Chelsea and Barcelona played out an exciting 1-1 draw in the UEFA Champions League match at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night.

Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas admitted before the game that he won’t remember his friendship with his old teammates and pals on the pitch until the game is over.

The Spaniard enjoyed a post-match catch-up with former Barcelona teammate Lionel Messi after Tuesday’s Champions League draw and they both exchanged jerseys.

The two players were pictured in the Stamford Bridge tunnel after the match enjoying a chat and even swapped jerseys.

Fabregas and Messi came out through the famous La Masia academy and were teammates after Fabregas left Arsenal for Barca.

The pair have remained friends ever since and even spent last summer in Ibiza, and Fabregas was at Messi’s intimate wedding ceremony.
