Real Madrid play PSG in Champions League, Chelsea get Barcelona

Michael Owen is tipping Chelsea to get back to winning ways in the Premier League by beating Huddersfield Town on Tuesday night.

"We will meet them in the last 16, which is a bit early, we could say".

"Every summer they have signed great players, they get stronger all the time and they have had a almost impeccable group stage", acknowledged Butragueno.

United are second in the Premier League but are a whopping 11 points behind City and know despite the heavyweight teams left in the competition, the Champions League is probably a more realistic chance of silverware.

In this regard, China, Russia and India, as three fast developing emerging market countries, should play active roles amid a changing global structure, he said.

"For sure it is hard because to face a game every three days is not simple, especially if your squad is not big, but at the same time we have to face this situation". "Our fans will like it after we were knocked out by Barcelona last season".

The Italian expects Huddersfield to try and hit his team on the break, saying: "We must pay great attention to the counter-attack because they have fast players". It's a handsome challenge for the club.

"There is a problem in this league: there are six top teams and only four places for the Champions League", Conte told the club's website.

"It is a good tie, the factor of playing the first leg away can always help you a little", said Barca director Guillermo Amor. It's welcome. If you want to win the competition, you have to beat everyone.

"Each summer they have bought enormous players and are getting stronger all the time", Butragueno added. "It will be a hard task, but we are looking forward to the unusual atmosphere in their stadium", he said.
