Conte:Our performance was close to the perfect one

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte was disappointed after a 1-1 draw against Barcelona in the first 1/8-final match between the two Stamford Bridge teams. The Blues first took the lead in the game with Vilian`s goal, which previously hit two beams. Lionel Messi, however, equalized after a rough defensive effort on the hosts. However, the Italian specialist praised their players and said they performed almost perfectly in this game. I think we were close to doing the perfect match. We made only one mistake, but against Barcelona, ??where there are players like Messi, Suarez and Iniesta, every mistake is paid. It is a pity, but I am pleased with my players. We just had no luck, said Conte. He also commented on his decision to leave without a pure striker, but to bet Eden Hazard in that role. Before you play, you have to keep up with the rival, to judge what is the best way to challenge it. I think our plan was good. We will not be too easy against a team like Barcelona. Yes, we still have a chance to continue, but it will be very difficult for us. At the same time, our performance in today`s game must give us confidence that we can do it, `added the Italian.
