Vaslui pushes to Europa League with 2-1 defeat of Gaz Metan Mediaş

Vaslui kept its Europa League hopes alive with a 2-1 defeat of Gaz Metan Mediaş via Wesley's late goal. With the win Vaslui trails Universitatea Craiova in the final spot for Europe by four points with the equal amount of weeks remaining.

After remaining scoreless for seventy-nine minutes Viorel Moldovan's side broke the deadlock as Bulgarian international Stanislav Genchev raced down the right channel before driving the ball in from ten metres. Only four minutes later Mediaş leveled the match as Florin Sabou sent a dipping effort from beyond the box over Vaslui 'keeper Dušan Kuciak and into the net. However with three minutes left in the match Wesley drilled a free-kick over the wall and into the net for the 2-1 win.
