The Romanian champions have enjoyed a strong start to the season and are unbeaten in the Liga 1.
Chelsea have had a turbulent start to the season and the Champions League so far – the Blues have won just two of their last five Premier League games and lost their opening Champions League group fixture 2-1 to Basel at Stamford Bridge.
Jose Mourinho has set his target of 10 points from the remaining five group stage fixtures in Group E and tonight the Blues will be hunting for their first three points on the board against a Steaua Bucharest side that lost 3-0 to Schalke in their own disappointing opener.
