Steaua Bucharest qualified for the UEFA Cup spring with a 1-1 against Dinamo Kiev in Bucharest on Tuesday evening, which placed it third in Group E of the Champions League. Steaua lost all chances to move on in the League as the group is dominated by Olympique Marseille and Real Madrid.

The Ukrainian team dominated the field and obtained and advantage in minute 29, when Dinamo’s Romanian player Florin Cernat scored the first goal. The referees then annulled a second goal for Dinamo in minute 49 (Belkevici) and failed to validate yet another 27 minutes later (Satkih), after the Bucharest team scored in minute 68 (Dica).

Following the match, Cernat said that “if we looked at direct results, Steaua is worth the third place in the group. But we [Dinamo Kiev] don’t deserve the last position”.

Steaua beat Dinamo 4-1 in Kiev earlier this autumn.
