The talented Argentinian hit-man has thus far failed to live up to his billing since a £17 million move from Internazionale this season but the player is confident of delivering a big performance in the Principality.
''My goals have been waiting for the great moment - and this semi-final is great moment, for sure,'' said Crespo.
''This match is a big match for everybody at the club. We are very proud to have got this far, but now we must keep on going.
''Maybe this season it has not been so great for me. But every time I play in the UEFA Champions League I am very, very happy because it is a great competition.
''I have a good record of scoring in the tournament.''
Team-mate Juan Sebastian Veron, another player whom the jury is still out on, could be set for a starting berth after recovering from injury and he too reiterated the need for Chelsea to go one step further in Europe's premier competition.
''The most important thing now is the result, nothing else matters,'' declared Veron. ''Losing in the semi-final is not an option.
''It doesn't matter who we are against or where we are playing, this is a game you want to play in.''
