Chelsea captain Gary Cahill has said the Blues will confront Barcelona like beasts in their Champions League round of 16 second-leg clash.

Barca are favourites to advance to the quarter-finals after securing a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge in the first leg last month.

However, a goalless draw will be enough to see Chelsea through to the last eight.

And Cahill believes they can get the job done at Nou Camp.

“Chelsea are being written off but it is the nature of the beast,” the Chelsea skipper told Standard Sport.

“If you’re looking at facts, this club has been very, very successful over the last 10 years, and since I have been here over the past six years.

“You can have ups and downs. I can speak about myself and when I have been down I have bounced back. The same goes for the club.

“Let’s go there with confidence we can put in a good show and do the best we possibly can to get through to the next round.

“It’s poised nicely. We’ve got one game to try to go through against world-class opposition. We know it’s going to be tough but we’re ready for the challenge.”
