Champions League: Barcelona vs Chelsea - Lineups, Preview and Predicition

Marcos Alonso

We did all we could to score another goal but Fernando [Torres] scored the second on the counter-attack and eliminated us. "I don't know whether Iniesta can play tomorrow but this type of game requires the best players - I do not hope he's injured and misses out".

Antonio Conte brings the reigning English Premier League champions to the Camp Nou with a relatively full squad.

While attending a press conference the Brazilian said, "In the Camp Nou you have to play the flawless match".

Willian recalled Chelsea's memorable display in adversity at the Nou Camp in April 2012, when they went on to win the competition.

"We made one mistake and paid a lot for it". It was a valiant first-leg effort from the Premier League side, but a late goal from Barca gave them the clear advantage heading back home.

"We know there are moments to suffer for every team against Barcelona, we must be prepared to suffer, to be compact".

"We were a little bit unlucky with the first two goals, we hit the post three times and had so many chances in both games".

Marcos Alonso Chelsea

Chelsea's slump has seen them lose limply to Arsenal in the Carabao Cup semifinals and get hammered in the league by also-rans Bournemouth and Watford.

Barcelona midfielder, Sergio Busquets, has said they need to pay "special attention" to Willian, when they host Chelsea in their Champions League round of 16 tie on Wednesday night.

"I'm happy with my form and I am happy with the goals that I scored", the 29-year-old added. This means they go into the second leg with a significant disadvantage.

But after Conte claimed playing in a more open style against City and Barcelona would be "stupid" given their superior quality, Hazard may be forgiven for wondering if he can realise his ambitions at Stamford Bridge should Chelsea fail to make the quarter-finals for a fourth straight season. "We have a very important game, too important to deviate to other topics".

The Spanish League campaigners' have been tagged favourites to go through to the next stage of the competition owing to their away goal in London in the first leg of the two-legged fixture.

Hazard will faceoff against Messi when Chelsea take on Barcelona for a spot in the last eight.

"If we concede easy goals and miss chances, then it is very hard against this team".
