Chelsea star Pedro: 'Stopping Lionel Messi is not impossible'

Thibaut Courtois Real Madrid Chelsea

Will Chelsea dominate Barcelona again? At the same time, Olivier Giroud has joined from Arsenal, while the French worldwide opened his Chelsea account scoring in last weekend's FA Cup win over Hull.

Barcelona take on Chelsea and they visit Stamford Bridge in the first leg. They are the clubs with the most visibility. But Valverde's greatest accomplishment is on defense, where Barca look drastically improved over last season.

While Suarez has come up against Chelsea seven times in his career, scoring on two occasions.

Pedro is likely to feature alongside former Barcelona player and teammate Cesc Fabregas, although Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is without trio Tiemone Bakayoko, David Luiz and Ross Barkley.

Where and how to watch the online live streaming of Chelsea vs Barcelona? I've played a few good games this season: Atletico Madrid away, Roma here, and against Madrid.

"Messi is the best player in the world, he can make the difference at any time in a game".

Just don't get injured, Thomas. But now that Morata is back in the team, Conte would be hoping for more of the same from Hazard and Morata.

That is an indication that Barcelona are anxious about the mileage on key players' clocks. Let us know in the comments section below. "We must be excited to play this type of game".

Should they man-mark Messi?

"We are talking about a massive game, and a big challenge for us", said Conte who delivered the Premier League title last term but whose fourth-placed side have struggled to reach such high standards during his second season in charge.

While Messi did break his duck against Peter Cech after the Czech goalkeeper moved to Arsenal, but this time around he will find another impressive Chelsea goalie in front of him in the form of Thibaut Courtois.

Willian had given Chelsea the lead before Lionel Messi equalised in the 75th minute with his first goal in his ninth appearance against the Blues, ending his longest goal drought against any opponent. We have to go there and play the same game, compact and fight with every ball and I think we can do that. Be that as it may, while Manchester City loanee Pablo Maffeo did a great job, Girona lost 3-0.

However, Kevin believes they have one weakness which Antonio Conte's side can exploit.

"And I think Chelsea can cause trouble for them, especially the way they play and set up and I think if they use their full-backs well, they can cause problems". That extra mid-fielder might trouble the Argentinian and block his movement. "They've got players who can hit you well on the counterattack".

Applying the right tactics might win the game for Chelsea but we can not undermine the current Barcelona team and how are they playing at the moment.

With all that in mind, I am going to suggest that this game ends in a draw.
