Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde has acknowledged the difficulty his side will face when they come up against Chelsea in the Champions League round of 16.
Valverde also pinpointed Alvaro Morata and Eden Hazard as Chelsea’s danger men.
“It’s a tough draw for us because of the magnitude of the opposition,” Valverde said.
“Chelsea are champions of the Premier League but we’re excited about the tie, even though it will be difficult.
“Chelsea are a strong and physical team, with a clear tactical system in place. They take advantage of the physical nature of the Premier League well.
“With the signing of Morata they’ve added pace in attack, while (Eden) Hazard is very good between the lines.”
