Neymar sends Real Madrid prediction to Lionel Messi after Champions League draw

English champions Chelsea have also suffered for having to settle for second place in their group behind Roma, with a match-up with Ernesto Valverde's revitalised Barcelona representing a significant hurdle if they are to progress.

"Then when it will be the moment to play against Barcelona we will start to think of the game against Barcelona".

"It's a good draw, with two good games to play", Maxwell said.

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

"We must be very realistic to understand that this league is very unsafe".

"I think when you play every three days, it is impossible to have a training session and to work on the physical aspects. We need to face both games like finals and for the fans it will be a thrilling tie". "Our fans will like it after we were knocked out by Barcelona last season".

Their most recent encounter was the 2011/12 Champions League semi-final which Chelsea won 3-2 on aggregate as they went on to lift the trophy for the first time in their history. It's welcome. If you want to win the competition, you have to beat everyone. We have to try to do our best.

"The Italian, who conceded that the league title was out of reach after the West Ham defeat, challenged his players to put things right at Huddersfield".

Bayern's director of sport Hasan Salihamidzic said the Germans would not be underestimating Besiktas, who should enjoy some raucous support from the city's Turkish community.

"Each summer they have bought enormous players and are getting stronger all the time", Butragueno added.

Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea all progressed from the group stage, making England the first country to have so many sides through to the knockout phase.
