Chelsea will host Barcelona on Monday in the first leg of a UEFA Champions League round of 16 tie. These two teams last met in the Champions.

The Belgium international, who has scored 15 goals in 35 appearances across all competitions for Chelsea this season, has been among the most consistent performers in the Premier League and across Europe since moving to Stamford Bridge in 2012.
His impressive performances have led some to suggest that the 27-year-old has the potential to be as impactful as the five-time Ballon d’Or winners.
“First it is good to be compared with the greatest ever, but I am completely different,” Hazard told reporters.
Hazard also played down persistent media reports linking him with a move to join Ronaldo at Real Madrid, saying he was happy at Chelsea.
The Premier League champions host Barcelona in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie later on Tuesday, with their last win against the Spanish side coming in 2012.
