In the first leg the Romanian team won 1-0, but in the second leg they lost 2-1.

As soon as the game ended, the Romanian club's top president announced the dismissal of two of the 13 reinforcements made this summer.
“Vucur and Ondrasek are out. They will be fired,” announced Gigi Becali. moments after his team fell out of European competitions at the first exchange rate.
Vucur and Ondrasek will pay with their dismissal for the Steaua fiasco, as revealed by the owner of the Romanian club. The first of them is an Austrian defender who came to the Romanian club this summer from the German Hallescher, while the second is a Czech striker that last season he played for Viktoria Plzen.
