Hi to all......... The first leg of UEFA Champions league semifinal between FC Barcelona and Chelsea is at Nou Camp......... So, Barcelona will have an advantage........ FC Barcelona won emphatically against Bayern Munich in the quarterfinal of UEFA Champions league...... Also, the trio of Lionel Messi, Thierry Henry and Samuel Eto'o are in superb form......... These three have scored around 90 goals this season......... So far, no player is injured for Barcelona......... Also, Andres Iniesta, Xavi Hernandez and Seydou Keita are in good form....... Chelsea won 7-5 against Liverpool in the quarters....... They are also in great form especially Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba........ But the absence of Ashley Cole wii disappoint them........... I think FC Barcelona will win 3-1 against Chelsea in the first leg of UEFA Champions League semifinal at Nou Camp...... Lionel Messi will score twice and Thierry Henry will complete the score line........ Samuel Eto'o will provide two assists and Xavi Hernandez will provide the third assist........ For Chelsea, Nicolas Anelka will score from Frank Lampard's pass...... HAVE A NICE DAY!!!!!!!!!!!! HAPPY MYLOTTING!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i reckon there will be plenty of goals coming from both teams in the first leg but in my opinion Barcelona will edge through at home but Guus hiddink will make sure that Chelsea simply go at them so maybe a 2-1 3-2 or even 4-3 and it will be close encounter but i agree about the Petr Cech comment they need him to play well in order to not take the same punishment as Bayern did. Barcelona (Messi,Eto'o or Henry) 2-1 Chelsea (Lampard or Drogba)

It is hard to tell who will win, because form and roaster is just part of the factors that will determine the outcome. Other important factors including individual and team performance on the match day, luck, referee, whether etc. On any given day, any team can beat any team. It is even harder when the teams are of similar strength and depth. I would say with both team recent defensive record and both team recent form, it might be a scoring spree game, but with Barcelona homeground advantage and the suspension of Ashley Cole, I would put say on paper Barca has the slight edge over Chelsea before the game. I would fancy some scorelines like 3-1, 3-2, 4-2, 4-3. But again a game is not win on paper, so we will only know the result by the end of the game.

Barcelona is likely to win, but much will be determined by the play of Petr Cech. If Cech plays the same way that he did against Liverpool, then Chelsea are going to suffer the same fate as FC Bayern in the first leg of the quarter finals. I think that much of the inept defensive play by Chelsea against Liverpool was due to the familiarity of the two teams with each other. Therefore, I think Barcelona will win a close one with no clean sheets. Chelsea will come away with the crucial away goal. 2-1 win for Barcelona.

Chelsea and Barcelona will be a great march. Barca has a great many players who have strong attacking ability. They are creative. They can play a excelent perfomances. But honestly say, Barca's defence is not as enough good as it attacks. Especially Didier Droba. Chelsea is a physical team and has a strong power.I think it is competition between creativity and wallop.
