Minute By Minute

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    And there we have it. An enthralling game comes to an end in Bucharest as Alexandru Chipciu's 88th minute goal gives the hosts a slender advantage going into the second leg in Bulgaria next Wednesday.
  • Substitution
    90+2
    Filip (in) - Sânmărtean (out) (Steaua)
    Lucian Sânmărtean leaves the pitch to a standing ovation. The 34-year-old has been brilliant for the hosts in this game.
  • Goal
    88
    Chipciu (Steaua) scores!
    The breakthrough finally arrives as Alexandru Chipciu makes up for his penalty miss as he nets his fourth goal of the season with a superb strike from close range.
  • Substitution
    85
    Anicet Abel (in) - Marcelinho (out) (Ludogorets)
  • Substitution
    83
    Iancu (in) - Popa (out) (Steaua)
    The goal scoring hero at the weekend, Claudiu Keșerü, is mightily unlucky not to open the scoring as his long range free-kick fizzes just past the post.
