Chelsea entertain Barcelona at Stamford Bridge in one of the most eagerly anticipated fixtures this season.
The Premier League champions are facing arguably the world’s best team as they look to make a mark on their return to Europe’s premier club competition.
While winning the Premier League title for the fifth time in their history last season, the Blues were devoid of Champions League participation which aided their title success.
Having returned to the most treasured club competition in world football, the Blues will be eager to make a statement by beating one of the world’s best teams.
Antonio Conte’s side have only lost once in their previous nine games against Barcelona, and the Blues defeated the Catalan giants on their way to winning the Champions League during the 2011/2012 season.
There’s no underestimating the significance of this European tie, and Chelsea supporters have taken to Twitter to express their excitement ahead of tonight’s game…
The grudge match continues.
