Śląsk Wrocław form and stats

2 victories, 3 draws and 0 defeats. That’s what Śląsk Wrocław have to build on here at Stadion Miejski in the Ekstraklasa. Two home wins in a row for Śląsk Wrocław bring valid hopes of a third.

In their previous game, the manager J. Magiera led his Wrocław to a defeat in the Ekstraklasa match away at Lech Poznan. The manager is hoping to put things right immediately here at Stadion Miejski.

Midfield player Petr Schwarz got a match rating of 7.45 in that game, the max score being 10. Schwarz hit three key passes and had 28 successful passes (of 35 total).

Ahead of that match, Wrocław won a home game hosting Wisla Plock (3-1).

The bookmakers consider this a fairly even contest. One could say only the home advantage separates the teams. It could be relevant to look at how Wrocław have performed in matches similar to this (as small favourites). Our database has found ten matches with the results: Won five, drawn five and lost zero.

The Śląsk Wrocław fans would probably like to see some more goals scored at their own stadium in the league, the tally being 7 in 5 matches. From these home matches, Wrocław have conceded only 4 goals.
