Mata maintains Euro belief

Spaniard points to group stages record ahead of Napoli visit

Juan Mata insists Chelsea's home form in Europe this season gives them ample reason to be confident of dumping Napoli out of the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday

The Blues trail the Italians 3-1 from the opening leg of their last-16 tie, and enter the game on the back of consecutive wins under interim boss Roberto Di Matteo.Chelsea had a perfect home record in the group stages, netting 10 goals and conceding none, leaving Mata in confident mood ahead of the Stamford Bridge leg.

"In football, nothing is impossible," the 23-year-old said."At Stamford Bridge, this Champions League, we had good results in the group - 3-0, 2-0 and 5-0."All the supporters, for sure, will be cheering us. It's a final for us and I think we can do it. From the first minute, we have to try to create chances to score. -
