Cesar Azpilicueta: 'Lionel Messi the difference'


"The first goal, I did not expect Lionel Messi to shoot from that angle and I was too late in closing my legs".

Conte also admitted that he felt compelled to compliment Messi on his top class display. "On Sunday I will try to make the best decision because we want to go to the next round", Conte stated. Not only for one season.

"He's a player who can change the final result for any team he is playing in".

"Iniesta won a lot in his career and Hazard has to start to win important trophies in his career. This type of player is born once in 50 years".

"These other players that we talk about don't".

"We hit the post four times", he added.

Conte approached Messi after the final whistle.

Messi scored his 99th and 100th Champions League goals against on Wednesday night.

The first leg games are on April 3 and April 4, with the return games on April 10 and April 11. "It was a mistake on my part", said Courtois. In between, he teed up Ousmane Dembele for his first Barcelona goal. From the edge of the box, Messi supplied Dembele with an incredible ball.

Chelsea star Cesar Azpilicueta has come to the defence of under fire team-mate Alvaro Morata and insisted that he has the confidence of the squad.

"This is a great story for Barcelona and Messi". "There's no guarantee that he's going to score, but he is a fantastic player".

"Leicester is a good team".

"We're lucky enough to be seeing something that will go down in history".

Iniesta has been linked with Tianjin Quanjian, although the Chinese Super League club declared the rumors "false" this week and threatened legal action to stamp them out.

On the other hand, Roma director of football Monchi minced no words when he said that his side had got the most hard draw possible. "He will be out for approximately three weeks", said a club statement on Thursday.

Chelsea face Leicester City in the FA Cup quarterfinals at the King Power Stadium on Sunday, but the final eight matches of the Premier League season are likely to have a greater bearing on the future, with the club in fifth place, chasing Tottenham and Liverpool.

The pair are both stalling on signing new deals and Real Madrid are interested in both, while Paris Saint-Germain have made discreet overtures about a summer move for Courtois.
