LOTTO Ekstraklasa Round 33: Legia Reclaim Lead in Title Race

WARSAW, Poland. April 30 (PSN) – After falling out from first place for several of weeks, Legia Warsaw were able to reclaim the title race lead in the thirty-third round of the 2017/2018 LOTTO Ekstraklasa season.

Legia continued their winning streak on Friday and defeated Korona Kielce 3:1 to bypass rivals Lech Poznan and Jagiellonia Bialystok to secure first place in the league standings after this round. Goals from Sebastian Szymanski, Jarosław Niezgoda and Miroslav Radovic allowed the Polish champion to steal points from Korona in a comfortable fashion with little worry. Goran Cvijanovic scored the lone goal for the Kielce outfit. While Legia currently find themselves in a favourable position, interim coach Dean Klafuric’s team has no room to slip up anymore considering their remaining schedule will be a very strenuous one. Next game will be against title contenders Jagiellonia, then Wisla Plock who are just outside the top 3, after that Gornik Zabrze who presented mighty impressive form this week and finally a showdown in Poznan with Lech Poznan to wrap up the season. For Legia, it will be all or nothing from this point on.
