Upbeat Jose eyes goals
10 Apr 2007 - 08:14:38
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is confident his side can score in the intimidating atmosphere of Valencia's Mestalla Stadium and reach the semi-finals of the Champions League.
The Blues must find the net at least once if they are to have any chance of beating the Spanish side following last week's first leg 1-1 draw against Los Che at Stamford Bridge.
Mourinho is looking forward to the challenge though, saying: "Pressure never killed anyone.
"The problem is to play well. I know Mestalla. I came here with Barcelona and the supporters are not so important because they don't get a goal.
"The relationships outside and the atmosphere (are good) and I want Chelsea to be proud of their own fans and have a beer together.
"Valencia did rest some players (on Saturday) but that is the difference between a team trying to win the Champions League and one trying to win everything.
"We know this is not a points game. It's a game which is decisive and we need a result and that means to score a goal.
"Maybe one goal is enough but we know we have to score.
"Now Chelsea have done very well. We have played past champions and now we have one game against Valencia which was not a good result - to draw at home - but we have the chance to play better and go through."
