_______________________________

In Poznan it was no secret that the match with Videoton would be the most important for the Kolejorz in the last five years. The Polish champions admittedly lost the fight for the UEFA Champions League, but performances in the UEFA Europa League would also be worth a certain prestige and money, in the case of Polish clubs – precious ranking points. Lech put in a favourable 3:0 win at home.
