So, once we are done with Barcelona, who do we want to play in the next round? Hoping to avoid an English side.
Sevilla would be a nice option

Chelsea U19's beat Real Madrid U19's in Madrid by 4 goals to 2 for Chelsea. Plus Chelsea play with 10 men because of a straight red card given in the 68th minute.

Anyone but Liverpool... Never hear the end of it.

They were right with the false nine in the first leg, so I don't doubt it. I expected Morata to start when the draw was made but he's gone downhill fast.

We need to score in first 10 minutes or I don't see the game going our way... we need a goal early or they would just be happy with a draw if they can't break us (which is very unlikely judging by how our season has gone so far).

If we can keep the game 0-0 or 0-1 till 60 minutes that would be still good enough..we just need to take our chances in counter...Let's go Chelsea

Fuck it. It'll be 0-0 till the 92nd minute and Giroud will score for the 1-0 win!

Not sure about giroud his pace might be hindrance to our counter attack...Fabregas in midfield 2 is a huge liability..this time he will not have Pedro to cover his ass.. I think Conte mostly opted for that xi based on form

Let's not do what we did before at the bridge... Nothing nothing nothing almost through. Oh look there their goal out we go.... Pen claims aside so many wasted chances 

We need to score anyway so need to go for it.

Why are people worried about this? It's not like our counter-attacks have been threatening with pacey players to say the least, we still looked clueless and technically lacking. At least now we can hope for Giroud to make some knock-downs to on-running players, this has worked wonders for us in the past with a certain Drogba. If anything he will help our counter-attacks by actually creating some with hold-up and link-up play. Great line-up, exactly what I would have posted.

I like the sound of that but I think it would be more fitting if Morata scored why? you know kind of like what Torres did the last time we where here...

Making up for his price tag to some extent.

For Morata it would be even more special because he is from Real Madrid.

Expect Barca to be much more aggressive and forceful from the start here. Especially with Dembele. They'll be eager to try to put us away as soon as they can because they know our history with comebacks. 

Biggest worry is of course our midfield. Kante and Cesc will have to play perfect games as well as our 3 CB's.

Please avoid playing overly defensive to be eventually defeated. Barca is 90% likely to go through because they are just better than us. We have to go. Do no play same awful defensive tactics like ManU yesterday. It would mean exit of CL and angry from fans.
