The Poles seem to have started to get better and better. After all, in January and February this year, Grabara’s good temper wrote more than his mistakes. When he stayed clean for five consecutive times, he was even close to breaking the league record. So far, he has scored 17 goals in 19 games for Aarhus in Superligaen this season and has kept 7 clean sheets.
However, in the Danish Cup semi-final, Aarhus struggled in the first leg against Landers. When they lost 2-0, Grabala was blamed for losing two goals at the same time. When the first goal was scored (66 minutes after a corner kick), the player fell into the air and missed the ball. Three minutes later, the referee decided a foul and awarded the opponent a penalty, after which the score increased. Before the meeting, the Poles were also famous for participating in protests by Aarhus fans who demanded that the stadium be opened.
Now, after the rematch, the pole is loud again. In the 24th minute after Patrick Mortensen hit, Aarhus took the lead, but in the 41st minute, hopes of a game reversal were dashed.
Then Grabala awkwardly interfered with Vito Hamershoi Mistrati’s shot from outside the penalty area. The Pole saved the ball forward from the penalty area instead of catching it, and Landers forward Marvin Egho caught up to it. The Austrian hit an empty ball and Grabara could only grab his head. He knew very well that he was wrong in this situation. By the end of the game, his side no longer scored, so the goal at the end of the first half meant that Aarhus was eliminated from the Danish Cup.
In the final, Landers will face Sonderjyske, who defeated FC Midtjylland in the rematch 3-1 (0-1 in the first leg). In the Danish league table, Aarhus ranked fourth with 38 points after 24 games. Midtjylland ranked first, with 49 of them.
