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

  2. 90+4

    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.

  3. 90+2

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

  4. Rusescu goes off, to be replaced by Gardos. His job is done.

  5. 90

    Four added minutes...

  6. 88

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

  7. 87

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

  8. 84

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

  9. 82

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

  10. 81

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

  11. 80

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

  12. 78

    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.

  13. 75

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

  14. 74

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

  15. 73

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

  16. 70

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

  17. 68

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

  18. 67

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

  19. 65

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