If at first you don't succeed! – Fans rejoice as Willian finally gets his goal

Antonio Conte

Lionel Messi and company were seen being put through their paces on Monday night, but can the Argentinean finally score against the Blues?

Tuesday's Champions League encounter was the ninth time that Messi had faced Chelsea, a run of games stretching back to 2006 when the sides met in the competition's group stages.

Barcelona levelled with a quarter of an hour remaining as Chelsea dropped their guard for the first time. "We paid dearly for one mistake". Willian, who drifts in and out of the team, fired Chelsea in front after hitting the woodwork twice in the first half. You will need to log in with your cable provider information. "What do we do then?"

"We have an idea".

"We have to play our game".

"Without the mistake Barca were struggling to create a chance to score", Conte said. The two have broadcasted different form from last season, with the roles reversed in their 2017-2018 campaigns.

"But this game must give us a lot of confidence to trust in the second leg".

Chelsea boast their own attacking arsenal, including Eden Hazard.

Christensen, 21, had only made three Chelsea appearances before this season but has regularly featured in 2017-18 with England centre-half Gary Cahill on the bench at Stamford Bridge.

"I keep telling Lionel how easy it was, but he's not having it".

Messi loves to play in the midfield area and the 3-5-2 formation might trouble him. I repeat: Christensen for me, he was one of the best players tonight. "The pass to him was perfect, the control was perfect", Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde said.

"I don't remember a great save from Thibaut".

That kicked off a series of often epic encounters between the teams in the following six years. We are talking about one of the best players in the world.

"We gave them a big chance at Camp Nou where they are strong, but we are positive". But his focus remains on Chelsea.

Conte admitted he hopes Chelsea can extend that record, but conceded he knows full well the size of that challenge.

"It is a fine line for Chelsea".

The 28-year-old is Bayern's lucky charm as they are now unbeaten in 62 competitive matches that Müller has scored in (W59 D3).

Nélson Semedo was suspended in the Barcelona team. Willian could have easily scored a hat trick today.
