Rapid qualifies for the quarter finals of the UEFA Cup despite loosing 1-3 to Hamburg on Wednesday night in the second leg of round of 16, due to one lead goal by Mugurel Buga.

The match unfolded under the obvious dominance of Hamburg players, who scored three goals (24' Lauth 36' Barbarez 62' Van der Vaart), but Buga’s only goal (51’) brought to Rapid the final victory of the two legs within the round of 16.
