Defending champions Chelsea are starting to get back on track with two consecutive victories. Antonio Conte’s men smashed Hull City in the FA Cup as the battle ended in 4-0 win of the Blues. Willian scored twice along with Pedro and Giroud to secure an empathic win at the Stamford Bridge. The result has lifted the club into the FA Cup quarter finals.
As Chelsea host to Barcelona, Marcos Alonso, Tiemoué Bakayoko, David Luiz, and Ross Barkley remain to be a doubtful in the match. Moreover, manager Conte will have to decide whether to recall Alvaro Morata to the starting XI following his return to fitness or stick with an in-form Olivier Giroud.
Barcelona recently travelled to the home soil of Eibar. As expected, La Liga front runners beat the host in a 0-2 encounter.
And again, Barcelona will be traveling to Stamford Bridge for the first leg of Champions League last 16- tie on Wednesday, February 21 (Asia GMT+8). Star player and newly signed Philippe Coutinho is unlikely to be featured here along with Nelson Semedo and Thomas Vermaelen.
This is going to be an intense battle, but the Premier League giants Chelsea are likely to progress and win this game against La Liga’s front runners, Barcelona (Sign Up for other interesting Sportsbook and Virtual Sports).
