Ronaldinho believes that the two best teams in Europe will come face to face when Barcelona meet Chelsea on Wednesday night.

The Brazilian playmaker admits he has watched Chelsea on a number of occasions this term and has been impressed by what he has seen.

“I believe they are the two strongest teams in Europe,” he stated.

“I think that it is going to be a difficult match for us because Chelsea have a good team, full of big stars.

“I have seen Chelsea a few times on television, tactically they are very good and they are very strong on the counter-attack.

“They pressure very well and keep possession of the ball so it will be important that we play our own game.

“We are only thinking of winning the match with all respect to the opposition.”
