Yesterday was a period for Messi and Fabregas to rekindle old memories as the duo started their careers at the Barcelona academy before the latter moved to England.
Lionel Messi and Francesc Fabregas
Last night was a high profile champions league game between Chelsea and Barcelona, a game that ended 1-1 at Stamford Bridge, London.
The first half saw Barca maintaining possession with the English side having just 25%. However, the Blues came close to scoring with Brazilian international, Willian Borges da Silva hitting the woodwork twice in the first half.
At the resumption of second half, Chelsea became brave enough to push forward against Barcelona and were rewarded when a brilliant effort from Willian curved pass defenders to beat the goalkeeper in the 62nd minute of the game. 75 minutes later, Iniesta took advantage of a Chelsea defensive slip to lay the ball for Lionel Messi who scored his first goal against Chelsea.
Above are pictures showing Chelsea’s Fabregas and Messi catching up on old times, with former EPL player, Luis Suarez joining. Fabregas and Messi are part of Barcelona FC’s class of 2002.
