Willian still confident of beating Barcelona

Chelsea winger Willian is still confident of beating Barcelona, and qualifying for the Champions League quarter finals, despite drawing the first leg on Tuesday night.

The Brazilian scored the opening goal of the game at Stamford Bridge in Tuesday night after 62 minutes, only to see his effort cancelled out out 13 minutes later by Lionel Messi.

That goal puts the Catalan side in the driving seat in the tie, leaving Chelsea having to beat the La Liga leaders or score at least twice in order to go through.

However, despite being second favourites to qualify, Willian still believes that he and his teammates can get the result that they need to progress to next round. Speaking after the game, he said:

“I think it’s still open.

“I thought we deserved the win today. We have to go there and play the same game.”
