Legia Warsaw have celebrated their Polish Ekstraklasa title with a 5-0 thumping of reigning champions Slask Wroclaw in the final round.
Having wrapped up the 2012/13 Polish championship during the week with a scoreless draw away to Ruch Chorzow, Legia put on an exhibition in front of their home fans with Marek Saganowski hitting a first-half hat-trick against Slask.
Michal Kucharczyk and Miroslav Radovic added a goal each for Legia to round out their five-goal victory on Sunday.
The big win ensured Legia finished six points clear of second-placed Lech Poznan, who defeated Korona Kielce 2-0 on the final day of the season, while Piast Gliwice failed to move above Slask into third as they were stunned 3-2 at home by bottom club GKS Belchatow.
Podbeskidzie defeated Widzew Lodz 2-1 to secure a berth in the next season of the Ekstraklasa, moving out of the relegation zone, above Chorzow, who suffered a 1-0 loss to Jagiellonia Bialystok.
In other Ekstraklasa results, Gornik Zabrze won 2-0 away to Lechia Gdansk, Zaglebie Lubin defeated Wisla Krakow 1-0 and Pogon Szczecin overcame Polonia Warsaw 3-1.
