FC BARCELONA has defeated 3 - 0 CHELSEA FC taking the tie 4-1 on aggregate & goes into the Quarter-final phase of the UEFA Champions League joining fellow Spanish Clubs Real Madrid & Sevilla FC. 

FC Barcelona - Chelsea FC

The victory was earned & deserved by Barça with Chelsea FC not being able to culminate their hard worked & elaborated opportunities. In fact, Chelsea FC was not at the level expected & needed at this stage of the competition. The English team were shook very early by two goals, MESSI in the 3rd min & DEMBELE in the 20th min, but managed to work themselves but in the midfield to create opportunities that were never converted in the crucial moments.

They English needed to score 2 goals to take the tie & went into the second half focused. Earlier they hit the post from a Marcos Alonso free-lick, claimed a penalty on a foul committed on Alonso in the 51st min (not a penalty) & the same player had clear goal shots stopped by Barça defenders on trajectory on two ocassions. Chelsea FC forward Willian was perhaps their best player & his speedy attacks & creations were either not understood by fellow team-mates or neutralized by Barça players.

In the 63rd min MESSI scored his second (100th in Champions League) & third for Barça too shut the door firmly on Chelsea FC. The English Coach Conte gave Morata, Zappacosta & Pedro a run to attempt at least a consolation goal, but the wind was pushed out of their sails previously with the 3rd goal by Barça. 

Too much class & experience on FC Barcelona´s side as another English Club gets eliminated from the competition.

Next Friday UEFA will celebrated the Quarter-Finals team match-ups ay Nyon. Looking forward to see how that turns out.
