Prediction

The prediction for this match favors Gornik Zabrze as the winner. Playing at home at Stadion im. Ernesta Pohla where they have been strong throughout the season gives them an edge over Puszcza Niepołomice. Additionally, Gornik's higher league position and better goal difference indicate that they are the stronger side overall. However, football is unpredictable and Puszcza's recent upturn in form could see them pose a serious challenge to the hosts. With both teams having contrasting motivations at this stage of the season – Gornik pushing for a higher finish and Puszcza fighting to improve their standing – it sets up what could be a closely contested match.
