Chelsea lost at Steaua Bucharest in the Europa League last season but the Blues should get their revenge as they meet again, this time in the Champions League.
Chelsea are under added pressure of course, following the shock reverse at home to Basel in their first fixture in Group E but that was just a blip and they can bounce back at the expense of Steaua, who were hammered 3-0 at Schalke in their opener.
The hosts’ strength at home should ensure that it’s not an absolute stroll for the Blues but Coral’s 21/10 about Chelsea prevailing ‘to nil’ nevertheless appeals while BetVictor make them 9/1 to notch twice without reply and it’s 17/4 at the same firm for Mourinho’s charges to triumph by two.
Samuel Eto’o finally, could be set to get the nod in attack and Skybet quote the striker at 11/2 to break the deadlock.
