VfB Stuttgart boosted their chances of qualifying for the UEFA Europa League round of 32 with a historic victory against FC Steaua Bucureşti in Romania.

First-half goals from Serdar Tasci, Martin Harnik, Gotoku Sakai and Shinji Okazaki put the German side in a commanding position at the break, before Okazaki added a fifth on 55 minutes. Mihai Costea reduced the arrears with seven minutes to play, but first-placed Steaua had long since been condemned to their first loss in Group E.
