Eden Hazard has revealed the one thing Chelsea must do to avoid a humiliating result against Barcelona in the Champions League on Tuesday.
The Blues will welcome the former European champions to Stamford Bridge in the first leg of the round of 16 tie and know a slow start to the tie will mean disaster and a possible exit from the competition.
Chelsea will face an in form Barcelona, yet to lose in the competition this season, as well as in La Liga.
Their pragmatic approach has led to a very sustainable form in all competitions and could pull surprises on Chelsea, tactically. But one thing is expected though, Ernesto Valverde’s side will attack.
That might scare Chelsea fans, but for Hazard, he and his teammates must defend as a team, in order to stand a chance against one of the best attacking teams in world football.
Hazard on Barca "First of all we need to defend as a team. If we don´t defend as a team we are in trouble. We have to defend together."
