Steaua Bucharest coach Laurentiu Reghecampf is relishing the challenge of taking on European Champions Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Steaua pulled off a shock 1-0 win in Romania in the first leg of the Europa League round-of-16 clash, and the 1985/86 European Cup winners are confident they can finish the job in London on Thursday.

“As always, we will be trying to win the game,” Reghecampf said.

“Of course it will be very difficult but I have a team that really likes to play football and to control games.

“We will have to see to what extent we can do this tomorrow, but I always try to win games.

“It is a very important match for everybody, for myself as a coach. But not only that, it’s also important for my team and also Romanian football overall of course.”

Midfielder Mihai Pintilii said the club – which has won five successive matches in all competitions heading into the clash – have every reason to be confident.

“I don’t think the first leg was a big surprise,” he said.

“We played very well to win the game, and tomorrow night it will be similar.

“If they play the way they played in the first leg, and we can play the way we played in the first leg, then we can of course win it. But it really just depends how we will be playing.”
