Six-Goal Thriller in Kielce: Legia Warsaw’s Setback Against Korona Ends in Dramatic Draw


In the latest Sunday showdown of the 22nd round of the Ekstraklasa, spectators in Kielce were treated to a goal bonanza, witnessing a total of six goals. However, for Legia Warsaw, the match failed to serve as redemption for their recent setbacks, as they squandered a lead against Korona in stoppage time, resulting in a 3-3 draw.

The stakes were high for both sides, with Kielce desperate for points in their battle for survival, while the capital’s team aimed not only to bounce back from recent disappointments, a draw against Puszcza Niepołomice and a humiliating exit from the Conference League after a 0-3 defeat to Molde, but also to avenge their painful loss to Korona in the Polish Cup round of 16.

From the outset of Sunday’s clash, particularly evident was the determination of Blaz Kramer. The Slovenian striker capitalized early, netting in the 6th minute from Bartosz Kapustka’s assist, followed by another goal in the 30th minute from March Guala’s pass, propelling Legia to a 2-0 lead.

Dramatic Showdown in Kielce

Hope sparked for the Kielce faithful just before halftime with Martin Remacle’s goal, assisted by Nono, catching Dominik Hładun off guard. However, Hładun could have intervened more decisively.

Shortly after the break, an equalizer seemed imminent, but Evgeniy Shakhov squandered a golden opportunity. The tables turned in the 60th minute when Korona’s Marc Gual skillfully maneuvered past his marker in the penalty area, surprising Konrad Forenc with a well-placed shot near the post. Yet, this was just the beginning of the rollercoaster of emotions.

In the 69th minute, Korona caught Legia off guard once again. Danny Trejo orchestrated a beautiful play on the right flank, delivering a precise pass to Shakhov, who made no mistake this time. Legia’s response came three minutes later, with Bartosz Kapustka showcasing aerial prowess with a stunning finish. However, the goal was disallowed by match referee Szymon Marciniak, who deemed Maciej Rosołek offside.

The players under Kamil Kuzera’s guidance sensed an opportunity. Persistence paid off as Korona equalized in the second minute of added time. Adrian Dalmau showed composure amid the chaos in Legia’s box. The final score stood at Korona Kielce 3, Legia Warsaw 3.

Yellow cards were issued to Yoav Hofmayster, Martin Remacle, and Dominick Zator of Korona, and to Artur Jędrzejczyk, Patryk Kun, and Radovan Pankov of Legia.

Referee: Szymon Marciniak (Płock).

Attendance: 14,141 spectators.
