It was Legia’s 19th Polish Cup victory. Their two goals came in the first half. Jarosław Niezgoda found the back of the net with a header in the 12th minute and Cafú, a Portuguese who plays for the Warsaw team, put the score at 2-0 in the 29th.
Arka’s only goal of the match at the National Stadium in Warsaw came from Dawid Sołdecki in the ninth minute of injury time.
Arka had their work cut out after Grzegorz Piesio was sent off in the 71st minute for a brutal foul.
The referee suspended the match for almost 10 minutes after fans let off flares, causing thick smoke in the stadium.
