Here’s the BIG Champions League match KTN Home Channel will be broadcasting LIVE Today! DON’T MISS...
Barcelona will host Chelsea on Wednesday at the Camp Nou in the return leg of their Champions League tie that will be televised live on KTN Home channel at 10:45pm.
Chelsea, who got back to winning ways with a defeat of Crystal Palace on Saturday after back-to-back losses, produced an impressive performance to draw 1-1 with Barcelona at Stamford Bridge in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League last-16 tie.
Lionel Messi's equalizer canceled out Willian's opener and gave Barcelona the upper hand from the draw, making Blues’ task that much harder.
Barca are overwhelming favourites to "win" 2-1 against Chelsea.
It will be a tall order for Chelsea to advance to the last eight since Barcelona who are currently top of the LaLiga table will not underestimate Blues considering how close they came to losing at Stamford Bridge in the first leg .
