Barcelona midfielder, Sergio Busquets, has said they need to pay “special attention” to Willian, when they host Chelsea in their Champions League round of 16 tie on Wednesday night.
Willian hit the post twice before scoring the first goal in the 1-1 draw in the first leg three weeks ago.
Since then, the Brazilian has netted against Manchester United and Crystal Palace, to earn praise from manager Antonio Conte, who labelled the Brazilian as “fantastic” following Saturday’s 2-1 victory over the Eagles.
“We have to pay special attention to him, but [also Alvaro] Morata, Pedro or Hazard. They have specific attack profiles. They are a good team,” Busquets told reporters on Tuesday.
With Chelsea needing to score to advance to the quarter-finals of the Champions League, Busquets admitted that even a goalless draw will suit the hosts today.
“It is going to be a hard match, this is the Champions League. We are playing against a very good team with a defensive play.
“We will try to get the ball, they are well prepared and it will be hard. We will try to play hard to get the win, but 0-0 could be a good result. If they score we could be really suffering for that,” he said.
