Rafael Benitez insists he does not need another "miracle" to rescue Chelsea from Champions League humiliation.

Benitez famously masterminded what was dubbed 'The Miracle of Istanbul' seven-and-a-half years ago when Liverpool produced one of the greatest comebacks in European Cup final history to beat AC Milan.

But he has declared that Chelsea do not require divine intervention to avoid becoming the first Champions League holders to crash out of the competition before Christmas. Interim manager Benitez acknowledged Chelsea might need "a bit of luck" on Wednesday night but said: "I don't think it's a miracle."
