UCL: Abraham wants Chelsea to play Barcelona in Round of 16

Striker Tammy Abraham is ready for the toughest-possible opponent for Chelsea in the UEFA Champions League Round of 16.

The draw will be held on Monday, and a seemingly fearless Abraham will not mind a Barcelona opposition.

"Ready for anyone, ready for anyone to be honest," Abraham said after last night's 2-1 win over Lille sealed their progress from Group H.

"I would love it if it is playing at the Nou Camp or somewhere I've never played before.

"It's exciting, very exciting. For us, we're never ones to back down from a challenge. We want to play against the best teams in the world and play in the best stadiums in the world so for us it is exciting times. No fear.

"Playing in the last 16 is a dream come true, it is about just focusing on the league now and then in the new year coming back to the last 16."

"It has been a fantastic journey, an exciting journey. You never know what the future holds. For us, it is about going out there every game and just believing in ourselves.

"When we saw the draw we knew it was going to be hard, we left it to the last game to go through but it is exciting times going forward."

Barcelona are one of four sides that Chelsea could be paired with, in Monday's draw, along with Bayern Munich, RB Leipzig, Maurizio Sarri's Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain.
