Gornik Zabrze vs Cracovia – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Gornik Zabrze are favourites to pocket three points at Cracovia’s expense in the teams’ first Ekstraklasa fixture of the new campaign on Monday. Read our top three predictions for this week’s fixture below.

Gornik Zabrze to Win

Just one place and one point separated Gornik Zabrze (8th) and Cracovia (9th) in last season’s Ekstraklasa, though the last meeting between the clubs – which was relatively recent – provided plenty of interesting insight. Gornik were much the better team and ran out 3-0 winners over Cracovia in March and with that result still fresh in the respective players’ minds, we recommend siding with the hosts again on Monday.

Over 1.5 Gornik Zabrze Team Goals

The ease at which Gornik Zabrze put Cracovia to the sword in March was notable and having already shown that they have an edge sharp enough to carve open The Stripes’ backline, Gornik could enjoy another productive outing in the final third on Monday. Gornik have notched at least twice in six of their last ten home assignments and they can be backed at a decent price to hit over 1.5 goals again on Monday.
