Barca game one of my best — Willian

However, a lapse from an otherwise outstanding Chelsea defence was cruelly punished, as Lionel Messi belatedly opened his goals account against the Blues, after years of frustration.

Chelsea twice hit the post with strikes from outside the area from Willian, before the Brazilian scored at the third attempt with another 20-yard effort. I just hope it doesn't affect the players. But Barcelona continued with their game plan which was effectively worked out by the Blues.

That's because Barcelona's priorities have shifted slightly under Valverde for several reasons.

"On one hand you know this team is one of the best in the world maybe they are favourites to win this competition", Conte said.

DF Jordi Alba, 6 - Occasionally managed to get in behind Victor Moses, in a long-running battle down that side of the pitch, to cause trouble. The Catalan giants struggled to create much in front of goal.

"We have to go there to attack and score because 90 minutes defending at the Nou Camp is an eternity, it is a suicide mission".

Hopefully the next time, the misfiring Morata will play up top, flanked by the dynamic duo of Hazard and Willian.

In a roundabout way, Ivan Rakitic agreed. We gave 120% in this game, so we must be disappointed with the result. "We are talking about 1-1 and maybe we deserved more". So here we go again.

Who will progress from Chelsea-Barcelona to the quarter-finals? Against Chelsea, for example, Barca had over 70 percent of the possession, while Sergio Busquets completed 128 of 139 passes - a Champions League record for the current campaign.

"They should have beaten all those teams".

Conte won three Serie A titles with Juventus and lifted the Premier League trophy in his first season in England, but European success has proved elusive. The four-man midfield moved in a rhythm where the man in possession was targeted and the other flank was left open.

His last goal dates back to March 2017 against PSG.

"We are stronger at home".

"He's a one-off and it was just great to be in the same stadium as him".

Messi's goal was his first ever goal against Chelsea in nine games, sending his fans into a wild frenzy on Twitter.

Would these two be better or worse as siamese twins?

"I think that, for sure, we have to play a perfect game against Barcelona if we want to win", Conte said ahead of the game. We can still dream.
