Champions League Can Chelsea hold Barca?

Can Chelsea hold Barca?

20th February 2018

Tonight's CHampions League clash at the Bridge sees Chelsea face Barcelona.

The Spanish giants are favourites to take a win from the first leg clash - Chelsea can be backed at 11/4 in places whilst the visitors are a best rpiced 23/20 - the draw can be backed ta 13/5 on Betfair SP

Given that Chelsea won the last clash at home 1-0 in April 2012 having drawn 2-2 in Spain home fans will belive lightening can strike again.

But, this Barca team has two of the best five or six players in the World in Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez.

Chelsea lack a play maker in form - although Eden Hazard can turn any match when on song. Antonio Conte needs a big result with the Premier League title already relinquished -

Chelsea look likley to raise their game and the odds may not do justice to their actual chance of a win.

All the last 16 games have resulted in goals but this fixture looks set to stop that trend. A low scoring draw looks the way to go.
