Antonio Conte’s side have a difficult task ahead when they meet the La Liga leaders at the Camp Nou for the second leg on March 14, but Lampard feels Chelsea can surprise Barcelona.
“Can they win against Barcelona? I think so,” Lampard told talkSPORT. “Chelsea were fantastic in the first leg and, of all the English teams in the Champions League, Chelsea do have the capabilities to be really organized and they have dangerous players on the counter-attack, particularly Eden Hazard and in his current form.
“If they can try and play the way they played at the Bridge, they’ve got a chance. It’s going to be a very tough game. When you go to the Nou Camp, Barcelona and especially Lionel Messi make it so difficult for you.
“But there’s certainly a fighting chance for Chelsea. They do have the ability to go there and get something.”
