"It is about our focus and concentration, and the desire of our players. Of course it is difficult but we know it is not impossible.
"We have to respect Barcelona and know how strong they are, but we are very strong too. If we have the same, or even more desire than we had at Stamford Bridge, everything is possible for us."
The former Benfica man played in a slightly deeper role in the first leg but is happy to play wherever interim Blues boss Robert Di Matteo asks of him.
He added: "I have already played in that position before, for example against Napoli, and when Roberto asked me to do it I was glad to try to help the team, the same as in any position.
"I always try to do what the manager asks, and I am glad I could make a contribution like that. Everybody has the same aim so we have to work so hard for the team.

"Then, you have to keep your eyes open to see the opportunity to go forward and win the game when you can, and that's what I did at Stamford Bridge to set up Didier Drogba's goal.
"Roberto asked us to be disciplined and we followed the plan exactly, but with an open mind you can see the little change in the game, the chance to break forward and score that goal."
