They both shoot – yes

Djurgården went through the group stage brilliantly, finishing 1st in a quartet with Shamrock Rovers, Molde and Gent, but in the play-offs they face elimination from Poland’s Lech.

In the first match, it was difficult for the steelworkers to find their ideal physical shape, as the season in Sweden had not yet started. The team had to prepare for international performances through domestic cup matches. Despite this, Djurgården only lost 0.2 xg, although they lost with a score of 0:2.

Before the second leg, the Blue Stripes played a hard match in the quarter-finals of the cup with Malmö (3: 2 P), where they had to play 120 minutes.

“Lech” shines in the Polish Ekstraklasa. After 24 rounds, the team is 3rd in the table, although the game deserves more. In terms of expected goals scored (xg = 1.59) and goals conceded (xga = 0.9), it ranks 1st and 2nd respectively.

Unlike their rival, the “railwaymen” resumed the season earlier, and in the final round of the national championship with Piast Gliwice (1:1) they rotated.

It is worth noting that Lech lost at least one goal in all away matches of the group stage of the Conference League.

“Djurgården” must push events and open up, trying to make up for losses. I think that Lech will be able to take advantage of the rival’s lack of freshness and score their own goal at least once, but they will rather not leave their own untouched.
