Roberto di Matteo has challenged Chelsea to "make their own destiny" when they face Bayern Munich in the Champions League final tonight.

The Blues' recent history in the tournament is not a happy one. Whether it is Luis Garcia's ghost-goal in 2005, John Terry's penalty-shootout slip three years later or a controversial injury-time defeat to Barcelona in the semi-final 12 months after that, fate has always conspired against Chelsea.

Di Matteo is charged with altering that and, despite needing to combat a Bayern side who have the additional advantage of playing on home ground at the Allianz Arena, he is confident they can. "You make your own destiny and fate," he said.
