The Mainers and the Polish champions are preparing for a very important match for them, which will be played on Sunday at 17.30. Both teams have been really depressed lately, losing game after game.
Counting time from the acting hiatus in October to that in November, both are among the worst scorers. Zabrze scored at that time two draws and lost two matches. Even worse with the Legion, who are the proverbial flogging boy and have lost four games in a row. In total, in 12 matches played in the league, they lost as many as 9 and have only nine points in their account. They occupy the penultimate place in the Ekstraklasa table, ahead of only newcomer Gornik Uchna.
Despite this, despite the bad game and both, despite the cold weather, the classics of the league, a match between Górnik and Legia, is of great interest in Upper Silesia. More than 15,000 tickets for the meeting have already been sold. This season’s record of 18,659 spectators in the stands is sure to be broken. Many viewers watched the 1-3 losing match with Lech Poznan at the start of the tournament. Not less, because 18652 also watched the derby with Piast Glives. Now, there will be more fans in the stands of Arena Zabrze.
Last week, ‘Torcida’, the most committed group of Guernica fans, which tightly fills the south stand at every game in Zabrze, announced that it was ending a boycott of its team’s matches. It happened during a recent meeting with Zagłębie Lubin. Now all is well, and on Sunday afternoon the team led by Jean Urban will be able to count on the hot cheer. In addition, in Zabrze, as a rule, the sale of tickets begins at the end of the day or on the day of the match itself. Now it will definitely be the same, so you have to collect more than 20,000 fans, and that will be a huge cash infusion for the club that needs money.
Let’s add that such a large attendance, reaching more than 20 thousand fans, has long been in the Gornik Stadium, which, when it comes to occupancy, is not at the forefront of the league. Because of the epidemic, most of the matches of the previous season were played without spectators. To find a match with a high attendance of more than 20,000 fans in Zabrze, it is necessary to go back more than 2.5 years. For the last time 20 thousand. In the stands were in the stadium. Ernst Paul on Sunday 7 April 2019 in the league match of course with Legia Warsaw. Then 23,271 fans watched the match. It might be similar now. Gurnick lost that match 1-2 after that, and the Spanish players entered the list of bowlers, on the one hand was Igor Angulo, and on the other hand was Carlitos, who defeated Martin Chud twice in the end.
