This season, the Romanian Cup isn’t “the losers’ trophy” anymore!


Not a single surprising result was recorded in midweek, when 16 teams fought for a place in the quarter finals of the Romanian Cup, a trophy ignorred in recent years especially by the Bucharest sides, although they weren’t very succesful in the league either… Still, there was some serious struggle for big clubs like Steaua, Poli Timisoara and CFR Cluj, with the single praise-worthy performance coming from Universitatea Craiova, who won on a very difficult ground, showing determination and fielding players that were enjoying their chance to play attacking football.

  • FC Brasov – Universitatea Cluj 2-1 (Chipciu 5, V. Badea 86 / Lemnaru 52)
  • Poli Timisoara – Vointa Sibiu (2nd division) 1-1, 4-3 on penalties (Goga 13 / Bunea 87) 
  • Dinamo – ALRO Slatina (2nd division) 3-1 (M. Niculae 2, Alexe 8, 30 / Barsan 38)
  • Gloria Bistrita – Unirea Urziceni 1-0 (Bruno Moraes 67)
  • CFR Cluj – FCM Targu Mures 2-0 (Bjelanovic 32, Sforzini 90)
  • Steaua – Sportul Studentesc 1-1, 3-1 on penalties (T. Balan 19 / Latovlevici 72)
  • Pandurii Targu Jiu – Universitatea Craiova 0-2 (Wobay 33, Prepelita 54)
  • Astra Ploiesti – Rapid 0-0, 0-2 aet (Frunza 93, 111)

    I’m so happy with the way Craiova are playing right now! Piturca has really done a fantastic job in charge so far. We won in the Cup and also beat Unirea Urziceni away (even though they stink this year), so far we’ve not lost for awhile (excluding the FC Vaslui game, where we were very unlucky)!!!
    :D
