Di Matteo warns against complacency ahead of Benfica tie

Chelsea interim manager Roberto Di Matteo has urged his side to remain vigilant and not believe the tie with Benfica has been won as the Blues prepare for the second-leg of their Champions League quarter-final with the Portuguese side, Press Association has reported.



A Salomon Kalou goal gave Chelsea a 1-0 victory in the away portion of the contest but Di Matteo has insisted his players understand they are only half way to progression. He said: “We won't switch off. Only 50% has been done and the qualification is over two games… Benfica away from home are a very strong side…so there will be no complacency from our side at all.


Benfica defeated Russian side Zenit St. Petersburg in the prior round, winning the home leg 2-0 after a 3-2 away defeat in Russia. A similar score line at Stamford Bridge would be enough to take Benfica through to the competition’s semi-finals on away goals, where either the champions of Spain and Champions League holders Barcelona or the champions of Italy Milan await. The first leg between Barcelona and Milan, played at the latter’s San Siro stadium, ended goalless.
