Hutnik Krakow form and stats

4 victories, 2 draws and 5 defeats. That’s what Hutnik Krakow, who have the most conceded goals (53) in 2. Liga East, have to build on here at Stadion Suche Stawy in the 2. Liga East.

The Hutnik crowd went home unhappy last time out, seeing their beloved players lose 1-3 to Znicz Pruszkow here at Stadion Suche Stawy in a 2. Liga East match. A strong away win before that one, visiting Olimpia Grudziadz and winning 2-1.

This is expected to be a close game, with Hutnik Krakow perhaps considered small favourites due to their home advantage. Looking back at earlier matches similar to this one (expected to be close with Hutnik as a small favourite), we find one game. Hutnik Krakow has won one of these, drawn zero and lost zero.

The match schedule is unforgiving for Hutnik Krakow as they have a new game in only four days, a 2. Liga East match thankfully also at home. Stargard Szczecinski are visiting.

The Hutnik fans have had their share of opportunities to cheer home goals this season, having seen 18 goals in 11 league matches. Hutnik are struggling defensively, conceding on average more than two goals per home game (23 from 11 played).

Olimpia Elbląg form and stats

The hunting on away grounds haven’t been very fruitful for Olimpia Elbląg so far with only 9 points returning home. The records show 2-3-6 (win-draw-lose).

Olimpia play their second straight away game, having lost the previous one 1-2 to Soko Ostroda (placed 9th). A loss against Stal Rzeszow was the result prior to that, in a home game.

So, this is expected to be a close game, an even contest. Looking at earlier matches with Olimpia playing away and similar expectations, we found eight relevant matches. Results were three Olimpia Elbląg wins, three draws and two defeats.

There might be some complaints about the fixture list from the Olimpia Elbląg manager J. Trzeciak as the team has another away game coming up in only four days, this time against Katowice.

Olimpia find the net regularly in their away games. 11 goals from 11 away fixtures in the league. It's been trouble in front of goal recently, as only 1 of these goals has been scored in their last three away matches. As opposed to that, Olimpia have seen the ball go into their own net 16 times on the road.
