Chelsea vs Barca, CL semi-final first leg.
The spotlight is on Leo Messi as it should be, arguably the best player in the world.
So for all the fevered attention given to containing him, it should not be overlooked that Barca's orchestrator in the Bayern blowout, was Iniesta. His prior work culminated in the Messi goals. In the return leg, Iniesta's intricate passing led to the Keita equalizer.
Iniesta is a chess player, cagey, with a real feel for the first and last pass that score goals. Between them there are 30. It depends on who he gives the ball to. Eto'o, Henry, and Messi all can be part of his largesse. Or for that matter, as he has very capably shown, he might take on the whole show and score goals himself.
So Chelsea, if you want to pick your poison and shift the field to his side, there is a chance that you might end up getting burned very badly.
Here is Iniesta destroying Sevilla with Messi looking on from the bench:
