This should have been 8-0
+1
Paulinho >>> CR IYKWIM ;)


Hint: taps
Paulinho the post master
So it's confirmed, Suarez got rubbed again...LOL
+1
Tebas has done it again !!
+1
This is embarrassing. The best league in the world and we don't even have goal line technology while leagues like Seria already have VAR lol
Who else here take issue with Valverde not playing Semedo on a regular basis? For today's game, he did not even make the bench.
Instead, Val is counting on Sergi as RB. I think Semedo should play RB and Sergi in midfield.

+1
I agree on Sergi in Midfield, him and Denis need to get a very good look in Midfield to see what they have to offer. Semedo should play regularly too, unless he has some sort of knock or small injury, then it make sense to keep him out for the next game, you just don't know from up here, and sometimes managers don't want to mention that type of issues.
In most cases the team that plays attacking football is the winner. Just make sure not to get caught on the counter start Mascherano and Busi in midfield if need be to stop Chelsea on the counter.

Ps- Dembele coming back will be a huge boost.
Mascherano and Busi in the middle don't work. It has been tested before. The midfield losses its fluidity and they don't play side by said as you'd imagine.
I am just waiting for the day when we crush this Chelsea team and put their arrogance into a trash bin. Can't wait for Feb!
+1
Don’t underestimate Chelsea, our record against them speaks for itself. They defend and press really well. I honestly think they will beat us and go through. I’m not impressed by the we play at the moment and we rely on Messi a lot. Take him out and we will struggle hard. Our coach is a clueless man when it comes to tactics and we haven’t even faced a stronger side yet. I feel like this is gonna be a tata martinho year all again this season.
+4
MSNforce, let us not underestimate ourselves and overestimate them just because our history is OK against them. I am 100% sure we will thrash them this time!
Messi must be hungry for this game
It will be an even game, we only have an edge If there's one because Messi is playing for us.
+1
Chelsea are the favorites. Unless we improve our squad big time in January window, we have no chance
I know we have drawbacks but those can be reduced at least in this Jan window. If you say we have no chance with the present squad, then, why play? This is so insulting to our team. We are the top of the league, topped our UCL group, we have the best players in the world, and we also have the best defensive record in Europe. I mean what else do you need?

Also, let us not forget that they also have their own drawbacks, worse than us.
I see Barcelona winning this one but underestimating Chelsea will just bite you back in the ass, remember the last time Chelsea v Barca met in CL? The year the Chelsea bus won against Barcelona?

Yeah, no amount of Messi's stats and defensive records could save Barcelona.
^
The Season when we won CL is when we parked Bus against Barca and even in the finals because that team was not good enough to win going against teams like Barca and Bayern.

But if you have watch Barc vs Chelsea before that you would have some idea about how good some of those games were. I dont have to bring those stats to prove how close those games were, because everyone would remember quality of players both teams had and they played.

I'm sure nobody needs a reminder about who reached two CL finals parking bus football and thankfully failed to win both.

This year Chelsea might probably lose to Barca because Conte does not play for draws and his set-up will give enough chances for likes of Messi to punish us.
Because our team lacks quality in midfield. We have freaking Paulinho and Rakitic starting for us. There is a reason why we haven't gone past QF of CL thrice in last 4 years despite having MSN. Most of the game is played in midfield and with an aging Iniesta and a very average midfielder in Rakitic, Busquets has way too much to do and elite teams easily take advantage. It might not show up in league games but it shows up in the big games in CL.

Don't let the league standing fool you. We started the season similarly in 13/14 under Tata Martino and eventually ended up trophyless. This team needs a serious upgrade in midfield not to mention, we need Suarez back in form. Messi, Umtiti and Ter Stegen are the ones saving us in the league, but it's not sustainable in the long run.
+1
Chelsea is a solid team who are playing slightly below their potential. The EPL looks worse than it really is because City are so good. Take City out of the equation and you have a very close league. Also, I don't know why you believe they're arrogant? I don't see us crushing Chelsea especially in this year. We might win and there's a big chance we will actually lose but crushing....you will have to wait for it for a long time.
Chelsea vs Barcelona

good luck guys
this rivalry is played with good intensity hope it continues
+2
hopefully it's a controversy free cracker of a game. hope you lose ofc, but should be fun
+2
It can go either way, tactical wise we already lost it, unless Messi or Suarez shows their individual brilliance to win it for us
MSN is spot-on....After doing well against AM in both legs i feel its 50-50 right now and only reason Barca could have upper hand is Individual brilliance factor. While we only have Hazard to do that Barca have Messi , Suarez , Demebele , Iniesta etc etc etc lol!
Tactical Conte is superior
But rest Barca are superior

I hope there will be no injuries and the best team win

+2
Your hoping for Injuries? Seriously? I hope its a typo.
+1
There will be no * injuries
+1
oops my bad
yeap, let the best team win, it could go either way, both teams are loaded , it will be very tactical match, I just hope the ref don't ruin what should be a great matchup ( this should have been a semi-final or final clash )
+1
i'm very worried of Suarez, he has a knack of scoring against us and he loves to nutmeg our geezer :(
That's why I'm glad his form is bad
That's why I'm glad there is still 2 months to go :)

Also gives dembele sometime to get back in and gel up with the team
IF Hazard, Fabregas, Willian performs u will ve no chance, but ofc depends on all the Chelsea players not only those 3

P.S @DrogbaLampard thats all Suarez knows to nutmeg players but guess what our players can do the same
@Dorru

"IF Hazard, Fabregas, Willian performs u will ve no chance, but ofc depends on all the Chelsea players not only those 3"

I have been watching you Chelsea fans being over-confident on getting us. But I am actually waiting for the time when Messi, Suarez, Iniesta, Busquets, Dembele, Alba, Roberto, Semedo will RUN OVER AND ROLL YOUR TEAM. Don't extrapolate our upcoming fixtures with history. You won us by luck and Bayern as well to one UCL in your entire history. Don't dare to compare our legacy with yours. Ours is orders of magnitude higher than yours! Remember this FACT!

