"First, I see the game tomorrow", Hazard added.

But this year, 5 teams have reached the round of 16 and it looks like that Premier League dominance is back in this tournament. Ernesto Valverde is overseeing great success at the Nou Camp and they are sure to pose a hugely dangerous threat to Chelsea when the two sides lock horns this evening.

Could that trio be used in combination again against Barcelona? The Catalan club has been humming along, so you have to figure Messi will end his goal drought against Chelsea on Tuesday. "There is more to come from me in this competition", said the Belgian.

It all started in 2005, when the Blues overcame Barca in an extremely dramatic last-16 battle.

Under Jose Mourinho, Chelsea aped the performance of 2000 by rushing into an early three goal lead, erasing a 2-1 deficit. Both teams took three points on home soil a year later, but that was all irrelevant because both qualified for the knockout stage anyway.

A short corner was worked into the Brazilian's path and he arrowed a low shot past the rooted Ter Stegen. We play in a different league.

But Barca's protests had barely been silenced before they were level.

An extremely cynical tap tackle on Willian earned Ivan Rakitic a yellow card and Chelsea a free-kick in a very dangerous position.

Messi will face the Blues for the ninth time in his illustrious career, however, the Barca talisman is yet to score against Chelsea.

Luck changed only after the Special One was fired.

"Performances have not been good enough - yes they got the win the other night (against Hull City in the FA Cup) - but these next 10 days will tell us a lot about his future. Messi has the capacity to solve the situation, to create a chance when you haven't seen the chance to score", he said. Also, the Englishman is nowhere near as accomplished as Willian when it comes to simply keeping the football away from opponents.

John Terry and Ricardo Carvalho both managed to keep a lid on Messi during previous encounters, while Branislav Ivanovic man-marked the Argentinian out of the game in the last meeting between the two sides.

"I learned so much from them as team-mates".

Star forward Lionel Messi has already broken the 30-goal barrier for the season.

It had little effect though as Bayern grabbed their third when Kimmich's cross was met by Mueller at the near post on 66 minutes.

Barcelona were one of four teams to remain unbeaten in this season's Champions League group stages, alongside Besiktas, Liverpool and Tottenham.
