LOTTO Ekstraklasa Round 29: Legia in Trouble After Major Upset in Gdynia

GDYNIA, Poland. April 3 (PSN) – Legia Warsaw took a massive hit to their chances of reclaiming first place after their recent visit to Gdynia in the twenty-ninth round of the 2017/2018 LOTTO Ekstraklasa season.

Despite coming to the Baltic city as favourites, Legia suffered a 1:0 upset defeat to Arka Gdynia over the weekend – the Warsaw club’s second recorded recent consecutive defeat. After the first half, the hosts had plenty of reasons for joy and rightfully deserved it, having put consistent pressure on Legia’s defensive line, especially inside the penalty box. Just after a previous attempt on goal by Rafal Siemaszko which ended on a collision with Legia goalkeeper Arkadiusz Malarz, it didn’t take Arka long to finally put the ball in the net. As in the 34th minute of the game, Andrij Bohdanov put the hosts on the board with a free kick goal that would ultimately remain as the game decider. The second half saw Legion push forward to attempt and salvage a point from the game, but found themselves in trouble when unable to pose any danger when in Arka’s half of the field. This result over Legia is interestingly the first win the club has achieved over the Capital club in Gdynia in 40 years.
