Chelsea vs Steaua Preview:

Date: March 14, 2013; Time: 8:05 PM GMT;

Venue: Stamford Bridge — London.

Blues will try to win to progress to the quarter-final stage. Last year’s Champions League winners must overtake a 1-0 away deficit, while Steaua will be fighting for positive result far away from home.

Steaua made a 1-0 lead thanks to a first half penalty from Romanian top-scorer Raul Rusescu in the first leg. The first game was a very hard match with almost equal shots. A 1-0 win doesn’t give Steaua much of advantage, but they need to score in London to get much confidence and make Chelsea to score 3 goals.

Chelsea stands 4th in the EPL table with 52 points from 28 games. Their last five games have seen 2 losses, 2 wins and 1 draw. Last five home matches the Blues have finished with 4 wins and 1 draw. They had a very hard FA Cup game against Manchester United at the weekend. After losing 2-0 they fought back excellent 2-2 draw and had great chances to win that game. So they are full of confidence and motivationto beat Steaua at home. Frank Lampard has made the most Chelsea appearances, having played over 100 games in Europe.

Steaua are at the top of Liga 1 table with 56 points from 22 games. Their present form has seen 5 straight wins from last five games. Last five far away from home matches the Romanian side have finished with 1 draw, 1 defeat and 3 wins, including friedlies. Steaua had an excellent 3-4 win over Ceahlaul in the Romanian League this weekend. Steaua topped their Europa League group this season, and are 12 points ahead of 2nd-placed Astra in their domestic league. Steaua have overturned a 2-0 first-leg deficit in the battle with Ajax in previous round and won on penalties.


Fernando Torres will lead the line for Chelsea, cause Demba Ba is cup-tied for Newcastle. John Terry should return at the centre of defence. John Obi Mikel and Eden Hazard are likely to start from the first minutes.

Steaua head coach Laurentiu Reghecampf could use the same starting line-up that won Chelsea in the first game. Also, Daniel Georgievski can recover in time. Forward Stefan Nikolic could also return from a knee injury.
