Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde admitted after Barcelona’s 3-0 win over Chelsea at Nou Camp on Wednesday night that Barcelona suffered against Chelsea.
Chelsea controlled much of the game but poor finishing cost Chelsea.
“We suffered a lot in this game because they were pressing really hard and creating a lot of danger,” Valverde said.
“They showed they were a great team with great players and we were lucky enough to knock them out.
“I have to admit they have been a great rival, a great team. It’s been a very difficult tie, both legs.
“I think we scored with the first chance we had.”
