Chelsea midfielder Ramires believes that his team will be confident going into the second leg of the Champions League semi-final against Atletico Madrid at Stamford Bridge.

The tie is well-balanced, with the first leg having ended in a 0-0 draw and the 27-year-old reveals that his team will go into the match thinking about a win and nothing else.

Playing at home in front of the fans will also be an incentive, Ramires adds.

"We are going into the game confident and it's good that we're playing at home, in front of our fans", the Brazilian told his club's official site.


"It's a big game and we need to play well to make sure we win the match and get through to the final."

The former Benfica player feels that the goalless draw in the first leg is a blessing in disguise for his team, as they now have to play only to win.

"If you go out on to the pitch thinking a draw is enough it can be very dangerous, so it might be a good thing that we need to win the game.

"As we have seen this season already, anything is possible so let's just see what happens", Ramires added.
