Cue The Music…Champions League Preview
The first leg of the Round of 16 is upon us and Barcelona will travel to London to play Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. Oh baby…we heart Champions League so much, especially when we are playing Chelsea. Chelsea are not playing that well in their league but Champions League is a different animal. Chelsea is revolving door of manager/player drama, this year is no different. Conte is begging to be fired and the team has been underperforming. Which player scares you the most? It has to be Eden Hazard for me. It’s also worth noting that this Chelsea side have two former Barcelona players, my favorite being Pedro. Brien was sad to see him go, and of course he left because he wasn’t getting playing with Neymar on the team, and then we lost Neymar. Brien thinks that we’ve been ultimately better for losing him, but I’m more broken up about having lost Pedro in the middle of it all. Cesc, I like, but he’s better off on a Premier League side.
