Ex-Real Madrid and Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata has made a shock confession about Barcelona forward Lionel Messi ahead of the Champions League showdown with the Camp Nou outfit.

Morata believed that the Barcelona maestro cannot be stopped when he explodes into space.

Messi has failed to score a goal against Chelsea after facing the Stamford Bridge outfit eight times and has registered 29 shots – his worst record against a single club during his career.

But Morata told Moviestar+: "Messi can't be stopped.

"If we can get a good result here, we have to play a defensive game with spaces and try to bother them as much as possible."

Chelsea will host Barcelona at the Stamford Bridge on February 20, the second leg at Camp Nou on March 14.
