Roberto Carlos is hoping Fenerbahce finish the job against Chelsea on Tuesday and knock The Blues out of the UEFA Champions League.

The Turkish giants take a 2-1 advantage to Stamford Bridge after coming from behind in Istanbul to stun Avram Grant's side in the first leg of their quarter-final clash.

Former Real Madrid ace Roberto Carlos, who has an outside chance of featuring in the game, believes Chelsea have struggled of late at home.

The Brazilian full-back says Grant's charges limped past Middlesbrough in their last home game and that Fenerbahce will progress if they manage to sneak an away goal.

Difficulties

"Chelsea have problems at home," he told The Sun. "I watched them against Middlesbrough and they had tremendous difficulties to win.

"If we play well we will have chances and if we score one goal we will go through for sure.

"I spoke to everyone before the last game and said we should not be afraid of Chelsea's big names so that we could play our best football.

"We put them under pressure and got a massive victory which gives us huge confidence for the second leg."
