hard one to call. I got a feeling chelsea could nick this but they need to produce one hell of a performance. Cech, JT, Cole, Lamps, Mata, and Drogba need to be on top of their game. I'd actually throw torres on in that game to. Could cause a few problems. Michael Essien could be a huge factor in what way the game goes to. Can see cole getting the better of messi but that we git, will always have one moment of brilliance throughout the game and that could determine the result. Chelsea to win at home 1-0. Feed drogba and he will score lol
2-1 Chelsea. Drogba will bully Puyol, Pique and particularly Mascherano - he should have had a hat-trick last time he played against them.
At the Nou Camp I can see Barca overturning it though and winning like 3-1.
Drogba is massive for Chelsea in this tie, if he can get under Barca's skin (they don't have the best defence) Chelsea have a huge chance.
Stamford Bridge needs to be bouncing too on Wednesday though. When United beat Barca 1-0 in 2008 Old Trafford was as loud as I've ever heard a football stadium in this country in recent years and it made a huge difference. As a Utd fan when we beat Chelsea in the first leg of the quarter final last year I was so happy with how quiet their fans were for such a big game! At this stage of the season in such big games it makes an immense difference if your fans can get right behind you. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vkxa1DTaPdE

If Barcelona manage to score first, then I imagine it could become a rout because Chelsea would then be forced out of their usual 'park the bus' tactic against them. However if the chelsea scores first, I think they'll probably park the plane as well and settle for a 1-0 lead into the nou camp. Its either going to be a simple 1-0 win to chelsea, a thrashing scoreline by barcelona or 0-0. Take your pick, personally I would go for a 0-0 scoreline as the likeliest.
I'm going with 1-1 for the first leg. 2 - 0 to Barcelona at the Camp Nou.
Can see it being a boring game, every time i get hyped up to watch what i think will be a good match it always turns out to be a rather dull affair.
