thumbnail Hello,

Barcelona must produce another performance like the one they achieved against Bayern Munich when Chelsea visit, according to their star midfielder...

Xavi Hernandez is dreaming about repeating Barcelona's first leg display against Bayern Munich when Chelsea visit Camp Nou on Tuesday evening in the Champions League.

The Catalan midfielder was inspirational as Pep Guardiola's side knocked four past the hapless Germans and wants his team to play in the same manner against the Blues.

While admitting that it will be difficult to repeat the scoreline, Xavi does believe that Barca can play at the same level.

"It would be a huge advantage, in fact it would be a bit of a dream, if we could hit four goals against Chelsea like we did that night," he told reporters in the pre-match press conference.

"What we can repeat, however, is the level of play and the intensity with which we attacked Bayern.

"My opinion remains that we are not likely to finish the tie in the first leg – the match at Stamford Bridge will be decisive.

"Look what happened when Chelsea won at Anfield. Despite that victory, they had to fight to stay alive in the second leg and what I feel is important is that we now have enough experience to play this cleverly over the two legs of the tie."
