Lech Poznan Prediction – Can Lech Poznan move into 4th spot?

With a superior goal difference already of +2 over current 4th placed team, Cracovia Krakow, Thursday night’s hosts, Lech Poznan, know that all three points in this clash against Arka Gdynia at their INEA stadion will lift them up into 4th place on the Ekstraklasa ladder.

The hosts bring a solid looking 6-match unbeaten sequence into this midweek Polish top flight clash which includes wins over Piast Gliwice 3-0, Wisla Plock 2-0 and a 2-0 win over LSK Lodz, as well as picking up points in draws with Pogon Szczecin, Korona Kielce and Slask Wroclaw.

This stubborn looking set of results have helped maintain Lech Poznan’s bid for a top eight finish in the Ekstraklasa and they hold a 3-point cushion ahead of 9th placed Wisla Plock prior to Thursday night’s action.

After a shaky start to the season on home turf, results in their own backyard have also improved after starting with just 1 win from their first 4 matches, Lech Poznan have now lost just 1 of their last 6 matches at home.

Arka Gdynia Prediction – Can Arka Gdynia pull off upset?

Recent results have also seen an upturn in fortunes for the visitors, Arka Gdynia, following a miserable run of capturing just 2 wins out of their first 14 matches of the new Polish top flight season, which were wins against Gornik Zabrze and LSK Lodz.

However, Arka Gdynia have since made steady improvements and head into this clash having won 3 of their last 5 matches overall in the Ekstraklasa with victories gained over Wisla Krakow, Korona Kielce and Zaglebie Lubin.

13th placed Arka Gdynia will therefore be in a more confident mood than a few weeks ago, especially as they’ve also won 2 of their last 3 matches on their travels amidst an overall away record of 3-0-7 9/18.

The fact remains though, that the visitors have struggled on the whole away from home this season, and the bigger picture shows that Arka Gdynia have won just 4 of their last 20 away matches in the Ekstraklasa.
