Chelsea FC trained this afternoon at the Camp Nou. The English team, who come into the match with a 1-0 advantage from the away leg, are prudent ahead of tomorrow’s match because they know it’s not easy to play against Guardiola’s men. Roberto Di Matteo, who recognized that both teams have “a 50% chance to go through” said, “we have the advantage but it will be complicated.”

The Chelsea manager, moreover, believes that “Barça will create opportunities, they do it against every team they play against. We have to try to score on Tuesday and avoid giving them chances.”

Cech agrees with Di Matteo

The keeper Peter Cech also believes that his team must attempt to score at the Camp Nou. “The game this Tuesday will be just like the first one. I hope we score because that will be the difference.” The keeper also recalled the goal Iniesta scored at Stamford Bridge in 2009 that earned Barça passage to the final in Rome.

The Chelsea player also believes that the result from the Clásico won’t influence the Catalan side tomorrow. “It will be a great match, what happened on Saturday won’t influence Barça on Tuesday. They have a lot of experience when it comes to managing defeat, they’ll concentrate on the match.”
