CL: Barcelona happy with a goalless draw against Chelsea, says Sergio Busquets

Visitors only managed to level the score when Messi pounced on Andres Iniesta pass after Chelsea defender Andres Cristensen made a regrettable stray pass.

Costa was angry with Conte's handling of the situation, and it appears the striker still holds a grudge against his former boss, judging by his Instagram post shortly before Chelsea and Barcelona kicked off their second leg on Wednesday evening.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte says good players want to compete in matches like these this: "Every player must be excited to play this kind of game".

Barcelona legend Carles Puyol fears that The Blues could dump the Catalonian's out of the Champions League once again like they did back in 2012.

"We have to pay special attention to him, but [also Alvaro] Morata, Pedro or Hazard".

14 - The 2011-12 season was Messi's most prolific in the Champions League, hitting 14 goals in the competition to top the scoring charts, although Barcelona were beaten by Chelsea in the semi-finals that campaign. However, their team boasts some of the best players in the world, and they've had to watch their arch-rivals Real Madrid lift the trophy in 2016 and 2017.

Baylor is No. 1 seed in 2018 NIT Tournament
The Eagles (19-15), who finished with their most wins since the 2010-11 season, will face off against Western Kentucky on Tuesday. Despite losing their starting front line, the Huskers were also six points per game better on the offensive end this season.

From their 1-1 draw at home against the La Liga leaders in the first leg, to their demoralising defeat at Old Trafford and a shambolic performance at the Etihad, inconsistency and inadequacy have been second nature for the otherwise purposeful London club.

"And a midfielder that thinks, to stay always in the centre of Barcelona's play".

Ernesto Valverde's side will be wanting to exact revenge on the English team, however, he will remain without three key men for the clash.

The goal was the Argentine's first against Chelsea in nine meetings and put his side in an advantageous position, with the onus now on the Blues who must score in Spain to stand a chance of going through.

On Saturday, Chelsea laboured to another win in the Premier League, despite taking a two-goal lead within the first 30 minutes. This was a seriously important game in a finely balanced tie.

123 - Messi has taken 123 appearances in the Champions League to reach three figures in the competition - with 112 of those starts. "For Barcelona, the advantage they have is that with the 1-1 draw they will go through with a 0-0", Puyol added.
