Unirea vs. Rangers - Livescore and Report

Today, Unirea are playing against the Scottish club, Glasgow Rangers FC. They already won 4-1 in Scotland, now they are playing in Bucharest. Any predictions?

My prediction: 3-0 to Unirea.

Final score: Unirea 1-1 Rangers.

Goals: Unirea Urziceni - M.Onofras (88'); Glasgow Rangers - L.McCulloch (78').

I really believe Unirea should have won this match. I can't believe they only drew in Romania... They had many shots that should have been in the back of the net (a few cross bars, one was from an incredible angle, from the edge of the field near the flag and he hit the cross bar).
