Dragging the sensational 2017-18 season forward it’s time that the Blaugranas face one of the season defining challenge against Chelsea.
Despite a not so good track record against Chelsea, Barca are the favourites for the Champions League Round of 16 clash. The major key to Barcelona’s success would be Philippe Coutinho’s experience at Stamford Bridge.
Featuring a dozen times against the Blues, he has scored twice and provided an assist. Not being on the winning side so frequently won’t deny his know-how of what it takes to win or lose against Chelsea.
In his 12 appearances, he has won twice, drawn 6 and lost 4, but his last performance against the Blues would raise the expectations of many Barcelona fans where he scored a sensational goal. There is also a high possibility that Valverde might have his plans around the mesmerizing Brazilian Coutinho.
