Conte: Mistake away from perfection

Conte: Mistake away from perfection”

15 minutes before time, 21-year-old Andreas Christensen's rare mistake presented Barça with an opportunity. With Andrés Iniesta, Luis Suárez and Lionel Messi lurking, it was inadvisable to say the least. Only one outcome could be envisaged.

Messi's goal was his first ever goal against Chelsea in nine games, sending his fans into a wild frenzy on Twitter.

For this reason, we must play an intelligent game and I repeat we are not stupid.

"We have confidence", the former Shakhtar Donetsk man said.

"If you want to face Barcelona box to box, you are insane", he further added. My players are not stupid.

"We have to defend well, we will try to keep Messi as far away as we can from the goal, and then I believe we have the level to go forward and to score and to make them doubt", Courtois said.

"When you play this way, the coach doesn't have a doubt and you play". But my team were excellent.

Willian hit the post twice in the first half before finally rolling a lovely curled shot into the bottom corner to break the deadlock, admittedly after some odd marking from Barcelona.

Chelsea's Willian, celebrates scoring his side's first goal of the game during the Champions League round of sixteen first leg soccer match between FC Barcelona and Chelsea at Stamford Bridge stadium in London, on Tuesday, Febriary 20, 2018. "But we managed to get an error out of them and get the equaliser and it is a good result in the end", he added.

"I think when you play this game you must have a plan and respect the characteristics of the opponent".

"I hope to see this type of performance for a long time - against Hull he played a fantastic game, tonight he played a fantastic game".

Speaking after the game Conte said he was proud of his players as they were just a little unlucky. "Our work is unique because we've always got our suitcase in our hands". The away goal could make it very hard for Antonio Conte's team to progress, as the Catalan giants are formidable opponents on home soil.

"It was a clash of styles", said Valverde. We had lots of possession close to their area but after the first few minutes they began to start testing us on the counter-attack. He had four shots, two of which were on target - the other two hitting the post, 25 passes with four key passes, six dribbles, 47 touches, 2 aerial duels won and was dispossessed three times.

"We have a lot of faith in him".
