Barcelona away goal not definitive for progression — Valverde

Barcelona away goal not definitive for progression — Valverde

"I remember a lot of things, when you control of the game and score the first goal, then Leo [Messi] missed a penalty and then Fernando [Torres] scored with the game's last touch to finish the tie". This is a big game and we are Chelsea.

This was quickly followed up by a acrobatic volley from Hazard, who sent the ball inches over the crossbar. Liverpool, Benfica and Xerez have thwarted Messi twice, while Inter Milan (three games) and Rubin Kazan (four games) also boast impressive defensive records against the often irresistible force.

Here's hoping it's the latter. For all Gary Cahill has done for the club, the captain has not impressed of late. Chelsea were always horrible opponents: compact, strong in defence, pressing very well. "But I'm completely different". To a much greater degree than ever before, the attacks come through him.

Antonio Conte decided to bring on Alvaro Morata for Pedro with eight minutes left on the clock.

4- Andres Iniesta, will play both as number 10 behind Messi and Suarez but will also drift to the left-wing.

He was inches away from another long-range stunner when he curled onto the post from 25 yards with Marc-Andre ter Stegen beaten in the Barca goal.

"The red card definitely played into our hands", Mueller said after the biggest home first-leg win in the knockout stages of the Champions League.

The Chelsea vs Barcelona, Champions League match can be seen live on Sony Ten 2 and Sony Ten 2 HD. I've played a few good games this season: Atletico Madrid away, Roma here, and against Madrid.

Equally, Chelsea had players of their own who looked determined to show they could still flourish in such exalted company. "We must be excited to play this type of game". I think the players are not stupid. "We are going to face Barca".

Antonio Conte confessed Chelsea "have a tendency to fire their Coaches".

Graham Hunter, Barcelona: This, of course, is most important for the fact that the Camp Nou leg of this tie is not only alive, it's bristling with interest and tension. I intend to respect it. After that, anything can happen in football.

Whereas so many of their pulsating past meetings have ultimately involved games exploding to produce some epic events, this was all about exploiting the finest of margins, the smallest of spaces.

Meanwhile, Barcelona are unbeaten in the Spanish league thus far and have booked themselves a place in the Copa Del Rey Final. "A team like Chelsea in every game must have the right pressure", said the Italian.

That's why Chelsea have a real chance tonight at Stamford Bridge, as Barcelona will offer up scoring opportunities.
