Steaua ready for Twente match

The head coach of Steaua Bucuresti, Ilie Stan, said the match against Twente in the Europa League, is going to be played tomorrow (Thurs) despite weather conditions which slightly affected the National Arena in Bucharest.

Ilie Stan said: "I've seen the condition of the turf, it is pretty good now. There is no postponement."

Heavy snowfall and bad weather made local authorities say the turf was currently covered with a tarpaulin to maintain a certain temperature and humidity at the level of the grass and to ensure its micro climate.

Stan also said Steaua will do everything possible to win.

"You all know Steaua's spirit, we'll try to beat, to attack."

Twente's head coach Steve McClaren will come with 18 players to Bucharest, but Denny Landzaat, Wesley Verhoek and Dwight Tiendalli are missing.

There will be 500 gendarmes to maintain public order, the match being considered a high risk.

The match, 16th in the Europa League, is scheduled for 22.05 local time and it will be broadcast live on ProTV.

The second leg match will take place next week in The Netherlands.
