National Stadium, Romania.

Steaua Bucharest 0-4 Chelsea

GOALS: (Ramires 20' & 55', Georgievski OG 44', Lampard 89')

Chelsea may be seeking to avenge their shock 2-1 home defeat to FC Basel on matchday one but the Europa League holders will be fully aware of the task ahead as they come up against familiar opponents in Bucharest.

The West London club will wary of the threat the Romanian champions pose after losing 1-0 at the same ground earlier this year. 

Raul Rusescu's penalty gave the home side a shock win in the Europa League quarterfinal first leg when the Blues were managed by Rafa Benitez, but with Jose Mourinho at the helm, his side are certainly equipped to achieve a more positive outcome this time around.

Join me for live updates as we bring you all the action from the game in Bucharest. 

Steaua XI: Tatarusanu, Szukala, Gardos, Filip, Latovlevici; Georgievski, Tanase; Stanciu, Bourceanu, Popa; Piovaccari 

Chelsea XI: Cech, Ivanovic, David Luiz, Terry (c), Cole; Lampard, Ramires; Schurrle, Mata, Oscar; Torres
