I'm going to keep this one short and to the point. Chelsea have been awful away from home and awesome at home this season. They managed a 4-0 win in Steau in the earlier Group game in one of their only good away performances this season. I fully expect Jose Mourhino's men to bounce back from their loss at Stoke with a big win here. Look for Mata, Hazard to pick holes in the Steau backline and for Torres' pace to cause the visitors real problems. I'm taking Chelsea to win this one by three or more at 7/5. Its a big ask but I think the blues will want to put in a performance in Stamford Bridge in front of their home fans and I expect Frank Lampard and John Terry to be driving forces tonight in ensuring that the Blues are top of the Group and in the last 16 draw on Friday.
