The Vampirii Albaştri fought back and three minutes past the half hour as veteran Dorel Zaharia redirected Liviu Băjenaru's long free kick in. Elias Bazzi came back three minutes past the hour with the winning strike as he dipped a free-kick from sixteen metres over the wall and into the net. Bistriţa's chance for a comeback were complicated with eighteen minutes left as they were forced to play a man down when Cristian Coroian was sent off with his second yellow-card.
