I didn't bear to watch this match, because I knew it would have been too hard to endure a loss now. Unfortunately, although the white-violets scored first through Bucur in the 10th minute, three mistakes (Nibombe, Pantilimon and Parks) lead to three avoidable goals, two just before half-time, one immediately after. The lesson of effeciency, which Poli delivered so well in the Romanian Cup, was taught back, for the second time this season, by Dinamo.
The team still has some chance of fighting for the league title if the points come back our way, but that is a very big "if", so perhaps it would be better to just hope for a win against Steaua and see how things develop from there.
