Romanian football champions CFR Cluj drew 1-all at home against Young Boys Berne of Switzerland in Europa League Group A. Mario Rondon scored the first goal for CFR on minute 62, but 7 minutes later the Swiss team evened the odds with a goal scored by Christian Fassnacht. The match was balanced and quite physical. The visiting side had numerous scoring opportunities, but the response from CFR was also solid. In the other Group A fixture, AS Rome of Italy drew nil-all against CSKA Sofia of Bulgaria at home. CFR remains the group leader with 4 points in 2 matches, the same as Rome, but with a better goal-average ratio.
