“Steaua above all” said a banner displayed by Peluza Sud at the first official match played in the new stadium against FC Miercurea Ciuc. The match with Dinamo proved to everyone that the supporters’ words were not in vain.
Steaua Bucharest controlled the game on the field, and in the stands the show was epic. With a very inspiring message posted in the first half and a spectacular pyrotechnic show in the second, Peluza Sud was up to the task.
Steaua-Dinamo also registered the largest attendance in the last several seasons of the Romanian Second League. Over 25,000 tickets were sold for this match.
On the field, the game started with a pyrotechnic show of Dinamo’s ultras that interrupted the match for a few minutes. After that, the two teams took each other’s “pulse”.
The first goal came in the 19th minute, when the top scorer of the Romanian Second League, Bogdan Chipirliu, perfectly executed a penalty awarded after Patriche tripped Chunchukov in the box.
Ten minutes later it was 2-0 for Steaua. Oncescu passes to Larrucea, Bogdan Chipirliu presses him, the Dinamo midfielder sends the ball to his feet and Steaua’s striker scores easy into the empty net.
In the 41st minute, Ghezali breaks into the box, leaves the ball for Bani, who shoots powerfully. The ball goes very close to the right bar of the goal. Dinamo dominated the second half, trying to be more present in attack, but failed to create any important scoring opportunities.
With this win, Steaua Bucharest is again first in League 2 with 47 points, one point behind Poli Iasi (46 points) and 5 points behind Otelul Galati (42 points). Dinamo sits in the 4th place (38 points).
