It was a friendly match in Gdynia and Arka’s first draw in LOTTO Ekstraklasa this season. Arka Gdynia SSA 1:1 Zagłębie Lubin S.A..
Arka from the very beginning was showing a lot of respect for Zagłębie. It didn’t end well as in 25th minute Marcjanik scored an own goal and guests from Lubin were leading 1:0.
One minute later Szwoch had a brilliant chance to make it a 1:1 draw, but unfortunately he missed. Arka kept trying and in 36th minute Warcholak was very close scoring a goal but Zagłębie’s goalkeeper was in a good shape tonight.
The second half was much more interesting to watch. In 50th minute Arka’s captain Miroslav Bozok scored a beautiful volley and it was 1:1. Both Arka and Zagłębie had their chances to score more goals but the final score didn’t change.
At the press conference after the match both coaches admited that the draw was a fair result. Coach Niciński was glad that his players managed to score a goal in the second half and get 1 point playing against such strong opponent.
