Chelsea manager Robeto Di Matteo has called for his club to believe in themselves as the Italian thinks his Blues can pull off a victory in Munich according to ESPNsoccernet:

We can win it. We have to believe and have the confidence to do so.

I don't know how somebody else feels...Sooner or later it will come. We hope it's tomorrow. But with the quality that's been at this club before and will certainly come into this club again, it will happen.

In contrast of Di Matteo trying to inspire confidence for his club, Bayern Munich manager, Jupp Heynckes is playing down expectations for his fans after a difficult cup final last week saw his side beaten by Borussia Dortmund:

In the Champions League final there is no favorite team. Certainly not against Chelsea, because in Chelsea you have players with many international caps, players with experience who have won everything - and it is also their dream to win this cup.

So I think it would be very wise to be humble and modest, and simply try tomorrow to deploy our Champions League experience and say, 'Okay, we've played fantastic matches, great home matches'.

However, no one will be fooled into thinking this game will be anything but up for grabs as Chelsea have proven they can win against the toughest of opposition, while Bayern have shown that they are not always capable of preventing a comeback.
