The return leg at Camp Nou is Wednesday, March, 14 kick-off 7.45pm.

Antonio Conte said: “Our reaction must be positive.

“When you are at this stage you must be ready to face every team, and in this case we must be ready to face Barcelona.

“We must be ready to play at home and away, it’s impossible to see an advantage to play at home or away in the first game. When you play Barcelona you must put 120 per cent at home and away if you want to hope to go to the next round.”
