LOTTO Ekstraklasa Round 21: Cracovia Sweep by Contenders Gornik Zabrze

LOTTO Ekstraklasa Round 21: Cracovia Sweep by Contenders Gornik Zabrze

ZABRZE, Poland. December 18 (PSN) – Cracovia pulled off a shocker in their last match of the year in the twenty-first round of the 2017/2018 LOTTO Ekstraklasa season.

Going into the final game of 2017,  Cracovia had a behemoth of a task to stop top side Gornik Zabrze. Cracovia, whom had a disastrous season, were sitting in the relegation zone and now had to tackle Gornik in Zabrze, who has been nothing but impressive this season and a favourite to win the league. However, the unthinkable had happened and Cracovia actually won 4:0 in Zabrze. Goals were scored by Matica Fink, Javi Hernández and Sergei Zenjova. Gornik did score as well, but it was an unfortunate own goal by Meik Karwot that only upped the lead for the inspiring Cracovia side. With the win, the Pasy have now left the relegation zone and can rest easy for the winter break ahead. Meanwhile, Gornik lost for the first time this season at home to a minnow and will have some thinking to do on how to bounce back. As for first place, Legia Warsaw will remain as league leaders until the new year despite themselves having lost 2:0 to Wisla Plock.
