End of the cycle for Legia Warsaw
In the last six seasons, Legia has won the championship title 5 times. After their last title in 2021, they became the most successful team in the Polish championship with 15 titles.
Since the beginning of the 2021/22 season, the two-time defending champion Legia is going through a serious crisis. Having played 12 games, the club is second to bottom, entrenched in the relegation zone. A new coach has just been appointed at the end of October, but the club continues to sink into a spiral of negative results.
Betting on the Polish championship in 2021/22
With the fall of Legia, several teams will try their luck this season. For now, the race is open for four teams within three points of each other at the top of the table.
This season 2021/22, Lech Poznan has started the championship very well. They have scored the most and conceded the least goals. In fact, only one of the victories of the best Poznan team was achieved by one goal. Seven of the eight victories of the provisional leader of the Ekstrakasa league were achieved by two goals or more.
Lech Poznan is a betting favorite at Ekstraklasa winner odds at bwin.
Recommended Ekstraklasa betting
Few goals are scored in the first half in the Polish league. The second half of the game is much more exciting, with 56.9% of the goals scored after the break. Since the first quarter contains the fewest goals, it follows the traditional quarter of an hour of observation in the Polish Football championship.
The two most frequent results this season are a 1-1 draw (16%), followed by a win by the smallest of margins: 1-0 (14%). A recommended bet would be to bet on games with less than 2.5 goals, as well as wins with one goal difference.
