Timisoara gets the three points lost on the pitch against Rapid!

Although Rapid had won the game (1-0), Timisoara claimed that the Bucharest side had no right to use Dacian Varga and Tiberiu Balan, the players loaned from Sportul Studentesc after the transfer window had been closed. Rapid definitely tried to bend the laws in this case and the decision is fair in my opinion. And, yes, maybe it’s time for a title to be decided by such an intervention that affects the standings so late in the season, as we have to start at some point to obey the regulations and respect the decisions of those running the game.

With this call, Rapid will probably miss out even on Europa League football next season, which was very important for a financially struggling club,  while Timisoara’s climbs into second place and gets a boost to its chances of winning the league. Unfortunately for the fantastic Viola fans, they’ll probably lose it again on the pitch…
