CFR wins Romanian Super Cup after penalty kicks

CFR Cluj, the Romanian Cup winner, has won on Sunday evening the Romanian Super Cup after defeating Unirea Urziceni, score 3-2 after the penalty kicks. At the end of the 90 minutes of regular time and 30 minutes of extra time the two teams were in a tie, score 1-1. Cadu was the player that brought CFR the victory after converting the final penalty kick. Unirea had previously wasted three of its penalty kicks, with CFR wasting two. Cadu brought CFR the title two seasons ago after scoring the only goal of the game against U Cluj (score 1-0). The game was balanced, having a fairly small number of clear goal scoring opportunities.

Cadu opened the score for CFR in the 41st minute but Unirea had a great start in the second half, with Sorin Frunza scoring the equalizer in the 49th minute from a free kick. CFR’s Kone shook the goalpost in the 84th minute, the last big occasion of regular time. The game was fairly tense, with Unirea head coach Dan Petrescu being sent to the stands and with CFR Cluj’s player Deac being sent off.

Unirea Urziceni – CFR Cluj 1-1 (0-1, 1-1) at the end of extra time, 2-3 after penalty kicks. Goal scorers: Sorin Frunza (49th minute), Ricardo Cadu (41st minute).
