Chelsea overcame Romanian strugglers Steaua Bucharest 1-0 in the final Champions League game to guarantee their place as group winners in the last-16 knockout stage.

An early goal from Demba Ba set the tone for the rest of the game, as a much-changed Blues side kept their fourth clean sheet of the Champions League campaign.

The game lacked intensity and a real premium of clear-cut chances, but Jose Mourinho won't mind, as he avoids the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona in the next round.

Steaua go crashing out of the group stage without a win, and it will be a case of "better luck next year" for Laurentiu Reghecampf's men.

Here are some points of the game that we can take a look at after Chelsea sealed their progress at Stamford Bridge.
