It was another poor night for Chelsea under interim manager Rafa Benitez at the Arena Națională in Bucharest, as they went down to a 1-0 defeat to Steaua.
Fernando Torres once again had a woeful game and struggled to make much happen in front of goal.
When El Nino (do people still call him that?) was put through late on in the game, he managed to clear the ball away in yet another personal nadir.
If statistics were needed to sum up how bad Torres has been for Chelsea in 2013, the fact he has one goal this calendar year, against Brentford, sums it up.
Whether Benitez could have saved Torres is doubtful, but this looks like another black mark on his time as Chelsea boss.
