Steaua Bucharest bowed out of Europe for the season despite a dominant performance in the 1-1 draw against Slavia Prague at Stadionul Ghencea.

The result ensures Steaua finish bottom of Champions League Group H, while third-placed Slavia, with their faint hopes of finishing second extinguished, will get another chance in the UEFA Cup.

Steaua took the lead after 12 minutes through Valentin Badea and, although the goal was fortuitous, it seemed more would surely follow and they paid the price for missed opportunities when Zdenek Senkerik equalised 12 minutes from time.
