The Polish champions will play their first match in European cups, and thus the first official match in the Champions League qualifiers. The Katowice team will face Anderlecht, 10-time champions of Belgium. The Belgium champions arrived in Katowice in order to qualify in the group stages. Last year, in the qualifying phase, they defeated Polish champions Łódź 3:2, but they didn’t manage to advance to the next stage of the competition, due to lost by KuPS on penalties. The players are more experienced in matches at the highest level, and their advantage is super fast midfielders and wings who will make a lot of problems to the Polish champions. The Katowice players will approach in their opening match with numerous injuries from which the most important is midfielder Oliwia Malesa, who tore her cruciate ligaments in the match against Stomilanki. I think that Anderlecht has a better team and is favorite in this clash.
