FC Schalke 04 were left frustrated after failing to break down a spirited FC Steaua Bucureşti side in UEFA Champions League Group E.

The result leaves the Bundesliga team needing to beat FC Basel 1893 – who usurped them by going second in the section with a 1-0 defeat of Chelsea FC – at home on matchday six to qualify for the last 16. For Steaua, a third draw in succession means they will finish bottom of the pile.

Match in 5

  • Steaua equal 22-game winless UEFA Champions league record
  • Schalke must beat Basel on matchday six to progress
  • Romanian side bow out of Europe with third successive draw
  • Visitors have 16 attempts but fail to score
  • Hosts conclude campaign against Chelsea

Reaction

We played a good match, especially in the second half. I cannot be angry with any of the players because all of them did their best.

Laurențiu Reghecampf, Steaua coach

We would have liked to seal the deal today but even after this draw our situation does not change. We have a decisive match against Basel at home and simply have to win.

Minute By Minute

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    Schalke had the better of the chances in the first-half, when goalscoring opportunities were at a premium. But in the second period both teams began to open up and the Romanian champions created some golden opportunities to win it late on. It was not meant to be, though, and Steaua are now eliminated from the competition.
