With the 2012 semi-final defeat still fresh in their memory, Barcelona travel to Stamford Bridge for their round of 16 Champions League clash against Chelsea with the hope that they can eradicate the late heartache imposed by then striker Fernando Torres six years ago. We have to pay great attention, but not only to Messi. "But I'm completely different", he said. We want to continue making history and playing well. But if we can past this first phase and not put ourselves under too much pressure then I think that we can hurt them.

After having the flawless first season in the Premier league, where he led the London side to the league title, Conte has not had as much enjoyment in 2017/18.

"We've got some new players who have made us even stronger and hopefully they feel good and comfortable in the team and they adapt very fast". When I was younger, I was dreaming about playing in a game like this.

Quoted by the Guardian, Hazard said: "If you want to be one of the best, you have to play well in the big games". Every game I try to play my best football.

"It's always interesting to play against a team that has numerous best players in the world". With their strength and organization, they are going to give us a complicated game.

Chelsea came second in Group C behind Roma on the head-to-head rule, while Barca finished ahead of Juventus in Group D. According to ESPN, Chelsea fans have been concerned about the team's "lack of fight". "The English teams have a powerful league; it's normal they are there at the top", he added.

BARCELONA coach Ernesto Valverde is hopeful Andres Iniesta will stay at Barcelona following reports his captain has offers on the table to move to China at the end of the season. "It's different playing Chelsea due to their formation, but Girona play with a similar system in La Liga so we've played against it before".

"To play against Messi is always good".

"He is one of the best managers in the world with a great record", the former Athletic Bilbao boss said.

Of course, Lionel Messi is the brightest of a star-studded Barca lineup and leads the team with 29 goals in all competitions, 20 in La Liga and three in this year's UCL competition.

"He has the classic Italian methods, very strong defence who can counter at any moment".
