Conte: “We have to be ready to suffer”

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte believes his team could have a chance to beat Barcelona tomorrow night at Camp Nou, but the Blues have to make no mistake if they want to go through the Champions League quarter finals. 

We must be very good but when you play against this type of team, which I think is one of the best in the world, you must be prepared to suffer, in the same way we did in the first leg, where we were almost perfect,” Conte told the club’s official website. “This is not a (Chelsea) team with great experience, we have a lot of players who are playing their first or second season in the Champions League. But we have to work as a team and try to be ready to suffer the moments we have to suffer, and in every moment we have to know that we can have a chance to score.“Given our opponents’ ability to dominate possession, especially on home soil, we will also need to show plenty of patience and concentration in waiting for our opportunities and making the most of them when they arrive,”
