Champions League: Chelsea vs Barcelona: Messi, Suarez arrive in London
Lionel Messi and his team-mates have touched down in London, ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League round of 16 clash against Chelsea.
Messi met with former Barca striker, Gary Lineker and his four sons shortly after arrival.
Lineker shared the picture on his Instagram on Monday with the caption: “So this just happened. Finally managed to organise something that genuinely excited all 4 boys….oh, and dad. Thanks @leomessi.”
Ernesto Valverde’s men appeared in a very relaxed mood on Monday, as they arrived in rainy London.
Messi shared a picture on his own Instagram page of him leaving his team’s plane having arrived in the English capital.
The likes of Messi, Luis Suarez, Gerard Pique, Samuel Umtiti and Ousmane Dembele were earlier snapped at Barcelona Airport getting ready to make their way onto the plane.
Barcelona are unbeaten in their last eight fixtures in all competitions, while Antonio Conte’s squad have been in very mixed form.
