5 things to look forward to when Chelsea take on Barcelona
What to expect of the two super-clubs when they lock horns in the Champions League round of 16
The UEFA Champions League has always been about excitement, thrill and goal-studded matches, with superstars in action. Last week, the fans were treated to an entertaining encounter between Real Madrid and PSG and this week, there's Chelsea's clash against Barcelona to look forward to.
The two have shared a great rivalry in the Champions League and expect them to once again go at it hammer and tongs when they take to the pitch tonight.
#1 Will Messi's goal-drought against Chelsea end?
Lionel Messi maybe one of the best players of all time, but he has still not been able to breach Chelsea's defence. Having played eight games against Chelsea, he has taken 29 shots against the Chelsea custodians. Yet, he has failed to score against them.
He missed a crucial penalty back in the semi-finals of the 2011-12 edition, as Chelsea eventually went on to win the tie and the competition. Head Coach Antonio Conte will hope the drought will continue.
Chelsea will have a tough time in dealing with the Argentine, who is known to break records every other game.
