The Blues are looking to appear in their second successive Champions League final but will have to deal with the attacking prowess of Barca who will be hopeful of wrapping up the tie in the first leg itself by securing a big win over their English rivals.
The Catalan giants hold a slight upper hand in the previous meetings between the two teams with Barcelona twice knocking out Chelsea from the competition including a 3-2 aggregate win in the knockout round during the 2004-05 season. Barcelona coach Josep Guardiola will be hoping to emulate the performance of the 1999-00 team which had thrashed Chelsea 5-1 at home in the first leg, a result that saw them qualify to the semi finals of the tournament even though they lost the second leg 3-1.
Chelsea will have to be at their defensive best in both the legs if they are to have any hopes of making it to the final with Barcelona being the highest scorers in the competition this season with 29 goals so far.
However the Blues will be fielding a makeshift defense in the first leg with Ashley Cole being suspended for the clash. Manager Guus Hiddink said that he will be fielding Jose Bosingwa in the left back position should the Portuguese defender prove his fitness with Michael Mancienne waiting in the wings.
Ricardo Carvalho is also out of action after suffering a hamstring injury during a reserves game on Friday which would mean Alex being paired with John Terry in the centre of the defense.
