There are plenty of old rivalries and scores to be settled when Chelsea host Barcelona in the Champions League on Tuesday night. These two teams have been involved in some epic battles over the past two decades with Chelsea eliminating Barcelona three times and Barcelona inflicting the same fate upon The Blues twice. One of the most famous meetings between the two sides occurred in 2009 when Andres Iniesta scored a last gasp goal to send Barcelona through. That goal sparked a whole host of anger and aggression amongst the Chelsea players with Didier Drogba calling the referee a disgrace after he turned down a number of Chelsea penalty appeals.
These two teams have been enjoying vastly different campaigns this time around with Barcelona leading La Liga by seven points, whilst Chelsea are languishing down in fourth place in the Premier League after winning the title last season. There have been plenty of murmurs of discontent from within the Chelsea camp, with manager Antonio Conte widely expected to leave at the end of the season. New signing Olivier Giroud will be hoping to make an impact against Barcelona on Tuesday night after an excellent display in Chelsea’s FA Cup win over Hull City.
