Chelsea will have to defeat Barcelona or at least play out a 2-2 draw against the Spanish giants if the Blues must reach the Champions League second round.

Antonio Conte has revealed that the players are excited to play this game and in the magnificent Nou Camp stadium.

“It is a fantastic stadium with a big pitch,” Conte said in his press conference. “I think every single player [who has] to play this type of game against Barcelona, must be excited. A lot of my players never played in this stadium, this is the first time, and we want to try to do our best.

“For sure, we have to make a great game if we want to have a chance to go to the next round. We are playing against Barcelona and I consider them one of the best teams in the world. But as we know well, we are never sure with football. Like the first leg, we want to try to play our football and try in every moment we have the ball, try to create chances and problems for Barcelona.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
