Jagiellonia Białystok hosted Legia Warszawa and did great. The heroes of the match were Jesus Imaz and Jose Naranjo. Two Spaniards led the Pride of Podlasie to an unexpected victory.
The match between Jagiellonia Białystok and Legia Warszawa was announced as one of the two big hits of the 10th round of Ekstraklasa. It turned out that it was absolutely right, although the team from the capital did not do well this time. The pride of Podlasie – on the contrary.
The Spaniards shined in the Jagiellonia-Legia match
If the visitors thought that the hosts would be afraid of them, they were wrong at the very beginning of the match. Coach Siemieńc’s players boldly moved forward and scored the first goal before the end of the quarter. The trio of Bartlomiej Wdowik, Jesus Imaz and Jose Naranjo did an excellent job. The first one made an excellent cross, the second played the ball perpendicularly, and the third one finished the action alone in the “sixteen” of the opponents.
Legia Warszawa clearly couldn’t cope with Jagiellonia, which was well positioned and pressing forward. Additionally, the absence of Paweł Wszołek meant that offensive charges on the wings did not provide much to Wojskowy. It was much hotter when the Pride of Podlasie attacked. For example, in the 27th minute, Afimico Pululu hit the post. However, less than 60 seconds had passed and it was actually 2-0. Dominik Marczuk won the duel on the left side, he passed the ball to Jesus Imaz, and he made no mistake from close range. Throughout the first half, Kosta Runjaic’s players made one good move – in the 45th minute, when Makana Baku made a good pass to one of his teammates and he skipped it.
Clear result of the Jagiellonia – Legia match
A few moments after the start of the second half, Szymon Marciniak pointed to a penalty kick for Jagiellonia for a foul on Pululu, although after consulting the VAR car, he withdrew his decision. It turned out that before the attacker was knocked to the pitch, he had committed an offense against Patryk Kun. Kosta Runjaic’s players got away with it. Legia Warszawa’s response could have been instantaneous, because a few moments later Makana Baku hit the post.
Later in the match, the visitors continued to press, but were unable to create any good opportunities to score a goal. In fact, throughout the entire match, the Army did not score a single shot on target. In addition, at the very end Marco Burch received a second yellow card and weakened the capital team. Ultimately, the Pride of Podlasie won 2-0.
