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.
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.
Julian Draxler, Schalke midfielder
