Steaua - ChelseaThis is a must win match for Chelsea. It's still early for conclusions, but with Premiership so interesting this year, it's crucial for Chelsea to finish job early in CL group. They started with home defeat against Basel 1-2. Now they meet very inexperienced squad in Bucharest. Only two Steaua players played in CL prior to this season. On the other hand, Chelsea squad is full of experienced squads and I am sure that they will bounce back immidiately after loss to Basel in first round.
Steaua is undefeated in Romania with 6 wins out of 7 matches. They scored 19 goals which averages almost 3 per match! Chelsea has only 11 pts in 6 matches. They are still trying to understand what Mourinho wants from them, season is long, so in Premiership they have time to fix things, in CL they ust start fixing it in this match.
Steaua coach has full squad at his disposal. He rested all his first team players in Cup match last Thursday. Mourinho can't count on Van Ginkel, who suffered very bad injury and will be unavailable 'till march. Ramires is back after serving a one match ban for red card in Uefa Super Cup final against Bayern M.
With full squad at his disposal, Mourinho must find a way to win this match or they could find themselves in real trouble. With armoury he has, I am sure that Mourinho and the Blues will be the winners of this match.
Steaua without: Pintili; Tanase; Stefan Nikolic; Alexandru Chipciu.
Chelsea without: Marco van Ginkel; Eden Hazard; Kevin de Bruyne; Michael Essien.
