Chelsea got back on track in the league with a 1-0 defeat of West Bromwich Albion Saturday, but it's in the cups where their only real chance of silverware remains this term.
The Blues face Manchester United in the quarterfinal of the FA Cup at Old Trafford on Sunday, and before their trip north, they must negotiate a tough Europa League tie with Steaua Bucharest in Romania just three days earlier on Thursday (Mar. 7).
Indeed, the Romanians defeated Ajax in the Round of 32 to seal their place in the Last 16, so Rafa Benitez and his players will know the Romanians are not to be taken lightly.
Who is Steaua's star man, what threat will they give Chelsea and where will Thursday's game be won and lost? Bleacher Report takes a look at the key battles in this enticing European cup tie.
