Lech Poznan - Rakow Czestochowa

Under / Over
Pick: Over 2,5 goals
Odds: 1.8
Stake: 1

Match date: 22/11/2020
Lech from Poznan has nine points after opening eight games of the 1st Polish league, but his 12th place is not a realistic picture of the value of his players and team (last season Lech was second). This is evidenced by the odds for today's match against Rakow from Czestochowa, which is the leading club in the league and has 11 points more. For bookmakers, the favorite is Lech and his rise to high positions in the league is expected later in the season.

I exchanged a few messages yesterday with Croatian midfielder Karlo Muhar, who was a standard Lech first team player last season, but now has been transferred to second team due to some misunderstandings with the club's management. He claims that hard rhythm of domestic and European matches is the main reason for Lech's weaker than expected results, but now a two-week break can have a positive effect on the team.
For this match against Rakow, he says it could be very interesting because both teams will not calculate, but look for a victory, especially Lech for whom every other result today will be a failure.
It is also important that both coaches like offensive style of play. Lech strategist Dariusz Żuraw will not be able to count on goalkeeper Van der Hart and defender Butko, but they are out of action since the start of the season, while several national team players had obligations at the break, but all returned in time for this match.

Coach Żuraw should therefore start with the best squad at the moment, and he will have a special motive because on Friday he signed a new contract with the club from Poznan, which he should lead until 2023.

Rakow from Czestochowa were second division team until last season, but they kept most of the main players and brought some more reinforcements in the last 1,5 year.
Team who led by coach Marek Papszun knows each other very well, they play compactly and in a high rhythm, so it is not surprising that they have the most points (20) and the most goals (20) scored so far in nine games. They have several very offensive and efficient midfielders (lopez, Cebula, Tijanić...), and in attack they have excellent scorer from Latvia Gutkovskis. One of their important players is Croatian right back Fran Tudor (formerly in Hajduk), who constantly joins attack side of pitch with center-shots for attackers.
Rakow plays without fear and imperatives, and in eight of his nine league games this season, at least three goals have been scored in total.
Very important defender Tomas Petrasek (two goals in eight appearances) and young midfielder Ben Lederman are injured, as well as the long-absent Szczepański and guest coach will not be able to count on those three players today.

Last season, Lech beat Rakow in both games 3-0 and 3-2, and the impression is that an efficient game is still being prepared today, with at least three balls in the goalkeeper's nets."
