Barcelona v Chelsea line-ups: Giroud starts, Barca star plays

Eden Hazard

Lionel Messi is unlikely to be tempted to move to the Premier League, according to Sergio Busquets, with the Barcelona star available again and ready to take on Chelsea.

"In the first game, we played a really good game, nearly a ideal game".

Despite Conte's praise for Barcelona, Chelsea has done well against the Spanish powerhouse recently, including at Camp Nou.

Prediction: Barcelona versus Chelsea at Camp Nou is a hard match to predict, notwithstanding the fact that Barcelona remain favourites in the game.

'The first leg was a top-quality game with great players on both sides, ' said the Brazilian, who scored five goals in 94 appearances for the Blues between 2007 and 2010 and played in midfield at times.

Most of Chelsea fans would be counting on a repeat of their 2-2 draw at Nou Camp in 2012 the year they won the Champions League.

"We made one mistake and paid a lot for it".

14 - The 2011-12 season was Messi's most prolific in the Champions League, hitting 14 goals in the competition to top the scoring charts, although Barcelona were beaten by Chelsea in the semi-finals that campaign.

"We played a really good game and nearly a ideal game".

Costa posted a picture of Chelsea's line-up graphic on his Instagram page, but notably he had scrubbed out Conte's name from the image.

Chelsea superstar Willian believes his side must stay United if they must stand a chance to upset Barcelona on their home soil as well as progress to the quarterfinals of the Champions League.

"We have seen few matches this season where they haven't scored so hopefully they will score and go through".

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has described Barcelona's Andres Iniesta as a "genius" and challenged Eden Hazard to emulate the Spaniard by winning major trophies. If you play against Barcelona, to have opportunities you must be ideal. The final result of that games gives a great advantage to Barcelona. "When you have the ball, I repeat, we must know very well which is the way to go, to try to score and create chances, in the same way we did at Stamford Bridge".

- Barcelona have only lost four of their 40 Champions League knockout games at home (W26 D10), with Liverpool the only English team to secure a victory there (2-1 in February 2007).
