Spanish international Joseba Etxeberria grabbed the all-important winning goal for the hosts right on the stroke of half time.
Steaua threw everything into attack in a bid to get back into the game, knowing a win would seal their place in the next round, but they could not find a way past a resolute Bilbao defence.
Bilbao are now level with Steaua on points at the top of the group, but with the advantage of having another game to play while Steaua have played all their games.
Sambegou Bangoura's late goal earned Standard Liege a surprise 1-1 draw with Besiktas in the other game in the group.
Okan Buruk had looked to have given the Turks all three points with the opener on the half hour mark, but Standard earned a point with his equaliser nine minutes from time.
The result leaves both sides with four points and in with a chance of progressing.
