Chelsea and Barcelona have a tough fixture tonight at the Nou Camp, as both sides will give everything to go through to the next round of the Champions League.

Lionel Messi cancelled out Willian’s opener to end the first leg 1-1, and now the Blues must produce another terrific performance to outplace the Spanish giants.

Juliano Belletti played for both clubs and was often used as a utility player for Chelsea has talked about his two former sides facing each other, and the Brazilian told the official Chelsea website that he is expecting yet another difficult game which he believes can go anywhere.

“The first leg was a top-quality game with great players on both sides,” said the Brazilian, who scored five goals in 94 appearances for the Blues between 2007 and 2010 and played in midfield at times.

“The first game was good for Barcelona, but I think Chelsea can surprise them at the Camp Nou as well, because they have a lot of good players, as do Barcelona, so it will definitely be another great game.

“Of course Chelsea have a chance, but have to give a lot of respect to Barcelona, because they are a good team as well, so there are no favourites for this match. It is just a great opportunity to see a great match.”

Belletti then admitted he has the club at heart and watches the Club’s games regularly with his family who are also fans of Chelsea.

He added: “I really love this country, London and, of course, this club is in my heart. I always speak about Chelsea with my kids, with my family, because it was a great time for me here at this club.

“I definitely look out for Chelsea’s results because I still have friends here. I am a Chelsea supporter, my kids love this club, so all of us in my home watch the Chelsea matches.”
