Ten days apart, Steaua Bucharest managed almost the same performance as the Romanian national football team: to lead the French by two goals and yet fail to win. Compared to the national team (Romania - France: 2:2), Steaua - the Romanian vice champion - even failed to break even, losing 3 to 5 in front of Lyon, on the Bucharest Steaua stadium, in a Champions League confrontation. Hotnews.ro sport editors describe the game as "mad" and "a match fit to become a story for the grandchildren".
