Sobiech was born in Ruda Śląska. After spending four years at Ruch Chorzów, where he started his professional career, Sobiech joined Polonia Warsaw in July 2010. Polonia paid one million euros for him. He was named Ekstraklasa discovery of the year.
On 9 August 2018, Sobiech joined Lechia Gdańsk on a three-year contract. In his first season at Lechia Sobiech found himself to be the second choice forward behind Flávio Paixão. His season started well, scoring a Hat-trick against Zagłębie Lubin, but then only managed to score another 4 league goals in his next 23 games. Sobiech fared better in the Polish Cup that season, scoring 3 goals in 4 games, including scoring the only goal in the 2019 Polish Cup final against Jagiellonia Białystok to secure the cup win for Lechia. Despite statistically not having the best season, Sobiech played an important role in Lechia securing their joint highest league finish in their history of third, and leading the club to cup success. The following season started well for both Sobiech and Lechia, with Sobiech coming on as a substitute as Lechia won the Polish SuperCup.
After playing for the Poland U-21 team, Sobiech received his first call-up to the Poland national football team in May 2010. He debuted on 29 May against Finland, replacing Ireneusz Jeleń in the 89th minute. The match ended in a goalless 0–0 result. He scored his first goal on 22 May 2012 in a 1–0 friendly win against Latvia.
He is married to the Polish Handball player Bogna Sobiech, since 2011.
