Half-Time Report: Chelsea lead against Steaua Bucuresti

Chelsea are 2-0 up against Steaua Bucuresti at half time in their Champions League clash.

Chelsea have taken a 2-0 lead against Steaua Bucuresti at half time in their Champions League Group E clash.

Jose Mourinho's side could have surged ahead in Romania as early as the fourth minute had Andre Schurrle been better with his shot.

Minutes later the Blues were forced into making a change as Fernando Torres got injured and had to be replaced by Samuel Eto'o.

However, that did not appear to deter Chelsea as they went ahead in the 19th minute thanks to Ramires, who dinked the ball over Steaua goalkeeper Ciprian Tatarusanu after picking up a loose ball.

Juan Mata went close to making it 2-0 to the Premier League outfit on the half-hour mark when he was set up by Oscar, but the Spanish midfielder's shot lacked power and was easily saved by Tatarusanu.

Chelsea did double their lead on the stroke of half time, thanks to an own goal from Daniel Georgievski. Eto'o took a shot on the Steaua goal that Tatarusanu parried straight at the defender and saw the ball fly into the net.
