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.
Rusescu goes off, to be replaced by Gardos. His job is done.
The impressive Tanase goes off, to be replaced by Leandro Tatu.
Toby Day tries to rally his troops. 'Hi, COME ON CHELSEA!!! They should try and at least get 1 goal! I want CHELSEA to win 2-1!!!'
Marko Marin comes on for Chelsea, in place of Hazard, who struggled all evening.
Mikel goes into the book for a late challenge. A little clumsy if anything.
Juan Mata comes on in place of the very ineffective Benayoun. Needs to inject abit of quality into the game.
Sean Hawdon also far from happy: 'Chelsea are having the worst game I've seen them play for a long time.'
Matt Calory has been touch via email: 'Aside from Paul Scholes, Frank Lampard has been the best midfielder in Prem history. Not showing it tonight. Looks a little fat!'
Prepelita comes on for Steaua, with Pintili making way.
Pintili receives yellow card for leaving his foot in on John Terry.
Kenny isn't confident on the email: 'Chelsea clueless under Rafa & will go down 2 nil.'
Hiruy has been in touch via Twitter: 'Chelsea has been atrocious so far, we need a spark ASAP! Lets go Blues.'
Steaua Bucharest 1 Chelsea 0. Chelsea much better after going behind. Benitez will feel penalty was harsh, but Steaua arguably deserve their lead.
GOAL!!! Steaua Bucharest 1 Chelsea 0. Rusescu Penalty. Cech almost gets to it, but Rusescu put sufficient power on his spot-kick to beat him.
Rusescu looks odds-on to get a head to the ball eight yards out, but Bertrand impedes him. Penalty.
PENALTY TO STEAUA!!!
Steaua Bucharest have conceded just four goals in 11 home games this season, and Sky Bet have boosted their price to win 1-0 to 8/1. Cristian Tanase to score first is a 14/1 shot, while Yossi Benayoun to score first in a 2-0 Chelsea win is a tempting 75/1.
