An early Demba Ba goal was enough for Chelsea FC to finish as group winners for the eighth time in the last 11 campaigns and condemn FC Steaua Bucureşti to the unwanted statistic of the side with the longest UEFA Champions League run without a victory – 23 games.

Chelsea lost twice in Group E to the team who finished third – FC Basel 1893 – but triumphed in all four of their other fixtures, scoring 11 times without reply. In the game's decisive moment, Ba pounced at the far post after Oscar had headed on Willian's near-post corner.
