Chelsea manager Roberto Di Matteo believes Wednesday night's Champions League success will go down as a significant moment in the club's history.

The west Londoners overcame the odds at Stamford Bridge to progress to the quarter-finals, overcoming a 3-1 first-leg defeat in Napoli to go through 5-4 on aggregate after extra-time.

"For the club, you know, it meant a lot," said interim boss Di Matteo, who ran on to the pitch to embrace the Chelsea players on the final whistle.
