Real Madrid defeated Steaua with an unquestionable 1-4 despite consistent resistance from the Romanian eleven on Bucharest’s Ghencea stadium on Tuesday night. On the third leg of the Champions League Group E matches, Real delivered two quick goals by break and continued with another two in the second half of the game, when Steaua also scored once.

Ramos (9’), Raul (34’), Robinho (56’) and van Nistelroy (76’) argued against home criticism that the team faces a real crisis after a long series of defeats. For Steaua, Badea managed to score the honorable one goal in minute 64.

Still, the Romanian put a good if unspectacular show marked by many occasions to score, with several mistakes from goalkeeper Carlos.
