Chelsea vs Barcelona
So i'm a Chelsea fan, and will be rooting for the boys in blue (obviously), but what's your views?
Here's some background on this match in the previous meetings between the sides:
They've played each other 10 times in the champions league, 13 times in total. Barca have won 5 times, Chelsea 4, and there have been 4 draws.
At Stamford Bridge Barcelona have only won 1, drawn 1, and lost 4 times.
When the sides have met in the knock out stages of the Champions League, Barca have gone through 3 times, Chelsea only once.
More people across the world will be rooting for Chelsea, being the underdogs, but not everyone. Ask any Chelsea fan if they like Barcelona and they'll say no. This fixture is one with serious rivalry across European football, especially since the second leg of the champions league semi final of 2009:
Blatant cheating by Barca, making me, and 99% of other Chelsea fans now hate them.
Anyway, who do you want to win, who do you think will win, what do you think the score will be tonight, and who do you think will go through to the final?
I'm rooting Chelsea, predicting a 2-1 with goals from Drogba, Mata and Iniesta, but i think Barcalona will go on to win the tie, and the Champions league :'(
