Steaua Bucuresti Vs Chelsea Highlights:The reign of Rafael Benitez in Chelsea continues being a roller-coaster ride for their players and the fans in its entirety.
After some positive results in the Premier League they make disappointing performances in their next match which has led to the pressure being piled up for the Spanish tactician who already stated he will be leaving his role by the end of this season.
Chelsea travelled to the Arena Nationala hoping to promote confidence and energy in their squad who have been suffering and going through a downhill moment. Steaua Bucuresti defeated the Premier League team 1-0 as they played the 1rst leg of the Europa League.
The visitors never really could find their form in this match other than a few shots here and there being launched in by their players but other than that it was Steaua who enjoyed the better part of the encounter.
Things turned ugly for Chelsea when Bertrand tackled down Rucescu as he gave away a penalty for Rucusecu himself to step up and take the set-piece as he blasted it past the fingers of Petr Cech.
Juan Mata was brought into the battle fray in the 2nd half hoping to spark some life in the game but Chelsea still could not find the equalizer and now are obligated to score 1 goal in their 2nd leg if they want to advance any further in this Europa League.
