Messi: Chelsea match will be more difficult than Levante

The Argentine attacker has stressed that the upcoming Champions League match will be even more difficult than Saturday's game, and added that it's all about the team's success
Lionel Messi has insisted that Wednesday's Champions League match against Chelsea will be an even more difficult test for Barcelona than Saturday's 2-1 La Liga victory away over Levante.

The Argentine forward netted a double to help his side to the full three points, but he expects the first leg of their semi-final against the Blues to be yet another tough task.

"We have to continue like this," he said. "Now it’s time to think about Chelsea, this is the most important match. It will be more difficult than the match against Levante.

"We knew it was a difficult ground, Levante are having a fantastic season and we managed to get a great result."

Messi has already netted 41 Liga goals this season and is level in the goalscoring charts with Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo. The attacker isn't thinking about individual success though, as he insists that the team is all that matters.

"Things are going well for us, but what’s really important is that we’re both fighting for the Liga title," he added. "I’m happy that I scored because the team won."

Barcelona are currently trailing Madrid by four points in La Liga.