+2
dude stop doing drugs lol, u will see, ur team is just hype as Real M and Bayern M bc of your history as club

You rem 2009 semis ? hm should have been 5-0 for Chelsea ONLY from the PENS ungiven, luck have nothing to do with 2012 semis man you need to understand football before saying that

Its impossible to have luck 3 UCL games ag big clubs

By the way ur team didnt impress me as players, imo Chelsea have much better players
Again I say I think u are deluded bc of the barcelona history in ucl but rem when u played us u ve ZERO HISTORY, Messi 9 matches ag CHELSEA = ZERO goals (doesnt matter how Chelsea strategy was), the reality is that ur "god" Messi didnt scored 1 goal in 9 matches ag Chelsea, that is saying all my friend, I think he knows that Chelsea is better than his team thats why he didnt scored lol
To be honest I think Messi is frustrated every time he plays ag the mighty Chelsea

Doesnt matter how much possesion u ve IF u ve 0 chances, if u ve possesion doesnt mean u are the best club itw but to understand this u need to see the football better, better vision

P.S : you can replay if u want but I dont think I will see ur comment bc its a waste of time to start an arguing fight, I said my opinion and point, I wont argue anymore.
You are an immature Chelsea fan. Barcelona is thousands of times more prestigious than your team bought by Russian mafias. Just because Messi has not scored against Chelsea doesn't mean he is normal. LOL. I laugh when people state this as if Chelsea is a benchmark to calibrate him. First, learn our history because you don't have any. Period.

BTW, I am waiting for the time when BARCELONA ROLLS your small team. Be scared, very scared!
guys save it for February lol
Saved it. :D
"Don't dare to compare our legacy with yours. Ours is orders of magnitude higher than yours! Remember this FACT!"

"BTW, I am waiting for the time when BARCELONA ROLLS OVER your small team. Be scared, very scared!"

You're a legend.
+3
Does anyone get the feeling like they're both the same person? lol
+2
@Hikmat: You need to act as a child to talk to a child. Hence, the comments. lol. BTW, don't you agree that our history is much richer than Chelsea's history? You have to.

@Andresandmessi: No way, I am not that kiddo. lol.



+2
What does history have to do with the initial argument?
It's pretty easy to say that IF Hazard, Fabregas, and Willian perform, Barca have no chance, but the same can be said IF Messi, Suarez, and (hopefully) Dembele perform, Chelsea will have no chance. More importantly for Barca, IF Busquets and Umtiti perform, it will be very hard for Chelsea to score. Ter Stegen has also been playing very well lately. The point is both teams have pretty serious weapons. I think having a player like Paulinho (should he play and perform well) will make a difference for us. Just like Kante will make a difference for Chelsea. It's a pretty interesting match up and the Barcelona and Chelsea teams that played each other in 2009 and 2012 don't exist anymore so that's irrelevant. History doesn't matter in this context.
+3
Let the players talk on field...Just chill and wait for the big game guys
Both our sets of fans didn't have so much arrogance even during our peak years. Funny watching all this bragging when both of us are struggling 😂
@ barca048, actually hikmat isn't acting like child, he is child,lol.

Apart from of it, let's stop this, we have two full months to see which team gonna run over and roll over other, just chill.
+1
@4ever, it appears so. haha
+1
Lol when did I hurt you, 4ever? Let's talk it over or something.

@barca048, I called you a legend. Give that title back if you're gonna be so rude about it, smh.
@Hikmat: Go bark on your forum, not here!
*meow*
+1
@Hikmat, you are few comments away from being banned. So, be careful about what you wish for. ;)
@hikmath, nothing personal,lol. Seen your sneaky remarks here and there, so I just dig in it :)
I swear to god if anybody blames Rakitic for when we tie or lose this game and not say anything about Suarez, I'm personally gonna reach through their phone and smack them one.

Suarez offers ZERO! Nil, Nada, 0, s**t all. He's been utter f*****g garbage. Can't do link up play, can't do one twos and to top it all off he's always f*****g offside.

Please just somebody please tell me how Paco can do worse than Suarez right now? It's not even fun watching our games anymore. Besides Messi, no one else can do s**t.
+1
But I haven't seen anything what rakitic offers either tho
+1
Suarez only plays these days because he is best friends with Messi. Sad truth
Rakitic doesn't offer s**t I get that. But at least he can make a pass (even if it's all back passes) and he can at least somewhat tackle. Not defending Rakitic at all but Suarez literally offers nothing. If you can name me one good thing Suarez does, I will shut up.

I hope he f*****g proves me wrong and scores a screamer or a tap in or make a proper run or even test the keeper.
+1
He can't, I'm afraid. His touch has always been average and it's poor there days. Also, he has lost a lot of his speed and hence is always offside. We will have to replace him in January if we want to win anything this season.
Haha he just heard ya! Nice goal!
What a player.....LOL
Haha, and then he did *that*.

Wonderful positioning, great one-two and amazing agility and quick feet.
+1
Wow. Jeroen that's story of his life except now he only does "that". I'm happy that he scored and maybe I should curse him out during every game?
