Europa League: Good start for the Romanian teams

All three Romanian teams present in the EL groups had good results, with FC Vaslui, for the first time in the European cups, achieving an historic result in Rome on the “Olimpico” stadium against Lazio, leading 2-1 just 20 minutes before time. In the end S.S. Lazio saved a point against FC Vaslui in the teams’ UEFA Europa League Group D after an eventful 2-2.

Vaslui had looked on course for a famous win as captain Wesley struck twice in quick succession around the hour mark to put his side in the lead following Djibril Cisse’s first-half penalty for the hosts. Giuseppe Sculli rose well to head ten-man Lazio level soon after, however, and despite both teams’ best efforts the spoils were shared.

In another game, Ovidiu Herea’s second-half header was enough to earn FC Rapid Bucure?ti a narrow Group C victory as Hapoel Tel-Aviv FC were left to rue missed opportunities in a game both sides ended with ten men.

FC Steaua Bucharest and FC Schalke 04 could not be separated as they kicked off their League Group J bids with a goalless draw. The visitors had the best of proceedings in Cluj-Napoca but could not find a way through a determined Steaua rearguard. Klaas-Jan Huntelaar came closest to engineering a decisive goal, yet even he found the crossbar in the way of his second-half attempt.
