Conte ahead of Barcelona: “We’ve to stay in the game and be concentrated to go through”

Speaking ahead of Barcelona clash at Camp Nou tomorrow Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has claimed that his players must be prepared to “suffer”.

The first leg at Stamford Bridge ended in a 1-1 draw meaning the Blues must find a way of getting on the scoresheet tomorrow night:

“When I speak about suffer, every team must prepare to suffer their possession because they like to dominate the game and play between the lines. For this reason, there must be great concentration to be compact and to suffer. We have to defend well and with the ball we must know the way to go straight, in the same way at Stamford Bridge.

“About the plan, the first leg we had a plan and the final result wasn’t a good result for us. 1-1 means we have to score if we want to go to the next round.

 “We have to stay in the game, but it won’t be easy. If we want to go into the next round we must pay into the game in every moment of it.”

Chelsea have avoided defeat on their last four visits to Camp Nou.
