As the countdown to Chelsea’s Champions League tie with Barcelona comes to an end, with just few hours to kick-off, one might be wondering how Chelsea might fare in this game.
However, former Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas isn’t all that worried about the game as he has admitted that the Chelsea players know what to do against his former club.
“Well, they are a fantastic team, with the best player in the history of this sport, so it will obviously be a really tough challenge for us, mainly because they have top players, but Leo [Messi] makes the difference, the big difference,” Fabregas explained.
“We know what we can do and we know how we can play, we’ll have a plan and try to do the best we can. This is football, that’s why it’s a fantastic sport, anything can happen at any time and we’ll try to expose their weaknesses and win.
“The style of football that we play is very much our brand and it’s all about the collective, both in terms of attack and defence.
“We know exactly what our game is all about and always go into matches with a plan. Apart from that, it’s a case of analysing the opposition, which isn’t easy, because they’ve got some great players right throughout their team, and the idea will be to try and stop them in the areas where they’re the most dangerous.”
