Barcelona: Ashley Cole believes European champions can be stopped at Stamford Bridge
Ashley Cole, the Chelsea full-back, is confident Roberto Di Matteo's side can beat European champions Barcelona to progress to next month's champions League final.
Chelsea go into Wednesday's semi-final first leg at Stamford Bridge as massive underdogs to win the two-legged tie against a Barça team widely regarded as one of the greatest ever club teams in world football.
However, Cole has said the west Londoners will reach the final on May 19 in Munich, Germany.
"Chelsea, of course [will reach the final]. Chelsea against Real Madrid, I hope," Cole said. "We know what Barcelona are about and that we have to be on our game. We’re confident and feel we’re good enough to progress."
Despite having never won the European Cup, Chelsea, historically, have a decent record against the four-time winners having beaten them four times in 13 meetings against Barça's five wins.
"I do think that while they’re not worried about us, out of the teams they’ve played in the champions League and the Premier League sides they’ve faced, we have given them the hardest run.
