  • Full report and reaction to follow. Thanks for all your thoughts. Goodbye.

  • Steaua Bucharest 1 Chelsea 0. Famous night for the Romanians, but Chelsea will have to play much better in the second leg if they are to progress.

    90+4
  • Popa tries his luck from distance, but ball flies just wide. Wastes more time for the Romanians.

    90+2
  • Rusescu goes off, to be replaced by Gardos. His job is done.

  • Four added minutes...

    90
  • Lampard has his first effort of the game, but fires well wide from distance. One of his poorest showings of the season.

    88
  • Really nice move from Steaua, passing the ball around well, but the final cross is overhit by Popa, rolling straight to Cech.

    87
  • David Luiz fires a free-kick from distance. Gets incredible power on it, but it flies just over. Impressive from that range.

    84
  • Marin does well to create space for a shot, cutting inside and firing the ball nearpost, but it is palmed away by Tatarusanu.

    82
  • The impressive Tanase goes off, to be replaced by Leandro Tatu.

    81
  • Mata tries to thread the ball through, but it is easily cut out. Story of the night for Chelsea.

    80
  • Chorus of whistles around the ground as Chelsea pass the ball around. In fat, it could be the Blues' fans as their side severely lack in creativity.

    78
  • Marko Marin comes on for Chelsea, in place of Hazard, who struggled all evening.

    75
  • Hazard finds space at the back post, running onto a Torres flick, but he can only fire over from the tight angle.

    74
  • Rusescu runs at David Luiz, but the Chelsea defender does well to step across and shield the ball out.

    73
  • Torres again surrenders the ball too easily. Looks like he wants to be elsewhere. Very poor from the talented Spaniard.

    70
  • Very poor from Chelsea. Just giving the ball away far too often. They are capable of much better than this.

    68
  • Cech has to rush from his goal to cut out long ball over the top. Chipciu adjudged to be offisde however.

    67
  • Mikel goes into the book for a late challenge. A little clumsy if anything.
