FC Steaua Bucureşti rescued themselves with two minutes remaining: a first goal of this season's competition earning them a first point. It was a dramatic end, with FC Basel 1893 having a second away victory in UEFA Champions League Group E snatched from their grasp.
A touch of class from Marcelo Díaz had given the visitors the lead and with Steaua showing little idea of how to match his finishing skills it appeared likely to be enough. Then Adrian Popa swung the ball across and substitute Leandro Tatu arrived to drive it home.
We played with total commitment. We fought and created several goalscoring opportunities but there were also other situations when our players should have been clinical in front of goal.
Laurenţiu Reghecampf, Steaua coach
From my point of view we lost two points. We imposed our game, we created several goal opportunities, but we missed them.
Murat Yakin, Basel coach
