Schalke striker Kevin Kuranyi believes tonight's opponents Chelsea are capable of winning the Champions League this season.

He said: "You read reports that there is some unrest at Chelsea but their greatest strength has been an intense competitiveness.

"I can't believe this spirit will go because Mourinho has gone.

"Any group of players who are written off become doubly motivated to prove their critics wrong.

"The spirit Mourinho instilled in this team will still be in place and this is why they're a big contender to win the Champions League."
