Roberto Di Matteo insisted he would not sleep soundly despite watching Chelsea put one foot in the Champions League semi-finals with a 1-0 victory at Benfica.

Di Matteo masterminded a second straight win in Europe, this one achieved despite the Italian resting six of his increasingly-tired players. After the 1-0 success against what was a toothless Benfica side, the Chelsea caretaker manager claimed his side still had a mountain to climb.

He said: "I think we've put ourselves in a good position, but it's not a result you can rely upon for the home game. It's one goal."
