LOTTO Ekstraklasa Round 23: Lacklustre Lechia Pay the Price in Piast Win

GDANSK, Poland. February 19 (PSN) – Piast Gliwice turned the tables on Lechia Gdansk in the twenty-third round of the 2017/2018 LOTTO Ekstraklasa season.

In the most surprising result of the round, Piast Gliwice were able to grab a full three points during an away trip to Gdansk with an uncontested 2:0 (0:0) win. The beginning of the match was played at a somewhat slow pace but saw the tempo build up gradually as the game went on. Both teams attempted shots at goal from a long distance but yet it was Lechia who had some of the more dangerous goal opportunities at first, with both Marco Paixao and Flavio Paixao, who despite threatening the Piast goal failed to capitalize each time. Marco Paixao forced a big save from Jakub Szmatula with a header from six meters early on, while Flavio afterwards shot over the crossbar when in point blank range in the penalty box. For their missed chances, Piast woke up in the second half and took full advantage of their own goal chances – Mateusz Szczepaniak scored the first goal of the game in the 65th minute with a clean finish near the goal thanks to a great pass from Tomasz Jodlowiec. Later in added time Piast scored yet another goal, this time by Michal Papadopoulos to increase their lead to at 2:0. Thanks to this win, Piast have been able to push themselves out of the relegation zone.
