UEFA Youth League: Chelsea Hit Four In Romania Against Steaua Bucharest

It was a comprehensive win for Chelsea in matchday two of the UEFA Youth League as they trounced Steaua Bucharest away from home.

The Blues netted four in Romania as John Swift and Alex Kiwomya both netted twice either side of half-time.

Dermot Drummy’s side sit comfortably with two wins out of two after their win against Basel on matchday one.

Schalke, also in Chelsea’s group, won their second game of the competition as they beat Basel in Switzerland. Adis Omerbasic grabbed the first before Florian Pick doubled the lead. Samuele Campo’s penalty hit the crossbar and went in then Tim Bodenroder netted a brace in the last ten minutes.

Celtic narrowly lost to Barcelona in Group H as a Toni Sanabria double was just too much for them. Denny Johnstone grabbed the Scottish side’s equaliser but a deadly set-piece from Sanabria ensured all three points for the Spanish giants.

Dortmund and Marseille played out a seven goal thriller with the German side coming out on top.

Nico Knystock, Manuel Greshake, Cihan Yildiz (2) and Jeremy Dudziak all scored for Dortmund while Fode Guirassy netted twice for the French side.

However, despite a convincing scoreline, it was far from it as Marseille had some very good spells in which they could have came back into the game.

Austria Wien beat Zenit 3-0 away from home in Group G and Porto also beat Athletico Madrid 3-1.
