Chelsea clash against Barcelona on Tuesday in the UEFA Champions League competition. The Blues have been ruled out of the game even before kick-off by some of pundits and fans as they claimed that the Spanish side are in great form since the start of the season, compared to Chelsea who have enjoyed a bittersweet experience so far this season.
Despite writing off the Blues by pundits, Chelsea Fans across the world hope that their players could surprise everyone by picking up the maximum points at stake after 90minutes of action.
The Blues faithful believe the team could draw inspiration from 2012 UEFA Champions League final match involving the Blues and Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich. Despite all odds during the game, Chelsea were crowned the European Champions after a penalty shootout.
Eden Hazard— who has been a standout performer in Conte’s team so far this season— has a lot of work to do at the middle of the pitch later today as he will hope to use is tricks and dribbles to his side’s favour.
Another player who could a game-changer for Chelsea is France international player Ngolo Kante. Though not in his usual form, the former Leicester City player is definitely going to be needed by Conte to stop Barca’s play in the middle of the pitch.
One of the stats that favour Chelsea going into the match is Barca star Lionel Messi’s lack of goal against the Blues. Despite his impressive goalscoring record, the five-time Balon d’Or winner is yet to score a goal against the Blues.
Today’s game is surely a clash of the titans that no pundits and fans should miss.
