Meanwhile, the pending visits to the terrible twins of Manchester ought to be ample preparation for the ordeal in the Nou Camp in mid March. He did what you're generally taught never to do from a very young age: play the ball across the face of your goal.

This tactical change by the Argentine came off as he drew Barça level after 75 minutes, giving the Catalonian side a vital away goal going into the second leg at the Nou Camp. At Barcelona, Ronaldinho was in the starting line-up for six fixtures against Celtic, winning three, drawing two.

The Italian has had some differences with the Chelsea board in recent months, largely due to the club's transfer policy. Fabregas and Messi are part of Barcelona FC's class of 2002.

"At least we won't be able to think defensively about the second leg because if we think defensively over there, we would be in a lot of danger", Hazard opined. But there's an implication in this. Nine goals in six meetings with Arsenal and six in six with Manchester City, not to mention two Champions League final strikes against Manchester United, would suggest otherwise.
