Chelsea defender and captain Gary Cahill was crucial in 2012 when the Blues eliminated Barcelona, before winning the UEFA Champions League trophy against Bayern Munich at Allianz ArenA.
The England defender, who featured alongside David Luiz in Munich, told Chelsea’s official website: “In a weird way I kind of expected it, there were only three options so it was quite a likely outcome. It will be a very tough game but it’s a great fixture to look forward to, both for us as players and the supporters”.
“It’s a very difficult tie but hugely exciting for everybody. We have good memories from the last time we played them and obviously we went on to win the trophy”.
Then he reminded: “We beat them 1-0 at home and then held them away, that famous game at the Nou Camp, so they’re great memories”.
“This stands alone, two big games. They’re a tough opponent but I’m sure they will be looking at us in the same way”.
