Inter Milan striker Samuel Eto'o has welcomed their Champions League draw with Chelsea.

Eto'o is also optimistic ahead of the tie.

"Two months is a long time in football. Chelsea are an important opponent, sure, but in the last 16 and after, in knock out matches, there is not much difference between one opponent and another.

"I repeat two months is a long time. Everything can change from the conditions of individual players to the more general condition of a team," Eto'o said.
