Messi breaks hoodoo to leave tie in the balance

The forward's longest goal drought against any opponent ended after 730 minutes when Chelsea was made to pay for a rare slip in concentration after successfully containing the Spanish club's threat.

Antonio Conte's players were bold enough to take the game to Barcelona and created enough chances to win the game.

We have to try to have the perfect game, the perfect game to try to make the best decisions.

Conte, though, said he welcomed the pressure of the Champions League stage and the challenge of what he described as "one of the best teams in the world".

The play followed a similar pattern at the start of the second half, with Barcelona bossing the ball but hitting a wall in the final third.

Willian hit the post twice but finally found the net with what looked to be the winning goal, only for Messi to score for the first time in six games to earn a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge, leaving the clash finely balanced.

John Terry and Ricardo Carvalho both managed to keep a lid on Messi during previous encounters, while Branislav Ivanovic man-marked the Argentinian out of the game in the last meeting between the two sides. It may also be streamed through the MUTV App and the UEFA Champions League App, according to the Live Soccer website. When you play against Barcelona you know very well that, if you want to face them box-to-box, you are crazy. Chelsea have been more than underwhelming in their Premier League title defence this season.

Swedish referee Anders Frisk went into early retirement in 2005 when he was accused by then Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho of conspiring with Frank Rijkaard. "Two very different teams". Sometimes you are able to, sometimes you are not, but your idea must be this. "I intend to respect my contract, but both parties need to be happy". They had taken the lead, playing with discipline and ambition and it was shaping up to be one of those occasions when, frankly, it felt ludicrous that Antonio Conte is widely assumed to be on his way out. "In the end it came from an error from them and we took advantage", said Barca coach Ernesto Valverde.

"Tonight, I do not remember a save from Thibaut [Courtois]". They had the one chance in the first half with Paulinho and then the second half with [Luis] Suarez.

"Last year we didn't play Champions League, but this year we are back and I played a few good games: Atletico Madrid away, Roma, and here against Madrid". We are the champions of England.

A little shimmy gave him the opening and he then produced a wonderful low curling strike into the bottom corner, with Marc-Andre Ter Stegen not even moving.
