LOTTO Ekstraklasa Round 4: Predictable Piast Lose their Edge to Legia

GLIWICE, Poland. August 13 (PSN) –  Piast Gliwice lost their leader status after losing in the fourth round of the 2018/2019 LOTTO Ekstraklasa season.

Piast fell 1:3 to struggling Legia Warsaw, who were still recovering from an embarrassing defeat last Thursday after dropping 0:2 in the first leg to Luxembourg champions F91 Dudelange in UEFA Europa League qualifying. However, Legia since that defeat decided to tweak up their line-up significantly, most notably re-introducing veteran left-back Artur Jedrzejczyk into the first team. Piast on the other hand opted to go in with no change in their starting eleven from their past league victories, which in turn allowed Legia to counter their predictable style. As a result, Piast had trouble finding space in the opponents half, and constantly saw their plays end prematurely by all the straightforward interceptions made by the Legion’s defense. Things even became easier for Legia right before the half, as Piast defender Marcin Pietrowski was red carded for a technical foul. The goals for Legia were scored by Artur Jedrzejczyk, Jose Kante and Dominik Nagy, while Michal Papadopulos responded with a lone goal for the hosts. Thanks to this victory Legia have advanced to fourth place in the standings, while Piast dropped to second place.
