Chelsea vs. Barcelona, UEFA Champions League 2012: Open Thread

Chelsea vs Barcelona
Chelsea vs Barcelona

Barcelona is set to take on Chelsea in the semifinals of the UEFA Champions League, and we're here to hold your hand through it all! The game starts at 20:45 PM CET (2:45 PM EST) in Stamford Bridge in London, the ground where Barcelona controversially eliminated Chelsea at the same stage in 2009.

Pep Guardiola's men have a tough task tonight, as Roberto Di Matteo's resurgent Chelsea look to continue their fine European form. How will the Blues cope with the loss of David Luiz at centre-back? Who will stop Lionel Messi? Drogba or Torres?

Consider this your forum to discuss the match respectfully, to mourn and celebrate together. If a Barca fan stumbles in (or comes to gloat) treat him or her with respect, as we would want the same from them.
