LOTTO Ekstraklasa Round 37: Legia Rise as Champions in Poznan

POZNAN, Poland. May 20 (PSN) – Legia Warsaw have been crowned the league champions after claiming an away win with Lech Poznan in the thirty-seventh round of the 2017/2018 LOTTO Ekstraklasa season.

Legia were awarded their 14th league championship title on Sunday after their match with Lech Poznan was decided into a 3:0 walkover win for the guests. The capital club only needed a point from their trip to Poznan to guarantee themselves the title, but ended up earning far more than that. Dean Klafuric’s team came into the game motivated and hungry for glory against a demoralized Lech squad and the score reflected that already in the 9th minute. Domagoj Antolic scored his first goal for Legia and put his team in the lead with a win in sight.

Lech attempted to retaliate, but each of their efforts were completely denied by Legia keeper Arkadiusz Malarz, who showcased an impressive performance all game long to keep the Kolejorz at bay. Once Michal Kucharczyk fired in the second goal, things started to look like an almost certain Legia win, a fact that angered Lech fans. This resulted in them invading the pitch in frustration after knowing fully well that their team had failed to stop the Legionistas.

The match was immediately called off and a walkover win was right after awarded to Legia who celebrated their 14th title in history in their fierce rival’s stadium. Despite the loss, Lech Poznan still held a European cup spot to join Jagiellonia Bialystok and Gornik Zabrze in qualification to the UEFA Europa League next season. Legia on the other-hand will compete in the UEFA Champions League qualifiers.

Meanwhile, with Bruk-Bet Termalica Nieciecza losing to Piast Gliwice on Saturday, they join last place Sandecja Nowy Sacz in relegation from the Ekstraklasa.
