Chelsea Starting XI Prediction vs Barcelona (Champions League)


The Catalans will take on Chelsea in the second leg of last 16 in the Champions League.

"I'm very pleased to have the opportunity at the end of the game to give him my compliments". Chelsea needs to score at least a goal to be able to advance.

Costa was angry with Conte's handling of the situation, and it appears the striker still holds a grudge against his former boss, judging by his Instagram post shortly before Chelsea and Barcelona kicked off their second leg on Wednesday evening.

Chelsea were unfortunate only to take a draw from the first leg at Stamford Bridge, where Lionel Messi's equaliser spoiled an otherwise dominant Blues performance. Pique goes down holding his face but there's no intent from the Frenchman as play continues.

He was received by the Foreign affairs minister Geofrey Onyeama at the forecourt of the Villa. "We are trying to be careful". He says he believes those steps will "allow us to begin to normalize the travel relationship with Chad".

Although this nearly worked in the first leg against Barcelona, it didn't against the United clubs and most recently failed against City where Chelsea failed to make any significant impact that led to Eden Hazard questioning Conte's tactics. Chelsea hit the woodwork twice, but were their own worst enemies in defence.

Chelsea will be looking for every single chance to counter and that is where Barca's possession game can be risky for the Catalans themselves.

Chelsea almost secured a consolation goal in the dying minutes, but Antonio Rudiger hit the crossbar with a header.

"I don't think we deserve to be out, but individual mistakes cost us in both legs", the Belgium worldwide told BT Sport. Therefore, they basically have to play a flawless game at Camp Nou. "In the Barcelona dressing room after the Chelsea game, I saw Leo cry". "And a midfielder that thinks, to stay always in the centre of Barcelona's play".

The cause of the firing was an unspecified security issue, said a third White House official with knowledge of the situation. McEntee managed to keep a low profile in a campaign and White House often embroiled in controversy.

Antonio Conte's Blues know they will have to score tonight or go out as a 0-0 draw will do for Barca, however a score draw higher than 1-1 will send last season's Premier League champions through.

Timed at two minutes, eight seconds, that is Lionel Messi's quickest ever Champions League goal.

"I feel better every day, I keep learning and [I have gained] much more experience than in other years". It is down to the player.

But for Ross Barkley and Tiemoue Bakayoko, neither of whom were likely to be starters, Antonio Conte has a full squad to choose from. He has now scored 100 times in 123 games in this competition.
