Our prediction for this Europa Conference League match:
Lech Poznan will look to defend their two-goal lead in the Conference League tie with Djurgarden when the two teams face each other at Tele2 Arena on Thursday evening. The Poles proved their worth in the first leg, but boss John van den Brom should warn his men against complacency. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team ahead of the reverse fixture.
The hosts, on the other hand, have to adopt an attack-minded approach this time out if they are to overcome the deficit. Home win, though, should not be considered as Djurgarden have yet to kick-off the new domestic campaign. Midfielder Rasmus Schuller is back from suspension, while defender Elliot Kack has yet to overcome his injury. Anyhow, we believe that there is a big value in betting on under 2.5 goals as Lech Poznan are likely to rely on their solid-defence in Thursday’s encounter.
Highlighted Team (Lech Poznan):
Founded on March 19, 1922, Lech Poznan are a Polish club that compete in Ekstraklasa. The Kolejorz (the Railwayman) made their debut in the Polish elite division in 1948, with the team recording a 4-3 win over Widzew Lodz.
Lech play home matches in blue jerseys and white shorts, while white is the dominant colour of their away kit. Stadion Miejski is the club’s home ground. Opened on August 23, 1980, the venue can hold up to 43,269 spectators. Lech Poznan won their first domestic championship in the 1982/83 season, with the team defending the trophy the following season. In the 2014/15 Lech clinched their last (seventh) league title.
The Kolejorz made their debut in the Champions League (former European Cup) in the 1983/84 season, with the team suffering elimination to Athletic Bilbao (2-4 on agg). Legia Warsaw are regarded as the club’s biggest rivals, with the two teams facing each other in the Derby of Poland.
