Not at all the start Chelsea needed at the Nou Camp.
Lionel Messi has found his goalscoring touch against Chelsea after slipping the ball through Thibaut Courtois legs from a tight angle.
It was poor goalkeeping on Courtois part and it’s left the Blues with a big task in this tie.
This early opener puts more insentive on Antonio Conte’s men to score against this impressive Barcelona team.
Here is Messi’s goal just beyond the two minute mark:
99 Champions League goals 👏
