‘Chelsea can stop Barcelona, but not Messi’



Former Argentine midfielder Gaizka Mendieta believes that Chelsea stand a chance against Barcelona, though it will be difficult to combat Blaugrana’s sheer amount individual talent.
“You cannot stop Messi. You can stop Barcelona but Messi is difficult. If you try to stop Messi, then you have Iniesta. Then, you also have Suarez, there is so much individual talent in the team.

“Do Chelsea have a chance? Yes, of course. They have shown before that in football anything can happen. They played against Barcelona and defended really well, which wasn’t easy.

“In my opinion, playing at Camp Nou will be difficult. I cannot see Barcelona not scoring. We have seen few matches this season where they haven’t scored so hopefully they will score and go through.”
