Iasmin Latovelvici (22), Fernando Varela (39), Alex Chipciu (43), Cristian Tanase (45+1) and Claudiu Keseru (76) scored for Steaua, while Ovidiu Rotariu (22) and Valentin Lazar (53) were Dinamo scorers in one of the most spectacular games this year.
Players and attending fans observed a minute's silence in memory of former Dinamo footballer Augustin Deleanu, who died on Thursday at age 69. The two squads again made an impression by the choreography of the fans, who splashed out banners, torches and firecrackers.
The second leg will be played on April 17, at the National Arena too.AGERPRES
