Chelsea captain, Gary Cahill has said that the Blues an defeat Barcelona again in the Champions League when they clash on Wednesday. Chelsea defeated the Spanish giants in 2012 after coming from behind to play 2-2 in the first leg and progressing 3-2 on aggregates.
The Premier League club had played a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge in the first leg of the encounter.
“Chelsea are being written off but it is the nature of the beast,” Cahill told Standard Sport.
“If you’re looking at facts, this club has been very, very successful over the last 10 years, and since I have been here over the past six years.
“You can have ups and downs. I can speak about myself and when I have been down I have bounced back. The same goes for the club.
“Let’s go there with confidence we can put in a good show and do the best we possibly can to get through to the next round.
“It’s poised nicely. We’ve got one game to try to go through against world-class opposition. We know it’s going to be tough but we’re ready for the challenge.”
Chelsea went past Barcelona to ultimately lift the Champions League after beating Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena in 2012.
