Antonio Conte admits he will be sacked at Chelsea

This is the FA Cup quarterfinal.

With Chelsea adrift of the Champions League qualification places in the Premier League, defeat to Leicester in Sunday's FA Cup quarter-final and then to Tottenham on April 1 could result in a premature departure for Conte, whose position has been the subject of speculation all season.

"When you have the opportunity to make a great compliment to Messi, I think it's right", Conte said.

Conte will be taking no risks with his team selection as Chelsea aim to reach the final for the second year in a row, having lost to London rivals Arsenal last season. "But we played strong as a team", Messi said.

Rio Ferdinand pointed the finger at Thibaut Courtois after the Belgian goalkeeper endured a night to forget during Chelsea FC's 3-0 Champions League defeat by Barcelona on Wednesday night. In the last game we played at home we suffered against them (drawing 0-0).

The La Liga giants made the best of their chances to progress into the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

He will miss Barca's Liga games at home to Athletic Bilbao on Sunday and away to Sevilla on March 31, as well as Spain's worldwide friendlies against Germany and Argentina. Messi started the move and finished it off, with Dembele, Luis Suarez and a deflection off Alonso, helping him find the space to fire through the legs of Thibaut Courtois for the fastest goal of his career.

"I think every trophy is important for us", the Italian said. Courtois evidently did not expect that, and admitted the same after the game and added that Barcelona capitalized on the mistakes committed by the players on the field.

Barcelona, who are heavy favourites to clinch this year's continental crown after missing out on the last two seasons, join Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Manchester City, Liverpool, AS Roma, Sevilla and Juventus in the last-eight.
