Amuneke tips Chelsea to shock Barcelona in Spain

Ex-Super Eagles winger, Emmanuel Amuneke, is backing Chelsea to get the job done when they face Barcelona in the Champions League round of 16-second leg.

A Lionel Messi strike cancelled out Willian’s effort to hand the visitors advantage going to Spain

Amuneke, 47, who spent four years with the Catalan club, believes Antonio Conte’s men did put up a good shift on Tuesday.

With similar tactics, the former Golden Eaglets coach conceives the Blues can overcome his former team.

“It was a very tactical game which Chelsea did very well,” Amuneke told CompleteSports on Wednesday.

“Collectively they did very well, not conceding possession to Barca whose strength is to hold possession to punish teams.

“The game will be open, and if Chelsea deploys the same tactic going with a false 9, they may exploit spaces left behind.”

Both sides will clash at the Nou Camp on March 14.
