Chelsea were very dangerous on the break against Barcelona in the first leg at Stamford Bridge. The game however ended 1-1 which gave Barcelona the advantage courtesy of a Lionel Messi equaliser.

Barcelona defender Jordi Alba has admitted that he expects Chelsea to use similar tactics and try to hurt his team on the break.

“We expect Chelsea to play as [they did] in the first leg,” he said. “[Which is holding] the team back and seek the counter attacks to do damage.

“It will be a very difficult game. It’s a very good season [for Barcelona] and we look forward to the tie against Chelsea.

“We hope to get through and then face what’s coming.”
