Conte targeting FA Cup and top-four finish

Antonio Conte

Barcelona won last's round-of-16 second leg 3-0, meaning Chelsea were eliminated 4-1 on aggregate.

"I think when you have the opportunity to make a great compliment to Messi, it is right to recognize a super, super, super top player", Conte said. In the last game we played at home, we suffered against them.

"Luck appears to have turned its back on us this season, even though I don't like to pin everything on misfortune", he said in an interview with Italian media outlet Mediaset, but I do think tonight's result was unfair. "We are talking about a player who scores 60 goals every season".

The Blaugrana faithful unveiled the epic banner just before kick-off on Wednesday night, with the words "Long Live The King" and an iconic picture of Messi celebrating last year's 6-1 win over PSG emblazoned across the almost 50-foot tifo.

Lionel Messi was in inspired form after scoring twice to take his Champions League total to 100 goals.

But despite many believing Messi to be the finest footballer to have ever played the game, he is actually the second man to reach 100 Champions League goals.

Ronda Rousey On Possible Return To MMA
Although most fans assumed that her first match wouldn't be until WrestleMania , there were no guarantees. Ronda may have lost her last two fights , but she doesn't need to prove anything to anyone in MMA.

BARCELONA: Ter Stegen, Sergi Roberto, Pique, Umtiti, Alba, Dembele (Vidal, 67 mins), Rakitic, Busquets (Andre Gomes, 61 mins), Iniesta (Paulinho, 56 mins), Messi, Suarez. We might have watched this three or four times now.

"They want to go to the next round to try to write the history of this competition".

The Argentine has often been linked with a big-money move to Premier League but Conte is very convinced that Messi will end his career at Barcelona.

"I have to assess what is best for me and it will be the most honest for the club".

Midfield: Alba (Barcelona) 6 points, Strootman (Roma) 6 points.

With Manchester United dumped out by Sevilla and Tottenham outmanoeuvred by Juventus, Chelsea's exit means for all the talk of a Premier League resurgence, Liverpool and Manchester City are its two remaining representatives in the draw for the quarter-finals that takes place today.
