Club captain thinks recent positive results stand his side in good stead to face European champions

Chelsea captain John Terry concedes beating current European Champions Barcelona will be a tough task, but believes their recent good results will put them in good stead to beat Pep Guardiola’s men.

The Blues progressed to the last four following a 3-1 aggregate win over Benfica, following their 2-1 triumph at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night.

The victory was their seventh in their last nine matches and the club captain believes this run of form will put them in good stead for their semi-final clash.

“It’s a very good achievement to reach our sixth semi-final in nine years, but we want to go through to the end,” Terry said.

“Clearly, that’s going to be tough against Barcelona, but we’re playing well.

“I am not sure anyone will fancy playing us at the moment because we are a very good side, especially in this competition.

“Barcelona are a very good team, but home and away we’re a very solid side as well.

“We have shown that away against a very good Benfica side and proved on big nights at Stamford Bridge that we can really upset teams as well.

“We’re confident. It is important we keep this momentum because we’re going well in the league. That is the key for us.”
