Champions League: Conte reveals why Chelsea vs Barcelona ended in a draw


Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte, has explained why the club failed to hold on to Willian’s second half strike against Barcelona on Tuesday night.

Confusion in Chelsea’s defense gave the Catalan giants the much needed away goal when Lionel Messi struck in 75th minute.

But Conte felt his side would have won the game if not for the mistake by young defender, Christensen.

He told BT Sports, “I think that we were very close to the perfect game. I think only one mistake.

“As you know very well when you make a mistake against Barcelona, against players like Messi, Suarez and Iniesta, you have to pay.

“It’s a pity, it’s a pity because I’m very proud of my players. They followed the plan we prepared for playing Barca.

“It’s a pity also because I think tonight we were a bit unlucky.”
