Steaua Bucureşti vs Chelsea FC Free Betting Tip & Preview

Romanian champions have lost just five of last 20 European home games. Rafa Benitez\’s side travel east after winning only four of their last 12 ties on the road in Europe and with a trip to Old Trafford soon after, key players may be rested.

Tip: Steaua Bucureşti 1 – 2 Chelsea FC

Chelsea\’s trip to Bucharest comes just prior to their FA Cup quarter-final against Manchester United at Old Trafford, meaning Rafa Benitez may be inclined to rest key players.

Only Yossi Benayoun (ankle) and Oriol Romeu (knee) are expected to miss out through injury, but John Terry (knee) may not be risked following a fairly stuttering return from a spell on the sidelines.

Benitez\’s rotation of his strikers suggests Fernando Torres will come back into the team after Demba Ba\’s goal-scoring appearance against West Brom at the weekend, while Ashley Cole may be rested, allowing for Ryan Bertrand to come back into the side.

Romanian champions Steaua come into the tie with almost a full squad to choose from as Laurentiu Reghecampf looks to continue his side\’s impressive run in the competition.

Daniel Georgievski (fibula) remains out for the hosts but, aside from the Georgian defender, Steaua can call upon a full-strength side.

Brazilian forward Adi Rocha could come back into the side in place of Stefan Nikolic, while Cristian Tanase should retain his role in the starting line-up despite receiving a red card during the win over Gaz Metan at the weekend.

Probable lineups

Steaua Bucharest: C. Tătăruşanu, F. Gardoş, V. Chiricheş, C. Râpă, I. Latovlevici, A. Prepelita, A. Chipciu, C. Tănase, Adrian Popa I, Adi, R. Rusescu

Chelsea: P. Čech, Azpilicueta, B. Ivanović, David Luiz, R. Bertrand, F. Lampard, Ramires, V. Moses, Oscar, Mata, Fernando Torres

Prediction: At home, the Romanian side will be a worthy opponent for Rafa Benitez\’s faltering side and the crowd will certainly makes themselves known. However, a narrow Chelsea win would be the most likely bet, due to the wealth of superior attacking talent at the Spaniard\’s disposal.

Tip: Steaua Bucureşti 1 – 2 Chelsea FC
