On Wednesday early afternoon (4:00 p.m.), the PlusLiga runners-up will play an away match against Halkbank Ankara. Will ZAKSA play with the optimal lineup?

Personnel problems in the Grupa Azoty ZAKSA Kędzierzyn-Koźle team are not the first. During the 2023/24 season, the Polish runners-up can count on one hand the days in which they could train with the optimal, full set. The situation is not improving month by month so that ZAKSA can only think about sports challenges. Players’ health and availability are much more of a concern.

Łukasz Kaczmarek and Bartosz Bednorz flew to a Champions League match

In the league match against Asseco Resovia Rzeszów, ZAKSA had to cope without two key players. Łukasz Kaczmarek and Bartosz Bednorz were excluded from the game by illness. The attackers and receivers of the Polish runners-up and the national team were unable to recover until Sunday. Ultimately, it turned out that on Tuesday their condition improved slightly, so much so that they went on a trip with the team to Turkey.

The photo posted on social media gives hope that Kaczmarek and Bednorz will be available to coach Adam Swaczyna. The question is, however, whether the mere fact of presence will be synonymous with high sports fitness. It must be assumed that ZAKSA will face a tough fight against Halkbank. In the first meeting in Kędzierzyn-Koźle, the defending European Cup champions won by at least 3:2.

Let us remind you that this is a play-off match giving a pass to the quarterfinals of the competition. In the last three seasons, ZAKSA has won the most important club competitions on the Old Continent. A fourth title in a row? The task will certainly be very difficult, primarily due to the decimation of personnel.
