Otelul Galati won their domestic Romanian League for the first time in their history last season and in the process put themselves into the Group stages for the 2011/12 Champions League. It is a remarkable achievement for the Romanian side as they have never reached the top table of European football before, although they have performed admirably in the Europa League in the past.

Otelul Galati are managed by former Romanian international Dorinel Munteanu, who guided his team to the domestic league and cup double last season. Their recent success has been built on a strong Romanian basis, with several players having appeared for the national team.
There are also a few foreign players in their squad, including new signing Daniel Chavez, who is expected to pride flair and goals, as well as Argentinean goalscoring midfielder Gabriel Viglianti.
