One of the huge matches of this CL round. Perhaps the biggest, considering the position each club has in their dometic league table at the moment.

Talking points

-Robben will not be availible. This weakens Chelsea quite a bit, considering the world class play Robben was providing.

- Chelsea's strong defense with possession play, vs. Barca's possession attacking play.

Key for Chelsea is to score a goal or 2, and not losing by more than 1 goal if it comes to that.

POLARIS AMDE A THREAD!?? GIVE THE MAN A PRIZE :)!

Drogba will be back, Mourinho is saving him.

I'm wondering whether Carvalhowill be back. I'd probs keep it as it is with Bridgey at left back, he can whip in nice balls for the Drogs against Barca's weak defence.

It'll be tough. I just hope we're still in the match when it comes back to Stamford Bridge.

Carvalho is back already, he played last week for a while already. it would be a really tough match, especially now without Robben :(

Carvalho only came on at 90 minutes though. I assume he will play vs. Newcastle.

Word now is Drogba is not fit. Big talk in the Barca forum about it.

Well, look at the line-up for the Newcastle. No Lamps, no JT, hopefully JM withdraws Maka too.

Hold the midfield, don't let them play too close to goal. Should work.

Jason? I saw that as well, its a mistake... he is suspended against Newcastle in the FA cup. Or at least I think so. :)

I think it'll be a draw this week.

No one looks like thay can score against Chelsea this season! There is only one team that can score against them and score a bunch of goals, and that is Barca

Barca is going through and winning the UCL this season

No, this has not been confirmed.

We can do without Gallas, Jonhson-Carv-Terry-Ferreira. Duff is essential tho.

Great news for us, even though whoever plays will do just fine.
But these injuries make the job a hell of a lot easier.

With or without the injured players Chelsea is going to lose in BOTH matches
