Barcelona – Chelsea – UEFA Champions League
Barcelona ranks first in La Liga, with 72 points in 28 championship games. Argentinean Lionel Messi is the team’s top scorer in the championship, managing to score 24 times so far. The hosts have a very good season in La Liga, being still without defeat. In the past, they have achieved a great success on the way to the title, after a 2-0 on the Malaga field. The hosts can not rely on Philippe Coutinho (who does not have the right to play) and the injured Nelson Semedo and Denis Suarez.
Ter Stegen – Alba, Umtiti, Pique, Roberto – Iniesta, Busquets, Rakitic, Paulinho – Messi, Suarez
On the other side, Chelsea is ranked fifth in the league’s first league in England, with the team managing to gather 56 points in 30 stages. Belgian Eden Hazard is the best scorer in the championship, with 11 goals scored so far. The guests have alternating evolutions in the championship, with 3 points accumulated in so many games. Previously, Chelsea managed to score on its own, 2-1 in front of Crystal Palace. Antonio Conte’s students managed to advance in the next round of the English Cup after a 4-0 on their own at Hull. Tiemoue Bakayoko and David Luiz will not travel because of medical problems.
Courtois – Azpilicueta, Christensen, Rudiger – Moses, Kante, Fabregas, Alonso – Willian, Pedro – Hazard
Prediction Barcelona – Chelsea UEFA
The two teams drew a 1-1 lead on the Stamford Bridge tour, so the Catalans start with this first chance. Chelsea has always been an inconvenient team for Barcelona, whether we’re talking about official games or we’re talking about friendly games. I’m expecting a duel in which the English will try their chances and will attack in the first half. My recommendations on this duel are based solely on goals, which I hope will be as many as possible.
Prediction Today: Barcelona – Chelsea Both teams to score
Prediction of the Day: Barcelona – Chelsea Over 3.5 goals
