Chelsea face Barcelona in the last 16 of Europe's elite club competition in February, but the Italian said his team could be in for another nasty surprise on the domestic front if they made the mistake of looking too far ahead.

The biggest tie of the round, though, sees Madrid - winners in both 2016 and 2017 - facing a PSG side widely considered among the leading contenders to win the trophy this season after bringing in Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Dani Alves in the summer. It's very important for me, the players, for all of us.

PSG have failed to make it past the quarter-final stage of the Champions League since the arrival of the club's mega-rich Qatari owners.

Manchester United were paired with Spanish side Sevilla. "They are in a good moment of form and we must be very good to be more clinical in this game, because in the recent period we weren't clinical".

"I think this type of game is a good chance for every player to show the right value".

Paris Saint-Germain chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi says that his club will relish the task of taking on Real Madrid in the last-16 stage of the Champions League.

"We must be very realistic to understand that this league is very risky".

"For sure it is hard because to face a game every three days is not simple, especially if your squad is not big, but at the same time we have to face this situation".

"There is a problem in this league: there are six top teams and only four places for the Champions League", Conte told the club's website.

Barcelona have been brilliant this season and are top of La Liga whilst Chelsea sit 14 points behind top of the Premier League Manchester City.
