Chelsea London, Apr.16 (ANI): Chelsea’s Frank Lampard has said that he cannot wait to take on Barcelona in the semi-final of the Champions League.

Lamps rates Barcelona as the best side in the world, but he insists no one at Chelsea is scared of the team that stands between them and a second Champions League final.”Yeah, they have got some decent strikers and a good right winger. But I can’t wait to play them at the Nou Camp. I remember playing there for the first time and it was fantastic. They are a great team and the arena is fantastic. If you can’t get up for that, then there is something wrong with you,” said Lampard.

Lampard believes skipper John Terry’s ban was one of the reasons his team conceded four in Tuesday’s eight-goal classic against Liverpool.

And he does not expect a repeat performance when the Blues meet La Liga leaders Barca on April 21. (ANI)
