Fabregas: “Chelsea can compete with Barcelona in Nou Camp mission”

by -

Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has warned his teammates ahead of next Champions League trip to Nou Camp, where the Blues will face Barcelona on 14th March.

The Spaniard, who left La Liga giants in 2014, told BT Sports: “It is such a shame really, I thought we were very good, we executed the game plan really well, we were compact, solid, played as a team and created lots of chances – Willian could have had a hat-trick – but we go home sad because a fantastic performance is not a fantastic result”.

“It is still open though and we and we will need another excellent performance at the Nou Camp to go through”.

Chelsea were dominant against Barcelona, before conceding a goal late in the second half: “You have to have a lot of personality to play against this team who has 70% of the ball. We have to go there to attack and score because 90 minutes defending at the Nou Camp is an eternity, it is a suicide mission. We have to play our game.”
