Chelsea FC boss Antonio Conte says loss to FC Barcelona 'unfair'

"I played against Messi a lot of times, I have already conceded goals like that before".

By comparison, it took Cristiano Ronaldo a whopping 790 shots (and 14 more games) to reach his 100.

Messi then took the referee to one side and according to ESPN, the Argentine said: 'You don't speak badly to me.'I didn't disrespect you, did I?'

Conte, having thanked his own players for their efforts, sought out the opposition forward at the final whistle to express admiration at his display as they departed the turf.

"These other players that we are talking about don't". The best in the world.

The Blaugrana faithful unveiled the epic banner just before kick-off on Wednesday night, with the words "Long Live The King" and an iconic picture of Messi celebrating last year's 6-1 win over PSG emblazoned across the almost 50-foot tifo. The hosts also stayed in contention for a rare treble of titles.

Chelsea are also fifth in the Premier League, four points behind fourth-placed Tottenham with eight games remaining. It is now in fifth place.

Meanwhile, Bayern won 3-1 in Turkey to confirm Besiktas' exit, with Thiago Alcantara among the goalscorers in Istanbul.

Conte's team had chances.

However, Barcelona got off to the flawless start in this game when, with less than three minutes played, they took the lead.

"Our attacking play goes through him and any move is improved by his touch".

That ability to know exactly what his teammates need was clear when Messi swooped in to steal the ball from Fabregas in midfield and charged toward the box. Despite it being a very impossible angle to score, he ended up making it possible by nutmegging Thibaut Courtois for the opening goal.

The 33-year-old came through the youth system at Barca, has made over 400 appearances for the club and signed a "lifetime contract" with the club in October.

Boss Antonio Conte has come under mounting pressure at the club amid reports he will be axed at the end of the season.

"Now we have this possibility to reach for another time the semi-final". If an error is made and Messi is around, it will likely get punished. "A fantastic player moved the final result, moved the qualification over the two legs", the Italian said.
