PKO Ekstraklasa Matchweek 9: Legia Overcome Lech in Warsaw

WARSAW, Poland. November 9 (PSN) – Legia Warsaw have pushed themselves back to the podium in the ninth matchweek of the 2020/2021 PKO Ekstraklasa season.

The reigning champions proved critics wrong over the weekend, overcoming their poor form from before and managing to defeat Lech Poznan 2:1 at home. While Lech were the majority favourites coming into this fixture, mainly due to their latest results in Europe; it was Legia who instead pulled an upset win on Sunday. Despite the Legion struggling for most of the game and even awarding an own goal to the visitors, it was surprisingly the Kolejorz who proceeded to defensively fall apart in the late second half. The game decider was scored by the unmarked Rafael Lopes in injury time, who was one of the most criticized players on the pitch. Ultimately, the Portuguese striker became the unlikely hero of the night for the capital city club.
