VIDEO: Chelsea 1 – 1 Barcelona [Champions League] Highlights 2017/18
Barcelona dug out from a deficit after Willian’s strike placed Chelsea in front, Lionel Messi scoring his first historic goal against the Blues.
Lionel Messi scored out of the blue against Chelsea as Barcelona dug out from a deficit to take a key away goal into the second leg of their last-16 Champions League tie.
Willian hit the post twice however at long last found the net with what seemed to be the triumphant goal, just for Messi to score without precedent for six games to gain a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday, leaving the game finely adjusted.
Chelsea and Barca were confronting each other for the thirteenth time in the Champions League, reestablishing their contention after a great semi-last conflict in 2012, and for a significant part of the challenge there was nothing between the sides in spite of Barca’s inescapable strength of the ball.
Barcelona had 75 for every penny ownership in the first half yet the Catalans were maybe blessed to go into half-time level, Willian having been denied by the woodwork on two events.
He calibrated his radar after the interim, in any case, rifling home into Ter Stegen’s base left corner to give Chelsea the lead.
Messi had different thoughts, however, profiting by messy Chelsea defending to space in from Andres Iniesta’s attack to give Barca a restricted preferred standpoint in front of the second leg on March 14.
