There is never a dull moment when these two giants face off in the Champions League.

For over the past decade both teams have been bizarrely drawn to each other, much like Real Madrid and Lyon have been. But unlike the latter pairing, the opposition between the Blues and Blaugranas has never failed to amuse the football world, with controversy ahead, during and even after the game.

During the course of their various clashes, we have witnessed retired referees due to fan death threats, denied penalties of which were a certainty, last minute goals that crushed the souls of opposing supporters and most importantly the comical football memes that are an outcome of an objecting defeated football player.

Having raised the bar for themselves, the two sides are expected to deliver. It has been 5 years since the last Barca/Chelsea spectacle. Which only means that we look forward to this event with greater anticipation when this intense rivalry is reignited on the 20th of February, 2018.

This is not a clash to be missed.
