Video: Antonio Conte Admits He’s Had Sleepless Nights Over Facing Barcelona

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is preparing to face Barcelona this evening in the Champions League and the Italian admits he’s been struggling to get a good night’s sleep since the draw was made.

The Spanish superstars are in London for the last-16 first-leg at Stamford Bridge, and are big favourites to progress to the quarter-finals at the expense of the Premier League champions.

Given the Blues boasts talents like Eden Hazard and Cesc Fabregas, you’d think there wouldn’t be too many teams the Chelsea manager would be scared of, but it turns out the men from the Nou Camp do a pretty good job of keeping him up at night, as he explained during his pre-match press conference:

 

Barcelona are a whopping 31 matches undefeated going into tonight’s fixture, so perhaps Conte is right to be losing sleep over stopping Messi and co.

But Chelsea actually have a decent track record against Barcelona, so who do you think will progress?
