However, it wasn’t a great match, nor was it as exciting as last year in Bialystok, when Jagiellonia won 4-3 after excitement. He had better moments, more of which were weaker.
In the first half, both teams made only one shot on goal, and they had two chances to score. The hosts were the first attackers – Milan’s Koren shot was saved in the eighth minute, but Łukasz Trałka headed well after a corner kick, and Pavels Šteinbours barely hit the ball that danced in front of the goal line. But in the end, Puerto Israel succeeded in eliminating it. Jagiellonia responded quickly when the ball hit Błaej Augustyn’s feet, after Adrian Lis’ inaccurate punch, and Jaga’s stopwatch immediately hit the crossbar from behind the sixteen. Both coaches watched this match on the sidelines, but his reaction was completely different. Warta’s coach, Piotr Turek, was very impulsive, yelling at his players every now and then to actively respond to what was happening on the pitch. Ireneos Mamrut looked at the development of the situation calmly – as if he knew that his team would eventually take the lead anyway. Before that could happen, Karol Strouski made an accurate shot in the 21st minute, to which Warta responded with a beautiful work from Mateusz Czezykly and Konrad Matusevsky, which ended with an inaccurate shot from Milan-Curie (26th minute). These are basically all positions before the break. In the final quarter of the hour, Jagiellonia certainly took the initiative, and Warta was pushed into the defense, but her defense was effective.
Five minutes into the second part of the match – the difference was that the score changed to 1-1. Warta was happy first – Bojan Nasti badly passed into the teinours, very lightly. Matthews Kozemsky took charge of the football team, which replaced the injured Adam Zerlak in the first half, and passed the goalkeeper and directed it towards the net from a rather sharp angle. The joy of the hosts lasted for two minutes – Přikryl withdrew from the finish line to Puerto, who threw the ball into the penalty area. There, Fedor Černych, who hit the ball over Lis with his head, behaved better.
This goal worked out very well for the players of Bialystok, who completely dominated the events on the field. They should win this match calmly, they had great chances for that. The best was wasted in the 60th minute by Jesus Imaz, who sent the ball in in a one-on-one encounter with Liz. Worta’s goalkeeper also had a problem after a shot from Andre Trobe in the 71st minute, but he managed to defend himself. Warta’s coach responded with four more changes, because his players clearly lost their strength. However, it was clear that there wasn’t much to let into the playing field, and the castles on the wings were already very compelling. The new players will only go to the club from Poznan at the beginning of the week, and without reinforcements it will be difficult for Warta to compete in Extraklassa.
Mamrut’s coach in Jagiellonia only made one change until the 85th minute, because his team played well and looked good – much better physically. However, there was a lack of finishing poses the guests created for themselves, as well as the long-range shots. On a wet surface, since it was raining most of the time, the ball could be a problem for Fox, for example after the Tropea shot mentioned above.
In the end, Warta only waited for counterattacks and, in fact, had her chance in the 87th minute. After a gentle bird attack, Kozymski fired just wide of the goal.
Objectives: 1-0 Kozymski 48., 1-1 Chernysh 50.

After the match they said:
Pyotr Turek (Coach Warta Poznan): – We respect this point a lot, because we know how much effort it cost us, especially in the second half. After a quick goal, but also a fast-delivered goal, the game stopped working. Jagiellonia pressed us so hard, maybe if we had survived this moment after the goal we scored, this match would have looked differently. Meanwhile, Jagiellonia’s second target was hanging in the air. It’s good that we didn’t make a huge mistake, although there was one shot from our opponents from the penalty area, which speeded up our heart rate a lot.
Ireneos Mamrot (Coach Jagiellonia Bialystok): – I think that neither team created more dangerous chances in the first half. There were two instances, one on each side after set-pieces from the match. Both teams played very cautiously in defence. It was clear that in certain situations we could play the ball calmly, but the last two games we lost were a little on the players’ minds.
