Wisła equalized without a goal for Cracovia after a rather mediocre match.
Sergiu Hanca from Krakow wasted a penalty. Earlier, the referee reversed his decision on a different team for the team and punished Thiago for doing a simulation.
Wisła broke a four-game losing streak.
The Krakow derby took place in an atmosphere not the best. Wisła, after four consecutive defeats before the game, was thirteenth, and Krakow even fourteenth. The game was characterized by rough play and many physical challenges on the wet field, but fc showed great heart and had a good game.
His most exciting moments were when referee Bartosz Frankowski checked whether the help of the VAR or Krakow system should be awarded a penalty. Once he decided such a situation in favor of the Belts, and sometimes not.
So it was the guests who were closest to victory. Mateusz Lis however saved Sergiu Hanka’s shot from the penalty spot. The Romanian was the hero of the previous Krakow derby at the Wisła stadium when he scored the winning goal and his team won 1-0. This time it was much worse.
The end of Wisła’s losing streak
Wisła can be glad that thanks to this he at least broke a series of losses. After the defeat in Lubin with Zagłebie (1: 4), coach Peter Hyball made two changes in the first eleven. Konrad Gruszkowski and Michal Frydrych replaced the injured Nikola Kuveljić and Dawid Szot.
On the other hand, in Krakow, Michał Prbaj changed only one player compared to the last match with Wisła Płock (1-0). Pelle van Amersfoort, who was dealing with trauma, returned to Hanca, who had recently been sidelined for the papers. By the way, he had to rest as a result of an unusual “feat”, collecting four cards in four consecutive games.

The first section was pretty weak. The Vistula won, but did not result in much. She fired only one shot at the target. After Maciej Sadlok’s cross, Felicio Brown Forbes hit Krakow goalkeeper Lukas Hrosso right. Sadlok did attempt a finish, but from an awkward position, sending the ball into the away fans.
Cracovia could not score the goal for 45 minutes. At the end of the first half, the Stripes fans were able to rely on a goal for a while. In the penalty box, Lis threw himself at Thiago’s feet who was speeding. Referee Frankowski initially dictated a penalty, but then, after seeing this situation in the replay, he reversed his decision and not only did Cracovia not receive eleven, but Thiago also saw a yellow card for the simulation.
A short presentation by Błaszczykowski
At the start of the second half, Georgij Zhukov tapped Brown Forbes who hit the post. Then Marcos Alvarez had a good chance, but took no advantage of Wisła’s defensive error and from the 16th minute hit high above the post. Later, Hanca threw a penalty, but at least Cracovia finally got a shot on target.
After 86 minutes, Wisła’s most famous football player was Jakub Błaszczykowski’s best player was an opponent.
So the match ended in a draw and for the first time since 2007, no goal was scored in the Krakow derby.
