Petr Cech is wary of talking up Chelsea's chances of advancing through to the final of the Champions League.

Petr Cech has refused to discuss the possibility of Chelsea reaching next month's Champions League final.

The Blues head into tomorrow's semi-final clash in Barcelona with a 1-0 lead that they gained during the opening leg at Stamford Bridge.

However, goalkeeper Cech has admitted that past failures in the competition have left him wary of talking up his side's chances of winning the tournament.

"I've been hoping for eight years I would have a chance to win the Champions League," he told reporters. "We're in the semi-finals again and I hope this will be the year.

"Many times we've gone close but not managed to do it. If we have a fantastic game tomorrow we have a chance to play the final, but first we need to play 90 minutes or more tomorrow.

"Let's see how the game goes, but it's too early to talk about the final."

Chelsea last reached the final in 2008 when they lost on penalties to Manchester United in Moscow.
