Steaua Bucharest lost its second game in the Champions League groups, after a game in which only one action managed to aim at the Arsenal goal line. Arsenal managed to score only once, in the 76th minute, through Robin Van Persie.

Most Romanian newspapers note that Steaua played a rather good game, better than in Prague, when it lost in front of Slavia. Steaua even managed to dominated the game, holding possession of the ball over 67% of the time.
