Stal Mielec have collected 9 points from their Ekstraklasa home games so far after 2-3-3. Three draws from their last three home games means a steady supply of points here at Stadion MOSiR, but a victory now would be sweet for Mielec.

Mielec drew their last game, also a home match. Cracovia Krakow (placed 14th) was the opponent, 0-0 the score. Heartbreak before that as Stal Mielec lost 1-2 at Górnik Zabrze's place.

This is expected to be a close game, with Mielec perhaps considered small favourites due to their home advantage.
