In 2006, it was a trip to Camp Nou in the last-16 for Chelsea and they secured a positive result on the night, with Frank Lampard’s 90th minute penalty cancelling out Ronaldinho’s opening goal. But it was all in vain, as the Blues were knocked out by a 3-2 aggregate score line. Barca had won the first-leg at Stamford Bridge 2-1, and they restricted Chelsea to few chances during the return fixture. Didier Drogba, Joe Cole and Hernan Crespo had rare opportunities to score, but Lampard’s penalty was the only real threat the Blues proposed.

Chelsea visit Barcelona tonight knowing they will have to put in a top class performance to progress to the Champions League quarter-finals.
The match, which is LIVE on talkSPORT, pits Antonio Conte’s side against one of the best teams in Europe – with the Blues needing to score.
The first-leg tie at Stamford Bridge finished in a 1-1 draw, with Lionel Messi’s equaliser, in response to Willian’s opening goal, securing Barca a valuable away goal.
Tonight, Chelsea either need to win to progress to the next round of Europe’s premier competition, or the match has to end in a 2-2 or higher draw – that result will send the Blues through on away goals.
This is the seventh time Chelsea will have visited Camp Nou in the Champions League, and how have they performed in the previous visits to Catalonia?
