 On October 14th, last Speedway Euro Championship round will take place in Lublin. Situation in general classification is more than interesting. Who will take the medals? We asked journalists being a part of speedway family about their predictions. Their biggest favourite is Vaclav Milik.

 Dariusz Ostafiński (WP Sportowe Fakty):
1. Vaclav Milik
2. Andrzejs Lebedevs
3. Artiom Laguta

Despite the fact that Vaclav Milik has 4 points less than Lebedev, Milik will take the lead in the best moment. Latvian is having some problems with his bikes. Rafał Kowalski's engines are not as fast as they were in the middle of the season, so he’ll lose the first place in general classification.

3. Artiom Laguta

Milik was in a very good form in last few weeks, so he will catch up with Lebedevs. Latvian is not in a good shape as well, so 4 points is too less to defend the leading. However, Laguta is still strong and Jonsson made pretty good last part of the season. Despite that, Ledebevs will finish second.

1. Vaclav Milik
2. Artiom Laguta
3. Andrzejs Lebedevs

Lebedevs has a little advantage over other riders, but he lost his form, and it was easy to see in PGE Ekstraliga playoffs. Milik and Laguta are on fire now. Czech made a lot of huge results last time, so he’ll be on the top for sure. Laguta had a long break, but his last performances were more than fantastic. I think he won't lose any speed.

2. Andreas Jonsson
3. Andrzejs Lebedevs

At the end of the season, Lebedevs is slower than a few weeks earlier, so I don’t believe that he will defend the lead. Milik has additional motivation – he still can fight for GP wild card. Last years show, that SGG organisers like to give the chance for European champion. Last time Jonsson was in a good shape too, so he can close the 6 points gap. Artiom Laguta won’t finish on the podium, because he hasn’t enough motivation in individual tournaments.

3. Andjrzejs Lebedevs

A lot of riders finished league racing a long time ago, so I think there won’t be any surpises. We have three favourites to take the medals. Milik is only 4 points behind Lebedevs and he also had pretty good season finish, so he can overtake his rival. A fight for silver would be nice. There will be fight against Laguta nad Lebedevs. If Latvian is as slow as in the last Ekstraliga meetings, he will lose. However Laguta needs as good result as in Gustrow.

For me, after final in Lublin, contenders in top 5 will stay the same, but their positions can shift. In my opinion, Vaclav Milik will take the title after very good season. Lebedevs will take the silver. Third in general classification will be Artiom Laguta. However, I’m not a betting expert, so you have to look at it with a grain of salt.
