UEFA Champions League Prediction Chelsea – Barcelona
Chelsea is ranked 4th in the Premier League, with 53 points in 27 championship games. Belgian Eden Hazard is the team’s top scorer in the championship, and has managed to score 11 times so far. The hosts have alternating evolutions in the championship. After a 4-1 defeat on the Watford field, the Londoners managed a 3-0 victory over their own, 3-0 in front of West Brom. A few days ago, England’s former champion was successful in the England Cup, 4-0 in front of Hull. Antonio Conte can not count on David Luiz and Ross Barkley in this duel, which have some medical problems.
Courtois – Cahill, Christensen, Azpilicueta – Alonso, Fabregas, Kante, Drinkwater, Moses – Hazard – Morata
On the other side, Barcelona is ranked first in the league’s first league in Spain, with the team managing to gather 62 points after 24 rounds. Argentinean Lionel Messi is the best scorer in the championship, with 20 goals scored so far. The guests are in a modest form in the championship, with only one success registered in the last 3 games. After two draws with Espanyol and Getafe, the Catalans succeeded the previous stage of a success on the field at Eibar, score 2-0. Barcelona managed to advance in the Spanish Cup final this month, after a 3-0 victory over Valencia. Nelson Semedo is suspended for this move, while Philippe Coutinho is not allowed to play.

Chelsea – Barcelona UEFA Champions League
The two teams met last season 2012-2013, when Chelsea eliminates Barcelona in the semi-finals and wins the UEFA Champions League. Barcelona has a sensational season after the SuperCupa in August 2017, with a single defeat in all competitions, a 1-0 on the Espanyol court in the Spanish Cup. On the other hand, Chelsea has a much more modest season than the previous, but it should not be underestimated. I’m looking forward to a nice game on both sides, so my predictions are purely goal-based.
