Conte: Mistake away from perfection

Antonio Conte claims Chelsea were “one mistake” away from ‘perfection’ against Barcelona but backs them to do “something incredible” at Camp Nou.

Willian had given Chelsea the lead in Tuesday’s Champions League last-16 first leg, until Andreas Christensen’s mistake gifted Lionel Messi his first-ever goal against the Blues, earning Barca a 1-1 draw ahead of the return fixture in three weeks’ time.
