The 3 Key Battles — Chelsea vs Barcelona

The 3 Key Battles — Chelsea vs Barcelona

An out of sorts Chelsea welcome Barcelona to Stamford Bridge on Tuesday evening for their Champions League last-16 tie.

So the focus goes on to staying in the top four and going as far as you can in the Champions League.

Willian provided Chelsea with the better scoring opportunities and struck both posts in a span of eight minutes. "With Eden Hazard, Alvaro Morata, Pedro and Willian they have such quality up front".

Barca captain Andres Iniesta subsequently set up Lionel Messi to beat the otherwise untested Thibaut Courtois to earn the Catalans a crucial away goal to take into the second leg on March 14. "I don't think much about the future because you never know what happens in the future".

Here, we look at why the all-conquering Argentinian has come unstuck against the west London side. We have to pay great attention, but not only to Messi.

"It's a special game for me".

This lineup will go down in history as either the moment Antonio Conte's brilliance was inescapably on display, or the night he completely lost the plot.

Currently in the middle of a tumultuous season, Chelsea and their manager Antonio Conte have been dealing with rumors about his future at the club.

And Lampard believes that late goal means the balance of the tie has now swung.

"I said very clearly, I have a contract to 2019".

That kicked off a series of often epic encounters between the teams in the following six years.

But Barca seized upon Christensen's poor pass across his own box, with Andres Iniesta skipping away from Cesar Azpilicueta's diving tackle and then pulling back for Messi to finish expertly into the bottom corner.

Chelsea have the upper hand against Barca with four victories in 12 matches compared to the Spaniards' three wins. The changes weren't enough to get the hosts back in the game, though.

"We were very close to the perfect game", said Conte. They won't hide, they like to play attacking football - if you let them.

Compact? Where have we heard that word before?

"We have a lot of faith in him". However, what will entrance the world for the next few days is the brilliance of Willian's performance and the way that Messi found a response.

Chelsea team news! No clear striker on the pitch, so it's former Barca man Pedro playing as the false 9.

"This is a different opponent". I think we paid dearly for one mistake. "In the big matches he makes his mark".

Chelsea broke, predominatnly through the tireless Willian, whenever opportunity presented itself.
