Chelsea vs Barcelona Line up and team news
Chelsea must overcome Barcelona in the Spanish giants’ own back yard if they are to reach the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
Antonio Conte’s Premier League champions were heavy outsiders after being drawn against Barca in the last-16, but Willian’s goal looked to have handed Chelsea an unlikely one-goal advantage to take to the Camp Nou.
Unfortunately for Chelsea, Lionel Messi finally broke his scoring duck against the Blues to net a vital away goal and swing the tie in Barca’s favour.
Chelsea are still very much in with a chance of reaching the last eight, but must score at least once against Ernesto Valverde’s La Liga leaders to stand any chance of progressing tonight.
