Barcelona's Ernesto Valverde on the other hand believes that they can not underrate Chelsea, thus, they need tactical master plan to qualify for quarterfinal. The referee has a long think but eventually blows his whistle to award Chelsea a free-kick.

At two minutes and eight seconds, it was the quickest goal of Messi's career for club and country, according to Opta, and the 99th of his Champions League career.

Antonio Conte has told Chelsea to be prepared to suffer to have any chance of progressing to the Champions League quarter-finals at the expense of Barcelona.

For Chelsea to have a chance of making it past Barcelona they must produce a flawless game just as Willian said in his pre-match conference.

Antonio Conte doesn't hide it: He expects Chelsea to struggle against Barcelona at the Camp Nou.

Chelsea's response was encouraging, with Eden Hazard sparkling, but ex-Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas left his team-mates with a mountain to climb.

"I hope my players also have the same excitement [as me]".

Conte said: "You must be excited to play this kind of game at the Nou Camp. A lot of my players have never played at the Nou Camp and we want to try to do our best".

The Catalan giants will be confident of getting a result against the Blues, having won three of their last four matches since the first-leg, although their record against the Premier League champions does not make for good reading.

"I feel better every day, I keep learning and [I have gained] much more experience than in other years".

"I don't think we deserve to be out, but individual mistakes cost us in both legs", the Belgium global told BT Sport. The Blues will need to win by a minimum scoreline of 1-0, no mean feat when one takes into account the opposition and the venue.

In arguably one of the greatest Champions League games ever, Chelsea came from behind to advance to the 2012 UCL final with a 2-2 draw against Barcelona.

But we have to face the fact that, even if he had stopped everything, Chelsea might still be out tonight because they couldn't score.

Chelsea will be looking for every single chance to counter and that is where Barca's possession game can be risky for the Catalans themselves.
