Romania: Champions begin new campaign with Super success (+video)

Posted in European Football by peterbein on July 18, 2011

The annual Super Cup match has opened the new season in Romania with last season’s league champions Oțelul Galați getting the better of cup winners Steaua Bucharest with a single goal victory. Laurențiu Buș grabbed the only goal of the game after just a quarter of an hour and the champions never relinquished the lead in what was an exciting opener to the 2011-12 campaign. The Super Cup success was the first such triumph for Oțelul Galați who followed up last season’s maiden league title in style. The champions will begin the defence of their title next Monday against newly promoted Petrolul Ploieşti whilst Steaua begin their challenge to win a first championship since 2006 two days earlier with an away tie at another newly promoted side Voinţa Sibiu.
