Steven Gerrard reveals huge Cesc Fabregas concern before Chelsea vs Barcelona

Alvaro Morata reportedly snubbed a move to Barcelona in favour

But it proved third time lucky for Willian on 62 minutes as Chelsea worked a corner routine which culminated in the 29-year-old collecting an Eden Hazard pass, shifting the ball out of his feet and bending a low attempt into the bottom corner.

Messi's lengthy drought against the Premier League champions, extended by a missed penalty in 2012, looked set to run on into a 10th game during a frustrating 90 minutes for the Argentinian against Chelsea.

Other "smaller" clubs have also overachieved in the Champions League in recent times.

Ivan Rakitic says Barcelona star Lionel Messi has been working out in the gym more often than ever in order to maintain his fitness this season. And he knows there's plenty of work yet to be done.

Usually in the intros to Best Picks articles that follow an worldwide or cup break I complain bitterly about how nobody cares and everyone just wants to see the Premier League. "Special for me, and something to tell my sons in the future because, probably, he'll be considered the best in history".

Chelsea drew 1-1 with Barcelona in Tuesday's other Champions League last-16 game.

Chelsea stunned Barcelona in the semi-finals in 2011-12, on the way to their one and only Champions League crown.




But Hazard doesn't stop there.

Barcelona levelled with a quarter of an hour remaining as Chelsea dropped their guard for the first time. At least for now. I'm happy here, my family is happy here.

'I'm just guessing, I'm just feeling, that against Barcelona there is going to be a lot of energy in this Chelsea team, from front to back, and Giroud might just be an option later in the game'.

There's no denying Hazard is world class. "We paid dearly for one mistake". You go to lose the game, not only 1-0 or 2-0 but like it happens in Spain, 4-0, 5-0, 6-0. But right now, he appears to be in no rush to move.

Pedro is likely to feature alongside former Barcelona player and teammate Cesc Fabregas, although Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is without trio Tiemone Bakayoko, David Luiz and Ross Barkley.

The mighty Bavarians are seen as hot favourites when they meet Beskistas next but they will have to fight it hard considering Beskistas records in this Champions League season. And there's nothing easy about it.

"For sure, we have two weeks and we know the games we play", he said.
