Chelsea  sit at the top of Group E with nine points and have the chance to get the final three they need to ensure that they take a favorable place in the last sixteen of the UEFA Champions League .
The Blues host last placed Steaua at Stamford Bridge and a win would send the club through at the top of the group, but an ill-timed loss could see Schalke or FC Basel potentially take top spot.
Jose Mourinho  has done the job of seeing his side qualified for the next round but there is nothing better than the boost of topping your group after a tough last minute loss to Stoke City at the weekend.
Steaua will be looking to steal a few points in hopes of bowing out without a fight.
However, after Chelsea put four past the Romanian side in their earlier meeting in the Eastern European country's capital, the Blues will be picked as the favorites to succeed once again.
Chelsea XI: Cech; Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Cole; Ramires, Lampard; Mata, Willian, Hazard; Eto'o.
Steaua XI: Taratusanu; Prepelita, Gardos, Szukala, Parvulescu; Neagu, Pintilii; Popa, Stanciu, Tanase; Piovaccari.
