Steaua Bucharest brought back a point from their trip to Ceahlaul while Real Madrid went down at home to Celta Vigo. Dynamo Kiev host Shakhtar Donetsk on Monday evening...

[IMG41156#L]Steaua Bucharest could only marginally profit from a first defeat of the season to league leaders Dinamo Bucharest, beaten 2-1 away to CFR Cluj. In drawing away to Ceahlaul 0-0, Cosmin Olaroiou's players pulled one point back in the standings but still trail leaders Dinamo by 11.
After Week 14, Steaua are still second, two points ahead of Rapid Bucharest and CFR Cluj.

[IMG41155#L]After their 1-0 home win over Steaua Bucharest on Wednesday, Real Madrid were looking for more success at home to Celta Vigo. But it wasn't to be. Fabio Capello's side went down 2-1.
Despite the introduction of Reyes and Van Nistelrooy at the break, the hosts were unable to breakdown Celta Vigo who eventually went ahead through Jorge, ten minutes from time. At kick-off, all eyes were on Ronaldo, starting for the first time this season after his left ankle operation over the summer. Yet despite two good efforts, the Brazilian was unable to mark his return with a goal and was replaced in the 65th minute by David Beckham.
Real are now third, two points behind surprising leaders Sevilla, led by former Lyon striker Frédéric Kanouté, who tops the scoring charts with eight goals from nine games.
Real Madrid: Casillas, Roberto Carlos, Cannavaro, Helguera, Sergio Ramos, Emerson, Guti, Diarra (Van Nistelrooy 46'), Raul, Ronaldo (Beckham 65'), Robinho (Reyes 46').

Currently topping the standings Anatoli Demianenko's side can take a six-point lead over the rivals with a win.
