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.

NY used 10 starting line combinations and only had two games in which a runner gained at least 100 yards, both by Orleans Darkwa. The Patriots now have offensive tackles Marcus Cannon, Cole Croston , Andrew Jelks and Antonio Garcia under contract for 2018.

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".

Actors Katherine Waterston , Dan Fogler , Alison Sudol , Ezra Miller , Zoë Kravitz and Carmen Ejogo also return for the sequel. The Crimes of Grindelwald is the second of five planned Fantastic Beasts films, following the first in 2016.

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.
