LKS Lodz are welcoming Gornik Zabrze for another important game after their 0-1 result against 14th-placed Korona Kielce.
These are busy days for the home team, as they were in action only four days ago in the Ekstraklasa. At least it's nice to return home after that away game at Korona Kielce.
ŁKS Łódź have had a bad season and will be relegated from Ekstraklasa. Górnik Zabrze are still fighting for the big positions at the top of the table.

Górnik Zabrze form and stats
The hunting on away grounds haven’t been very fruitful for Górnik Zabrze so far with only 5 points returning home. The records show 0-5-8 (win-draw-lose). Travelling has not been lucrative for the away team as they have returned home without a win in 13 away games in a row.
Impressive finishing from Erik Jirka, Stavros Vasilantonopoulos and Jesús Jiménez secured the home win 3-2 against Cracovia Krakow in their previous game. It was a defeat before that one as the away game against Lech Poznań wasn't a success with a 1-4 loss.
So, this is expected to be a close game, an even contest. Looking at earlier matches with Górnik Zabrze playing away and similar expectations, we found five relevant matches. Results were one Górnik Zabrze win, one draw and three defeats.
The visitors have scored 9 goals from 13 away games in the league, an average of less than one per game. Górnik Zabrze struggle to build an impenetrable defensive wall in away matches with a total of 24 goals conceded from these games.
