FCSB defeated FC Botoşani 2-0 in a away game, in which the red-blue defender Bogdan Planici was eliminated in the 63rd minute. The goals were scored by Coman '31 and Gnohere '74.
At the end of the match, FC Botosani coach Marius Croitoru blamed his players for their naivety.
"We are still naive and suffering at this point, taking goals from nothing. At least in the second half, Steaua did not cross the half. Unfortunately, football is played on goals, they scored two goals, they were better than us and they won 2-0. Someone who has not seen the match and looks at the result says that they played and won … If we look at those who saw the match and saw that Steaua did not pass half the field in the second half even 11 people and after taking Red…
But I took a void on our naivety and that's it. The star is a great team, a team with very good footballers, I said that a Panţîru, a Creţu and a Florinel should not miss the national match of the match, because they are incredible footballers. Unfortunately we take goals on naiveté, the first goal we took it almost from the corner, and the second after a ball lost by us in the middle of the field. Unfortunately, we are still naive and suffering from this. Automatically when you play offensively you often reach man-to-man, but so does your share of footballers. To defend myself on two lines and to sit on 16 meters as I saw tonight a team I would not want, I am talking about the second half, because in the first half they made a good half.
I have great confidence in my players, they are players with real qualities, I play with two juniors
