Chelsea vs. Barcelona - Bookmaker's view

Chelsea vs. Barcelona - Bookmaker's view

"He's not talking to me now".

Chelsea and Barcelona have met 12 times in the Champions League, with Chelsea winning 4 times and drawing 5. Cristiano Ronaldo not the greatest. They have the same qualities they had last year.

"For sure, we have to be ready to stop him, we know he's really fast and goes one against one".

The floodgates opened after the break at Munich's Allianz Arena as Kingsley Coman struck before Mueller poached his second.

The Italian tactician spoke to Mediaset Premium after tonight's 1-1 Champions League draw with Barcelona at Stamford Bridge.

Here are five reasons why. Many will disagree but I think Gomez has loads of potential and whilst he has misjudged the ball on occasion he plays aggressively, is quick and is rarely beaten for pace.

The return of Alvaro Morata and the always sensational Eden Hazard look to give Chelsea's attack some life against the Spanish side.

Chelsea's optimism is also reported, with the Blues being quoted as saying that the Blaugrana "are not invincible".

"Any moment is bad to play Chelsea".

Marcos Santos, who covers Barca for El Periodico, agrees: "Valverde's teams are much stronger".

The games were so fast, Iniesta, Busquets and Rakitic were run ragged.

The Spaniard's passing ability could be crucial to Chelsea getting one over on their Catalan counterparts. "They pass, pass, pass in the first half and in the second half the other team is tired". If De Bruyne had been on earlier I suspect the result would have been different.

A short corner was worked into the Brazilian's path and he arrowed a low shot past the rooted Ter Stegen.

Messi's Chelsea nadir came via their last meeting back in 2012.

Neymar isn't on the pitch.

"For me, he is [world class]", the Croatian told a news conference. Luis Suarez and Jordi Alba scored a goal each.

"So, every season I try to do my best".

"I have regained confidence".

That is an indication that Barcelona are worried about the mileage on key players' clocks.

"The coach was very clear from the beginning about what he wanted", Messi said.

The Catalans are the overwhelming favourites, as per usual. However, his poor record against Chelsea and Courtois definitely adds another interesting subplot to what promises to be a cracking Champions League encounter.

"We have an idea".

Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has conceded that his relationship with Antonio Conte last season was complicated, but insisted that it has improved over time.

Barcelona, who were stifled for long periods by the Blues, were gifted an away goal with just under 15 minutes remaining after Andreas Christensen gave the ball away on the edge of his own penalty area.
