Chelsea star Eden Hazard sends out message to Barcelona, PSG and Besiktas
Chelsea star playmaker Eden Hazard has fired a warning out towards his sides possible opponents in the next round of the UEFA Champions League.
The Blues were held to a 1-1 draw while Rome recorded a 1-0 victory over Qarabag leaving Antonio Conte’s side in second place.
Chelsea have progressed to the knockout stages as runner-up which means they will be unseeded for the last 16 draw.
However, the Blues will not be allowed to face another Premier League side or the winner of their own group in the next round.
If Liverpool and Tottenham win their respective groups tomorrow, Chelsea will play one of either Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain or Besiktas.
Following the game, Hazard told reporters that he is not worried about Chelsea’s opponent in the next round.
“It’s not a problem who we get, we are Chelsea,” Hazard said.
“We are a top team too. We can do anything.”
Besiktas have already qualified to the next round as group leaders following three wins and two draws in Group G.
