Chelsea FC turned back the clock to reprise their come-from-behind heroics from last season's UEFA Champions League and finally extinguish the redoubtable challenge of FC Steaua Bucureşti.

When the Romanian side rubbed out Chelsea's opening goal – the Blues' 300th in European competition – on the stroke of half-time, it left the hosts needing to score twice more to earn a place in the UEFA Europa League quarter-finals. John Terry and Fernando Torres struck to see them through and maintain their dream of back-to-back European trophies.
