Champions League: Chelsea faces tough test in Camp Nou (LIVE UPDATES)


Chelsea faces tough home test against Barcelona as both teams seek to qualify for the last eight of the Champions League.

Barcelona with an advantage from Messi’s equaliser at Stamford Bridge indicates that the visitors are likely to face a tough test. The pressure will be more on Chelsea’s coach, Antonio Conte, to be more offensive in the front than defensive at the back.

Lionel Messi, who cancelled out Willian’s openers with his equaliser at Stamford Bridge, will be seeking to do more damage to the Chelsea team on home ground.

For Chelsea’s manager, Antonio Conte, “every coach, it is not simple to sleep a lot, especially before these types of games.”

He said he looks forward to the encounter with excitement and hopes the players too are on the same page too; as Chelsea will hope to take inspiration from their 2-2 semi-final draw at the Nou Camp in 2012, giving them a 3-2 victory on aggregate.

The Chelsea boss added that his team will need to concentrate, to stay with their head on the pitch in every moment and to know that there are moments they have to suffer. Not only Chelsea, but every team who plays Barcelona has to suffer.

Will Camp Nou be Blue tonight or would Barca?
