Lech Poznan vs Stal Mielec – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Defending champions Lech Poznan start their title defence at home to Stal Mielec in the Polish top flight on Saturday. Read our top three predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

Both Teams to Score

Champions Lech Poznan start a domestic campaign under new boss John van den Brom on Saturday, though critics have already taken aim at the Dutchman following the title holder’s limp display against Qarabag in the UCL qualifiers. Stal Mielec regularly provide tricky opponents for Lech, indeed, both teams have scored in four of the last five meetings between the clubs and the visitors could catch their hosts cold this weekend. This could be an awkward opener for the champions, so back both teams to register again.

Stal Mielec +2.0 Goals Asian Handicap

As we discussed above, Stal Mielec know how to spoil the party as underdogs when they play Lech Poznan and they have lost just one of their last four Ekstraklasa meetings with their more illustrious opponents. In all but one of those fixtures, a +2.0 handicap stakes on Stal would have returned a winning bet and the same option is available at a really strong price for Saturday’s opener.
