After eight managers, an outlay of £700million in transfer fees and an estimated £2billion overall, Chelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo has promised Roman Abramovich his Champions League odyssey will eventually reach its glorious destination.

For the second time in Abramovich's nine years as owner, Chelsea will contest the most important club game on the planet on Saturday. The lure of the Champions League is what brought the Russian billionaire to Stamford Bridge, his hunger to win it has arguably cost half a dozen managers their jobs.

Di Matteo is confident that Abramovich's dreams will be realised in the final showdown with Bayern Munich. He said: "We can win it. We have to believe and have the confidence to do so. I don't know how somebody else feels. I can only guess he (Abramovich) is excited. Sooner or later it will come."
