Chelsea get opportunity to avenge for United against Barcelona

Timothy Aiyeku



West London outfit Chelsea are reported to have set up a clash against Spanish La Liga Barcelona in this coming summer for a preseason game in Japan on June 23 at the Saitama Stadium in North Tokyo.

This could be an opportunity for the West London outfit to take up revenge for the English Premier League counter-part Man United despite the fact that it would be on a lighter note.

Man United were defeated by the Spanish giants in the Champions League quarterfinals earlier this week and that marks the end of their European journey this season.

However, Chelsea will have a test of the Spanish side later at the end of the season for the MEIJI YASUDA J.LEAGUE WORLD CHALLENGE 2019 which is organized by Yokohama Tyres.

However, the Blues team have got no opportunity to meet with the La Liga outfit in a more competitive game because of their failure to secure qualification to the Champions League this season.

The West Londoners played in the Europa League and they are currently in the quarterfinals with the second leg expected later on Thursday after seeing a 1-0 win in the first leg. A win will ensure they progress to the semi-finals.
