Former Manchester United and Bayern Munich midfielder Owen Hargreaves believes Chelsea could shock Barcelona in the Champions League, BT Sport reports.

Paris Saint-Germain's Brazilian forward Neymar (L) and Real Madrid's Portuguese forward Cristiano Ronaldo (R).

Tottenham have been handed a tricky tie against last season's runners-up Juventus.

No club has won the European title three years running since Bayern Munich in the mid-1970s, underlining how big an achievement it would be if Madrid - 12 times winners overall - won the trophy again in the final in Kiev in May.

"I think it is a good draw".

The Spanish champions' director of institutional relations, Emilio Butragueno, told beIN Sports: "It could have been the final, for the power of the two clubs, but that happens in a draw - luck plays a role".

PSG were dumped out in the round of 16 by Barcelona last term as their 4-0 first leg advantage was spectacularly overturned in a 6-5 aggregate defeat.

He added: "They're a strong team".

"We must trust in our players, who know how to play this type of game".

However, Chelsea fans were quick to bite back at the Catalans and reminded Barcelona that they've had their own success in Spain. It's a handsome challenge for the club.

This form has seen Chelsea go into the tie as underdogs. "I think we are ready for that".

Chelsea and Barca have developed a rivalry in the Roman Abramovich era, with Andres Iniesta settling a bitter semifinal contest with a last-minute victor in 2009, while the Blues won out in the last four 2012 en route to their only success in the competition. "We are very optimistic, we are confident and want to keep going in this competition".

Wide cracks in the relationship between manager and board had begun to show around the end of the transfer window, with the Italian frustrated with the club's inability to bring in his top targets while their Premier League rivals struggled with no such issues.
