Chelsea striker Morata: We can't stop Messi

Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata fears his teammates will struggle to handle Barcelona star Lionel Messi in their Champions League clash.

Messi has faced Chelsea eight times without scoring a single goal from 29 shots – his worst record against a single club during his career.

But Morata told Moviestar+: "Messi can't be stopped.

"If we can get a good result here, we have to play a defensive game with spaces and try to bother them as much as possible."

The first leg of the last-16 tie takes place at Stamford Bridge on February 20, with the return leg at the Nou Camp scheduled for March 14.
