces made us nervous, we gave it to ourselves. However, we were too selfish in the penalty area – said coach Maciej Skorża. – We had to concede these goals after set pieces once, but two are too many. Two goals conceded from corners, we haven’t experienced that yet.
And he complained about Lech’s effectiveness, which was again not his forte. – This is a lesson for us. I would not like such situations to happen in the future – said the coach from Poznań, praising the tactics of coach Żuraw. “He came up with a good plan for us, and I had to let Nika Kwekweskiri in order to make the center of the field at the expense of an offensive midfielder.” So that there is no space for Zagłębie.
As he added, the change of Radosław Murawski was forced. The footballer has a muscular injury, it is not yet known how serious.
