UPDATE FC Timisoara, a team from West Romania, trained by Nelutu Sabau, managed to end the match in Donetk score 2-2 against the UEFA champions, trained by Romanian Mircea Lucescu. Gigel Bucur scored twice on behalf of FC Timisoara - minute 20 and 80. But the hosts recovered each time: Gladki scored in minute 61 and Fernandinho - 86'.

The game in Timisoara will take place in one week, on August 5, on Dan Paltinisanu stadium. Romanians still hope to be able to turn out with a good result.

To get to the Champions League' groups, the footballers from Timisoara trained by Nelutu Sabau must win against Sahtior, the winner of the last UEFA cup edition, also trained by a Romanian: Mircea Lucescu. Lucescu, who turns 64 today, wishes for a victory that will make Rat, Jadson & co. straight qualification favourites. The match will start at 8 PM (Romanian time) and will be broadcasted live by DigiSport and Live Text by HotNews.ro.

Mircea Lucescu will not be able to see the game from the technical bench: he has been forbidden to do so following his heart attack several weeks ago. However, he will come to watch the game, but he had to take responsibility for his decision.

"The time has come when I'm meeting Mr. Mircea as coach, as well. This is my first experience of this kind, he's somebody I've been working eight years with, but this is life, everybody defends their own interest", Ioan Ovidiu Sabau declared, trainer of FC Timisoara.

We're likely to see:

Sahtior Donetk: Piatov - Srna, Chyhrynsky, Chyzhov, Shevchuk - Duljaj, Lewandowski, Ilsinho, Willian - Jadson, Luiz Adriano. Antrenor: Mircea Lucescu.

FC Timisoara: Pantilimon - Bonfim, Cisovsky, Nibombe, Art. Karamyan - Arm. Karamyan, Alexa, Bourceanu, Curtean - Bucur, Parks.

It is worth mentioning that Sahtior has a negative record when playing against Romanian football teams (Dinamo and Rapid) in the European cup.
