Clash of the titans: Antonio Conte admits Barcelona worries

Chelsea welcome the in-form Catalan giants Barcelona in the first leg of their round of 16 champions league clash at Stamford bridge.

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte says he has suffered sleepless nights plotting the downfall of Barcelona and Lionel Messi.

 

Both clubs have won the tournament in the last decade and are giants of their domestic competitions.

 

The blues are premier league champions, while Barcelona lead La Liga after falling three points shy of the title last season.

 

Chelsea and Barcelona are facing each other for the 13th time in the champions’ league, the fifth-most played fixture in the competition. They haven’t played each other since April 2012 where Chelsea won 3-2 on aggregate.
