Legia Warsaw have progressed to the Polish Cup final! Dean Klafuric's men beat Górnik Zabrze 3-2 on aggregate in the semifinals (2-1 at home, and 1-1 away), and are going to fight for the Club's 19th trophy in history against Arka Gdynia! The final match is going to be played at the National Stadium in Warsaw on May 2.

It was special game for Dean Klafurić who led Legia Warsaw for the first time. After a draw in the first leg away the Legionnaires had some handicap. In the first half Legia played badly and didn't create any good oportunity to score a goal. In the 61th minute Adam Hlousek scored an own goal after corner kick for Górnik and a confusion in the penalty area. 


It seemed that Legia would have problems in this game but the turning point turned out to be a red card for Górnik's goalkeeper. In the 74th minute Michał Kucharczyk scored a goal after free kick by powerful shot from 16th metre. After that the Legionnaires started playing offensive and attacking the whole team. This tactic brought results in the end of the game when Jarosław Niezgoda scored after a perfect cross from Cristian Pasquato. 


The final match is going to be played at the National Stadium in Warsaw on May 2. The rival will be Arka Gdynia, which won the cup in the last year.
