Chelsea defender David Luiz says Roberto Di Matteo’s squad have their sights set on winning the UEFA Champions League.

Luiz details Chelsea obsession

The west London club hold a 1-0 advantage over Benfica after the first leg of their quarter-final in Europe’s elite club competition.

And they can book a semi-final against Barcelona or AC Milan with a positive result in the second leg at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday.

“Now we will give everything to beat them (Benfica) again at home. At Chelsea we want to win the Champions League,” Luiz told The Sunday Mirror.

“It is an obsession for me and every top player in the world to do that.”

Luiz, who joined Chelsea from Benfica in January 2011, feels he has now settled in England and expressed his delight at playing in the Premier League.

“I feel I have adapted well and Chelsea have helped me a lot,” he said.

“I like the Premier League and I feel it is magical, because it always comes down to the last minute to see who will finish first.”

Luiz’s Portuguese team-mate Paulo Ferreira has highlighted the threat Benfica pose, and wants to avoid complacency prior to the return fixture.

“We know they are capable of scoring away from home. So we need to be careful because they will not think it is over yet,” he said.

“We have the upper hand but they only need one goal and we are all equal. We have an inner strength here at Chelsea and of course I still believe in the team.

“We have wonderful players and we have to keep believing.”
