League I: Steaua wins derby against Dinamo, 3-1

Although the half-time break found it one goal down, Steaua managed to win its derby against city rivals Dinamo Bucharest on Sunday evening, in a controversial and tense game in which Belgian referee Alexandre Boucaut managed to annoy everyone by failing to award two clear penalties for Dinamo and awarding a debatable one for Steaua. Alexe opened the score for Dinamo in the 38th minute. Raul Rusescu (63rd minute, penalty) and Szukala (84th and 87th minutes) scored for Steaua.Laurentiu Reghecampf’s team tops the League I standings, being 9 points ahead of Pandurii Targu Jiu. Reghecampf stated after the game that despite the referee’s mistakes Dinamo did not deserve to win given the fact that they defended throughout the game. “All victories were beautiful but the one this evening is extremely important, especially since we managed to come back after being led. Anyway, I don’t think a team that defends 90 minutes deserves to win a game,” Reghecampf told Mediafax. Reghecampf was optimistic ahead of the Europa League game against Norway’s Molde on Thursday.
