​Chelsea must learn to deal with the pressure - Conte

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte states his team will have to figure out how to handle the pressure as they attempt to get through the round of 16 clash against Barcelona.

The Catalan giants are in great form, having gone unbeaten in La Liga so far. They have only conceded 11 goals in the league, and their record in the Champions League is pretty impressive too.

Conte believes that handling periods of intense pressure will be so important for his Chelsea team.

"If you want to compete at the maximum level, you have to live with this pressure," he said.

"A team like Chelsea must have the right pressure in every game. You must play with only one idea: to try to win. Sometimes you are able to, sometimes you are not, but your idea must be this.

"If you want to stay at this level, pressure must be your friend, not your enemy."
