  • Thoroughly professional job by Chelsea who cruise to a routine victory at a team surely destined to prop up Group E. Schurrle and Ramires the star men for Chelsea, while record scorer Lampard adds another to his collection.

  • Willian finds Azpilicueta on the right, but the final whistle blows before he can get his cross in.

  • Keep-ball for Chelsea now as the clock runs down.

  • Into three minutes of added time.

  • GOAL - LAMPARD! Lovely team goal to round off Chelsea's night. Azpilicueta's perfectly weighted throughball sets Eto'o away down the left. His cross to the back post finds Willian. He takes a touch before teeing up Lampard to sweep the ball home off the inside of the post. Nicely done.

  • Just a couple of minutes remaining now. Injury to Torres apart, a highly satisfactory European night for Chelsea.

  • A heavy touch from Luiz sees Steaua pick up possession, but the defender tracks back to atone for his error.

  • Close! The corner causes confusion in the Chelsea box and pinbals around with two shots blocked before finally the whistle blows for a Chelsea free-kick.

  • Cole gives the ball away to Tanase, who's looked as lively as any in red-and-blue tonight, and his shot from 25 yards has to be turned behind for a corner by Cech.

  • Willian and Schurrle look to combine on the left, but for once Steaua have sufficient bodies there to snuff out the threat.

  • Stanciu gets to the byline on the left and digs out a cross, but it's easily cleared by Luiz.

  • Ramires, on a hat-trick, unselfishly eschews a shooting chance in favour of an attempt to play in Azpilicueta. Doesn't quite get the pass right, and Steaua bring the ball away.

  • Chelsea satisfied that Cech will be fine to see out the game, so Mata makes way for Willian. Tidy display from the playmaker.

  • Nothing comes of the free-kick. Chelsea back in possession deep in their own half.

  • Mourinho keen to make another change - which would be his third and final one - but just waiting to see if Cech is fine to finish the game after that collision with the post earlier.

  • Eto'o wins a free-kick. Chelsea make a change before it's taken, with Oscar making way for Azpilicueta.

  • Lovely passing move from Chelsea ends with Schurrle - still getting most of Bucharest in which to work - cutting back and finding Lampard. His deft cross to the back post is met by Eto'o from a tight angle, but Tatarusanu makes the save and Oscar can't profit from the rebound.

  • Filip fouls Ramires in midfield.

  • Two decent attempts on goal from Stanciu, the first parried by Cech and the second drilled just over the bar.

  • Latovlevici goes for goal from 20 yards, but Ivanovic makes the block.
