Branislav Ivanovic has said that Chelsea are focused on beating Steaua Bucuresti to finish top of their Champions League group tomorrow evening.

Jose Mourinho's side, who are already through to the knockout stages of the tournament, head into the game one-point clear of second-placed Basel.

The defender told the team's website: "It's a very important game, especially because we've had some defeats in the competition, and we want to finish top of the group.

"We know how important this game is for us in order to finish top of the group, that's our aim and we need to stay focused, give 100% and hopefully we will win the game.

"They are a good team, in the last year we've played them three times and they have some great players, so we have to be careful. They play really offensive, their full-backs attack and they are very positive."

When the sides met earlier in the competition, Chelsea secured a 4-0 win.
