Andriy Shevchenko makes Chelsea FC prediction ahead of FC Barcelona clash
Andriy Shevchenko insists Chelsea FC still have a chance of beating FC Barcelona in the Champions League
Andriy Shevchenko has insisted that Chelsea FC still have a chance of reaching the quarter-finals of the Champions League at the expense of FC Barcelona.
The Blues are aiming to knock out the Spanish giants and book their place in the last eight of Europe’s elite club competition as they bid to turn around what has been an inconsistent season so far.
Chelsea FC took the lead in the first leg at Stamford Bridge last month thanks to Willian’s goal, but their strike was cancelled out moments later when Lionel Messi drilled home a leveller in west London.
The 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge leaves the tie finely poised ahead of the return leg at Camp Nou on Wednesday 14 March.
However, former Chelsea FC star Shevchenko seems to think that the Blues do indeed have a good chance of being able to reach the quarter-finals of the Champions League by beating FC Barcelona.
Shevchenko is quoted as saying by iNews: “It’s a difficult moment for Chelsea but they still have a chance to qualify for the next step of the Champions League, the Barcelona game is still open.
“You just need to get some results and everything changes quickly.”
Meanwhile, Chelsea FC will now switch their attentions back towards Premier League affairs and their home clash against Crystal Palace in the top flight at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening.
The west Londoners are currently in fifth place in the table as they bid to break back into the top four before the season is out.
