Barcelona vs Chelsea Preview

Barcelona vs Chelsea (1:1)

Competition – UEFA Champions League

Stadium – Estadio Camp Nou

Date: 14th March 2018

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

Barcelona faced the prospect of leaving Stamford Bridge without a goal and a defeat in the first leg of this encounter when they were 1-0 down with 15 minutes to play, but Lionel Messi, just like he has always done came up with the equalizer to give them an away goal advantage.

The Catalans come into this game unbeaten in their last 14 matches, and they have nine victories from that run of games.

Lionel Messi missed their weekend’s game against Malaga because of the birth of his son and he will be fresh for this game and could rock the Blues yet again.

The Blues come into this game off the back of a 2-1 win over Crystal Palace, but 2018 has not been the most fruitful year for them.

They have just 4 victories from 16 games since the turn of the year and suffered a shocking back to back loss to Watford and Bournemouth earlier.

On the road the stats are even more dreadful as they have lost their last 4 away games and have just 2 wins from their last 11 travels.

Chelsea have won one of the last seven meetings with Barcelona with the remaining 6 ending in draws.
