I think you're right. Di Matteo has been great at creating a gameplan and drumming it into the players. Benfica away we knew what they were going to do before even they did it seemed. He got it just right against Barcelona both games so fingers crossed he can come up with something to give us a chance against Bayern Munich.
They're the better team, playing at home and we're missing very important players. Any advantage he can get us by preparing the players to know what to expect and how to handle it could be vital.
