Chelsea forward Eden Hazard reveals he is looking forward to facing Lionel Messi and FC Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League.
The two sides will lock horns in the round of 16, although the Blues have hit a rough patch lately in the Premier League.
Barca lost the services of Neymar in the off-season transfer window, but Hazard insists that will not weaken their opponents due to Messi's presence.
"You know, they have a guy who is not from this world," Hazard said, according to FourFourTwo.
"He's different, a superclass. But this is not about one player, it is about the whole team.
He added,"It's a beautiful match.
"This season we are not the same as last season, of course, and they are very good but in the end it is a cup tie and you never know what happens.
"That's why we love football. I'm pretty sure we can beat them if we play together. We'll see."
