Lech Poznań - FC Midtjylland 2:1

In the first July training match, Lech Poznan beat the Danish FC Midtjylland 2:1. Kostevych and Jevtic scored the goals for the team from Poznan.

The Saturday clash with FC Midtyjlland is the fourth training match of the pre-season. So far, the team from Poznan won twice – against Widzew Lodz (3:0) and Broendby IF (1:0) – and lost once, to AEK Larnaca (1:3).

The Polish team started applying high pressing since the very first whistle. The tactics resulted in frequent goal-scoring opportunities. For example, in the 10th minute, Crnomarković’s header flew just slightly above the crossbar. In most of their offensive attempts, Lech slowly built their attacks from the back. Nonetheless, 15 minutes into the game neither of the teams managed to take full control of the match; most of the play revolved around midfield where the players fought to take possession of the ball.

In the 23rd minute, the Danish side attacked and came close to scoring, but the ball stopped on the crossbar. A couple of minutes later, Lech got a chance to change the score. Klups crossed the ball into the box where Zhamaletdinov was waiting, however, the latter’s shot was successfully blocked by the defenders.

Finally, in the 34th minute, Lech’s attempts brought desired results. Kostevych was the one who placed the ball in the back of the net from outside the penalty area with a very precise shot. Shortly before halftime, FC Midtyjlland got a perfect opportunity to equalize but their attempt was stopped by Lech’s new goalkeeper.

Zuraw didn’t make any changes in the line-up during halftime, hence the team from Poznan kicked off the second half in the same formation. In the 53rd minute, the Danish side equalized when van der Hart failed to stop da Silva’s follow-up shot from falling into the net. The excitement of fans increased, even more so when a few minutes later Lech scored again. This time Amaral dribbled around the defenders until one of them fouled the Portuguese in the penalty box. Without any hesitation, the referee awarded Lech with a penalty kick which Jevtic effortlessly converted into a goal.

The two teams continued attacking at a high intensity. Van der Hart was frequently forced to intervene, but he made no mistakes. Even in the 67th minute when Mabil received a pass inside the box, the keeper stopped the ball from crossing the goal line.

Lech’s coach decided to send in a number of new players on the pitch, including Moder who, shortly after coming on the field, fired a precise and strong shot at the goal. However, his attempt was easily blocked by Midtyjlland’s defenders. The Danish keeper was forced to intervene again a few moments later.

The last couple of minutes were indisputably dominated by the Polish side. Lech forced the Danes to move deep into their penalty area and defend whilst the Poles attacked from all sides. Nonetheless, the lack of precision meant no more goals were scored that evening, hence the game ended with a 2:1 win for the team from Poznan.
