Barcelona v Chelsea Predictions
Apart from rare moments of class, Chelsea have been disappointing this season. Conte has been criticized for his defensive tendencies away from home this season but Chelsea have to score here to stay in the tie after a Lionel Messi strike at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea will need to reverse their awful away form which has seen them lose the last 4 matches on the road.
Barcelona are unbeaten this season in La Liga and look a force to be reckoned with in Europe once again.
Chelsea will need to recapture last seasons league form to get anywhere near a Barca side that has an away goal under their belt. Chelsea will have to push on at some point leaving space on the vast pitch of The Camp Nou.
Chelsea have a good record against Barcelona but the fact is they are nowhere near their best, The Catalans should dispose of Chelsea after a cagey first half.
