Hazard and Pedro believe Chelsea can beat Barcelona — Champions League

GK Cameron Dawson  Kept in-form Swansea at bay for 90 minutes including a world class save to touch Mike van der Hoorn’s header over the bar

It may also be streamed through the MUTV App and the UEFA Champions League App, according to the Live Soccer website.

But, all of that will be forgotten once the ball gets moving on the Stamford Bridge turf this evening to kick off what promises to be a thrilling and famous night of European football. You can watch the game on the go as well on Sonyliv app.

Barca's top scorer this season, Lionel Messi, is yet to score in eight appearances against the Blues.

Chelsea versus Barcelona is a thoroughly modern rivalry.

Besiktas will no doubt have their hands full with Bayern's litany of stars, including Polish striker Robert Lewandowski.

Hazard has never given himself a chance of winning the Ballon d'Or, though, and said last year that there are too many players better than him.

"Besiktas are a team that can play football and it's no surprise that they are here".

Messi, 30, has played every match for Barca in 2017-18 apart from the first three rounds of the Copa del Rey, scoring 27 goals in the process.

The Blues have won just four of their last 12 games in all competitions.

"The thing we worked on to negate Messi was trying to deny him space as much as possible and we did it really well".

Conte complained then it was impossible for Italian sides to compete at the latter stages of the Champions League.

Will Messi finally score against Chelsea today? Avram Grant, who has always enjoyed good slices of fortune, benefited from an incredible injury time own goal by John Arne Riise in the quarter-final first leg in 2008 to beat Liverpool in extra time at Stamford Bridge and put the curse to rest.

"The Premier League teams are having a great Champions League and we can't forget we are playing against the current English league champions", Valverde told a news conference. "It would've been suicidal".

Lionel Messi snatched a crucial late away goal for Barcelona as Chelsea carelessly threw away a hard-earned advantage at Stamford Bridge. Alvaro Morata looked out of pace when coming on for Olivier Giroud in the FA Cup win over Hull City and should ideally be on the bench, with the Frenchman leading the attack. That extra mid-fielder might trouble the Argentinian and block his movement.

Pedro is likely to feature alongside former Barcelona player and teammate Cesc Fabregas, although Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is without trio Tiemone Bakayoko, David Luiz and Ross Barkley.

The match is on February 20, 2018, and the time of the Chelsea vs Barca game is 01:15 AM India time.
