Lionel Messi took advantage of a defensive mistake to score a vital away goal for Barcelona in the 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday.

The second leg takes place at Nou Camp on the 14th of March but Chelsea Vice-captain Cesar Azpilicueta believes his team can scale through despite the advantage Barca hold.

“The away goal obviously gives them a small advantage because with a 0-0 they go through, but it is what it is,” Azpilicueta said.

“There is still a lot to play for and it will be an interesting game, we know it’s going to be tough but our performance showed what we are capable of doing and we will try our best to qualify.

“We have to play a perfect game, we know we are playing against very good players in a tough stadium but we are confident and we will try to qualify.”
