Chelsea leads from the first leg, and that's enough to have the Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, talking up the Londoners' chances. "The Barcelona that we have seen last Wednesday is not the Barcelona of last year," he said, also talking up the Barcelona side that trounced Arsenal at Camp Nou in 2011. "It is far from impossible to qualify because Chelsea go in an even better position than we did last season. One-nil is a fantastic result."

Just how far it'll go remains to be seen -- Barcelona may have been beaten by Real Madrid at the weekend, but as Xavi reminds us, Pep Guardiola's side is still on course for a five-trophy haul this season. Follow the second leg live from Tuesday, 2.30 p.m. ET.
