BARCA LATEST NEWS
With just one away goal, it is important that Barca stay strong at the back to avoid Chelsea picking up a couple of away goals themselves. They have Andres Iniesta back which is a massive boost as well as Messi who returned to training on Monday after missing a few days because of ‘personal reasons’.

BLUES LATEST NEWS
If Chelsea scores the first goal in Spain then they could go on to record a famous victory but it could be a long way back if they concede first. They are without Antonio Rudiger for the away trip but Cesar Azpilicueta, Gary Cahill, and Andreas Christensen are the first choices for the center-back position.

SUMMARY
There are no prizes for guessing the favorites and Barcelona will be hoping to make Wednesday night’s fixture as easy as possible with plenty of football still to be played. However, Antonio Conte will make his team hard as the beat with pace on the counter-attack, not allowing the hosts to become too comfortable.

MATCH-UP TO WATCH (Luis Suarez vs Cesar Azpilicueta)
All the attention will be on Leo Messi in the second-leg but it is the movement of Luis Suarez that will need to be watched closely. The Uruguayan certainly knows how to score against English teams and Azpilicueta will have to be on top of his game to keep him quiet.
