Chelsea boss Ancelotti wants Champions League clinched quickly
Chelsea need just a point against Spartak Moscow at Stamford Bridge to go through with two games to spare - and can even seal top place in Group F with a victory.
“It’s very important to win,” he said. “Yes we can qualify – but we can also close the group and arrive in first place. And that will allow us to stay more in focus in the Premier League.
“It’s not just about resting players in the final games. Without pressure you can have less problems both mentally and physically too, which is good for the players So it’s very important to get three points.
“I think it will not be easy because in the away game they caused us a lot of problems; and we have to pay attention because they are really involved in the race for second place. But we play at home and we want to win. That’s the aim.”
