Lech Poznan take on the visitors Shakhtyor Soligorsk at the Stadion Miejski in the second leg match of the UEFA Europa League second qualification round. The match will be played in Poznan on Thursday, August 2nd. The first leg match ended with a 1-1 draw.
Even though the Polish side had been considered the favourite in the lead-up to the second qualification round against Shakhtyor Soligorsk they came off not as strong as expected in the first leg match. The Railwaymen were able to score only on the 89th minute of that fixture but increased their chance of going through to the next round a lot. However, that fixture was very boring and had only 3 goal attempts overall.

Shakhtyor have continued their super long undefeated streak which consists of 17 matches now. There is an ongoing break in the Belarusian Premier League at the moment because of the matches in the Belarusian Cup. All the teams who represent Belarus in the Eurocups gave the chance to their bench players to show themselves in those matches but not Shakhtyor. The Miners played against semi amateur team and all the key players were in the squad for that match which resulted in a 11-0 score. It seems like the head coach of the team Sergei Tashuyev wants to have his machinery in action all the time. It`s worth noting that Shakhtyor Soligorsk haven`t lost a single match since Sergei Tashuyev came to the club. The goal for Shakhtyor for the upcoming match is just to score one goal and lock up in the defense.
Shakhtyor needs to score at least one goal in order to have a chance to go through to the next round. The team has been on a roll lately so it is likely that they will be able to do it.
Prediction for the match: Shakhtyor Soligorsk to win with 1.0 handicap.
