Coach Roberto di Matteo is confident of upsetting the form book once again.
But the interim manager also admits Chelsea need to be “perfect” over both legs if they are to reach the final and avenge their semi-final defeat of three years ago.
“They don’t like to play against us,” he said. “The results in the past show that. The way we play is maybe a bit more difficult for them to play against.
“We’ve shown on many occasions that we’re a team who can give them a lot of problems.”
