Tip Reasoning

Thursday’s Polish Ekstraklasa action sees rock bottom Zagłębie Sosnowiec doing battle with title contenders Legia Warsaw. The visitors are expected to secure all 3 points with very few issues.

After returning to the Ekstraklasa following a 10 year absence, Zagłębie Sosnowiec’s campaign is going exactly as expected; in the sense that they look certain for an immediate return to the second tier. With a small playing budget and a squad lacking quality as a result, Zagłębie look well below the standard of the top flight and current find themselves bottom with just 12 points from 19 matches.

Having been hammered 6-0 on home soil by Lech Poznan last time out, confidence really is at rock bottom in Zagłębie ranks and having also taken just 1 point from their last 6 matches, their situation doesn’t look like improving any time soon. With just 2 wins from 18 games so far this season, it’s more than apparent the Brynica Boys are not cut out for this level and the last thing they need now is Legia coming into town.

Indeed, the visitors are starting to hit their stride now as they look to defend their crown for the fourth year in a row. Legia have been the dominant force in Polish football throughout this decade and now 2nd and just two points behind Lechia Gdansk, they’ll certainly be there or thereabouts come the end of the campaign.

Legia have now won 4 of their last 5 league matches and what’s been most impressive about said run is the fact they’ve not conceded a single goal. With Sebastian Szymański and Carlitos spearing the attack, Legia go into every game knowing that if they can keep things tight at one end, they’ll have no issues hitting the net at the other and that’s a formula that’s clearly working well at the moment.

This fixture is about as David vs Goliath as you can get in a regular league match and on this occasion, David really looks like having no chance whatsoever. Zagłębie are in simply awful state and having just been hammered by a side of comparable quality to Legia, it’s hard to envisage them causing the visitors even the slightest of problems.

All things considered, given their excellent defensive performances recently, backing Legia to win to nil looks a great way to play is exactly where our money is going. Zagłębie have failed to score in 3 of their last 4 matches and Legia should be able to extend their sequence of consecutive clean sheets with a dominant 3-0 victory.
