Chelsea vs Barcelona, Champions League

Chelsea vs Barcelona, Champions League

Cesc Fabregas has revealed that communication with his friends at Barcelona has dried up as Chelsea prepare to take on the Catalan giants in the Champions League round of 16 on Tuesday.

In the next eight fixtures, Conte's said face; both legs against Barcelona, trips to Manchester City and Manchester United, London derbies against Crystal Palace, West Ham and Tottenham, and the next round of the FA Cup.

Rivaldo, 45, wore the Barcelona jersey between 1997 and 2002, achieving two Spanish League titles and a cup title before leaving to Milan.

"I played against them before with Roma, but now I'm with Chelsea".

"The Premier League teams are having a great Champions League and we can't forget we are playing against the current English league champions", Valverde told a news conference.

"You have to prepare everything for a game like this, from the big things to the smallest details". "I have big friends, friends that I played with since I was 13".

"If we can (get) past this first phase of their pressure, then we have the content to do that, and not put ourselves under too much pressure, then I think we can hurt them because they will leave a lot of spaces at the back". We play in a different league. "It's different playing Chelsea due to their formation, but Girona play with a similar system in La Liga so we've played against it before".

IVAN RAKITIC SAYS Barcelona star Lionel Messi works at "100 per cent" in training but spends little time in the gym. We have an idea. We are talking about the best player in the world. "But before everything else we have to be sure about we are going to do, be fully prepared for the game and go for the win". Fortunately we have a head coach who's well versed in fostering just such a collective ethos and organisation. These two games will be very important to understand which is our level in this competition. "Messi has the capacity to solve the situation and create a chance when you are not seeing the chance".

"Anyone who has fear or something like that should not play".

Hazard knows he heeds to be as good as Messi and Ronaldo in order to win the Ballon d'Or, especially with Neymar one of his main rivals for the prize. The other team are very unsafe, so we have to work as a team to try and stop Barcelona: Messi, Suarez, Iniesta. the whole team of Barcelona. His teams are very well-worked tactically, they know what to do in every moment of the game.

And Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde admits he's anxious about Chelsea's unique qualities. The English style of football is a unique, physical style, but they play good football as well.
