The draw for the next round of the Champions League has been made and Chelsea will take on FC Barcelona.
The draw for the next stage of the Champions League has been made and it was far from ideal for Chelsea.
Antonio Conte’s men surrendered top spot in their qualification group on the final matchday and it has come back to haunt them today.
The Blues were drawn against FC Barcelona for the next stage of the European competition with the first match scheduled for the week commencing 12 February 2018.
Chelsea fans will have some very mixed memories of playing FC Barcelona in the competition.
From the highs of Fernando Torres’ goal in the Camp Nou in 2012 to the lows of Andres Iniesta’s strike to knock Chelsea out in the infamous Tom Henning Ovrebo match in 2009.
It’s not ideal but Chelsea fans are in for another trip to Camp Nou. FC Barcelona are performing incredibly well so far this term and haven’t lost a La Liga or a European match all season. Th Blues will need to be on top form in February.
