Wisla had quite poor last season, finishing only ninth in the league with 12 win, 15 draws and 10 defeats in 37 matches. The team played four friendlies this summer, beating Zaglebie Sosnowiec, losing to Karvina and drawing matches with Ruch and Slask. The first round match ended with 2-1 win over Pogon. The team played seven matches on the road in 2016, taking four wins, one draw and two defeats.
Wisla have advantage in the head-to-head record between the teams, taking 1-0 wins in last five matches. However, the last one was taken in 2011 before Arka got relegated and now it’s two completely different team. Wisla have a long way to the top of Ekstraklasa while Arka appear to be ready to battle for the points in this match and should at leas avoid defeat at own turf.
Prediction for the match: Arka Gdynia to win with +0.5 Asian handicap.
