Barcelona’s Ernesto Valverde has revealed the Chelsea star he fears the most and it’s not Hazard
Barcelona manger Ernesto Valverde is wary of Alvaro Morata’s impact when his side take on Chelsea in the Champions League.
The two sides have been drawn against each-other on Monday’s draw, much for the delight of football fans who have witnessed some entertaining clashes whenever these two giants have met.
Valverde is under no illusion of the size of the task facing his side, and pinpoints Morata as a key player for the Blues as they bid to make the last eight.
“It’s a tough draw for us because of the magnitude of the opposition,” he said.
“Chelsea are champions of the Premier League but we’re excited about the tie, even though it will be difficult. Chelsea are a strong and physical team, with a clear tactical system in place.
“They take advantage of the physical nature of the Premier League well.
“With the signing of Morata they’ve added pace in attack, while (Eden) Hazard is very good between the lines.”
The first match will take place at Stamford Bridge on 20’th February, while the return leg will be played at Camp Nou on March 14’th. //Actuantes//
