Scolari is under some pressure due to Chelsea underachieving in the EPL, but they are perfect so far in the CL, and I look for them to handle Cluj today at Stamford Bridge.

Match starts soon on ESPN2! :cheers:

Cluj is hanging in there for the first 10 mins, 0-0 with one shot on goal for the ROmanian side.

I guess Cluj didn't get the message that they were supposed to step aside and allow Chelsea to take all the point and advance to knockout round.

They are playing pretty well and inventive, Chelsea looks like they are no taking them too seriously.

A Romanian club has not won on English soil in nearly 30 years.

0-0 at the 24 minute mark.

Roma and Bourdeaux are the other match in the group. Roma leads the group with 10 points and Chelsea is in second with 9. Bordeaux has 8 points.

If Bordeaux wins and Chelsea draws, the Blues will be out of the Champions League.

If Roma wins then Chelsea will go through, even if they somehow manage to lose.

Chelsea looks like they are playing it very close to the cloth right now.

Chelsea finally puts one in the back of the net, I think it was Kalou (sp?) who got the goal.

1-0 now, Chelsea fans and players can relax a little, their tickets should be punched.

Chelsea won 2-1, btw. They finished second in group A and will advance to the knockout round.

Roma won the group. :)
