Barcelona and Chelsea gunning for quarter final spot

Barcelona and Chelsea gunning for quarter final spot”

However, David Luiz and Ross Barkley are still out injured and will not be able to play in this game. With man to man coverage, the result is a snarling up of play in the midfield areas and an inability for the front three to find space against a back three.

Elsewhere, his team will likely remain unchanged from the side that took on Atletico Madrid two weeks ago, with Paulinho coming in to replace his compatriot.

"In this game, when we have the ball we have to be more clinical".

He has also scored 18 times against Premier League sides in the Champions League, so were he to make a sensational move to England it's hard to imagine him having trouble against the likes of West Bromwich Albion or Stoke City. This time, Courtois narrows the angle and makes a smart block.

Alonso was the standout performer of a tireless Chelsea performance, but their efforts were undermined as they surrendered possession again in the 63rd minute. The midfielder does brilliantly though and times the tackle perfectly.

If there's one lesson that Puyol would like to pass down to this Barcelona team for tonight's fixture would be to never underestimate the Premier League champions.

CHELSEA visit Catalonia with the task of preventing Barcelona from reaching the Champions League quarter-finals for a stunning 11th consecutive season.

The first leg at the Stamford Bridge in London saw Barcelona get a vital away goal through Lionel Messi after Willian had handed Chelsea a lead in the second half. Puyol was captaining Barcelona as they trailed 1-0 in the on aggregate heading into the Camp Nou after Didier Drogba won the first leg for Chelsea.

Antonio Conte doesn't hide it: He expects Chelsea to struggle against Barcelona at the Camp Nou. Lionel Messi scored the first goal of his career against Chelsea in the first meeting, and that scoring strike looms large now.

At the finish, Chelsea coach Antonio Conte left the field with his arm around the forward, perhaps with nothing to add but congratulations.

That year, under Roberto di Matteo, Chelsea went on to win the trophy, beating Bayern Munich on penalties in the final. Our guide reveals all you need to know to watch Barcelona vs Chelsea online, including full live stream details and the kick-off time.

"In the first leg, we played a really good game and it was nearly ideal".

"For me, Messi is the best player in the world and in history".

"We made one mistake and paid a lot for it".

"We know very well the philosophy of Barcelona".

Cristiano Ronaldo of Real Madrid, Messi's old rival and fellow five-time Ballon d'Or victor, is inevitably that player and he sits well clear of the Barcelona man on 117 goals in the Champions League. Not only Chelsea, but every team who plays Barcelona has to suffer. Without the ball, you suffer, you have to suffer to defend well. This was a seriously important game in a finely balanced tie. It is down to the player.
