Conte sends urgent message to Barcelona as the Catalans host Chelsea in Champions League battle (preview, kick off time)

- Barcelona will face Chelsea on Wednesday night in the Champions League

- The first leg of their round of 16 clash ended 1-1 at Stamford Bridge

Camp Nou will on Wednesday night, March 14, be the center of attraction for all football fans in the world as it is the venue where Barcelona will host Chelsea.

The Spanish club will go head to head with their much heralded Blues opponents in the second leg of their Champions League round of 16 tie.

Argentine superstar Lionel Messi saved Barcelona from a defeat in the first tie at Stamford Bridge which ended 1-1.

The last time Chelsea were at the Camp Nou in 2012, the Blues eliminated Barcelona out of the Champions League before going to win the title in Germany.

This time around, Antonio Conte's men don't need to be told that they must score at the Camp Nou for them to have any chance of reaching the quarter final.

But Chelsea coach Antonio Conte believes his wards can send Barcelona out of the 2017/18 Champions League in front of their own fans.

"It's a fantastic stadium with a big pitch and I think that every single player must be excited playing this type of game.

''A lot of my players have never played in this stadium. This is the first time and we want to do our best.

''In the first leg we played a really good game and almost a perfect game against a team I consider one of the best in the world.

''The final result for the first leg gives a great advantage to Barcelona. We know their philosophy will be to win the game and we have to try to do our best, have great concentration and keep our heads." Conte explained according to Sky Sports.

Meanwhile, Barcelona midfielder Andres Iniesta could return from a hamstring problem which will be assessed in the hours before kick-off.

Chelsea on the other hand will be without midfielder Ross Barkley and center-back David Luiz with injury, although other than those two, Conte has a full squad to select from.

Kick off time for this match at the Camp Nou is 8.45 pm Nigerian time.
