Pogon - ZawiszaMatch of polish Ekstralasa between Pogon Szczecin and Zawisza Bydgoszcz.
Both team has pretty the same potential. Pogon home has 3-4-2, while Zawisza away has 1-3-4. Not the best away form, but this season we have already won in Szczecin 3-1 in polish cup. In Bydgoszcz in league was 1:1.
Zawisza is in a decent form. Last week we have dominated poor Widzew home and won easily 2:0. Pogon lost away 1:3 with Legia.
All in all i think that Pogon is in far much worst form than Zawisza. They have lost to Legia 1:3 (Zawisza won home 3:1 with Legia), draw home with really really REALLY weak Zaglebie 1:1 (Zawisza won home 2:0) and lost away with poor Widzew 1:2 (Zawisza won home 2:0).
Zawisza won home over Widzew 2:0, draw away with Jagiellonia 1:1 after good match, and lost 0:1 away with Ruch after goal in 89' while Zawisza had to play without one red carded Goulon from 25'. So we are clearly in decent form, and just had lil bitlack of luck.
All this 3 matches of Zawisza were without 2 primary players: Herold Goulon (16/2) and Vasconcelos (12/6). Today they will be back so Zawisza will be a lot more powerfull with them since i can sya that they are ones of the most quality players in a team.
On the other hand Pogon has a huge problems with squad, and that is the main reason why i take Zawisza win.
They will be without 2 japaneese players, who are imo not elss than 30% of Pogon's power. Akahoshi (18/6) and Murayama (18/4) won't play today. Both are midfielders. Another primary midfielder Rogalski (17/0) is also out. pogon dont have strong bench so it will be hard for them to fullfill midfield. Especially that Zawisza's wings are in evry good form.
Also, coach of Pogon Wdowczyk won't be on bench due to red card from last match. Another advantage for Zawisza.
One more thing. Zawisza's fans are officialy banned for that match due to last match riots with police, when polcie attacked fans when they wanted to get out from stadium due to protest. Police attacked mixed fans (kids, mothers, ultras, hoolies) with gas and gum-guns and one of the fans lost his eye when polcieman shoot him in the face with gum-gun ... (1312). Hope that abd atmosphery in club wont cause negative aspects on players.
