Chelsea vs Barcelona (Champions League) — LIVE UPDATES

Chelsea vs Barcelona (Champions League) — LIVE UPDATES

However after Conte was succeeded by Max Allegri, Juve managed to reach the final of the Champions League with virtually the same group of players who Conte managed.

Out of these 5 teams, Chelsea have one of the toughest matches ahead of them as they face Barcelona at Stamford Bridge.

"We have been analysing this team for a long time; we started one month ago and analysed this team", the Italian said of the runaway LaLiga leaders. Lewandowski was free after a mistake from Besiktas captain Atiba Hutchinson and Vida had few options other than to bring him down.

"It is a fine line for Chelsea". Borussia Dortmund and Atletico Madrid are cases in point. You have to prepare big things, but the smaller details too.

The diminutive Argentine atoned on Tuesday, giving Barcelona a precious away goal as he strode on to a pass from Andres Iniesta in the 75th minute and calmly side-footed the ball home to cancel out Willian's opener for Chelsea 13 minutes earlier. But his focus remains on Chelsea. The English style of football is a unique, physical style, but they play good football as well.

Subsequently, Morata got injured and Chelsea have slipped up.

A rivalry that had been dormant for six years resumed with a gripping game of cat and mouse.

Despite winning the possession battle, 73 percent to 27 percent, Barcelona struggled to get shots off, particularly in the first half.

Chelsea and Barcelona clash in the Champions League has always been an exciting experience.

Should they man-mark Messi?

Will Messi finally score against Chelsea today?

"We have to respect the opponent and when you play against Barcelona you know very well that if you go box-to-box that is crazy".

Conte resembled a manic orchestra conductor throughout the match, going through his full repertoire of gesticulations.

Messi's Chelsea nadir came via their last meeting back in 2012. It won't be easy.

Messi loves to play in the midfield area and the 3-5-2 formation might trouble him.

Conte's men will travel to the Nou Camp for the second leg on March 14.

This formation will also help them to speed up their counter attack.

Their game plan before that moment had been working, with Barcelona dominating posession but achieving little with it. Messi cut a frustrating figure as he was routinely hounded off the ball by blue shirts. For the past couple of seasons, he would find himself linked to La Liga giants Real Madrid.
