Chelsea’s Lampard in positive mood ahead of Barca showdown in CL semifinal

Chelsea’s Lampard in positive mood ahead of Barca showdown in CL semifinalLondon, Apr 18 : Veteran Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard has said they can beat any team in the world on their day, even if it's Barcelona, which is regarded as one of the finest teams in football.

Lampard said the hype around Barcelona would terrify lesser clubs, and he is happy that no one is giving Chelsea a prayer of beating Lionel Messi and his chums in Wednesday's semi-final.

"You can talk yourself into fear by speaking too much about Barca. We are under no illusions about the task but I like the tag of underdogs," The Sun quoted Lampard, as saying.

"That's always refreshing when you have belief in yourself. We'll have to be at our best because we are taking on the best. We have a plan to beat Barcelona and we pride ourselves on the fact Messi has never scored against us," he added.

"We respect that Barcelona have been the dominant team of the last few years but on our day we can be a match for anyone," he said. (ANI)
