Even after the half ended with Chelsea leading in shot attempts; seven to Barcelona's three, two posts drilled by Willian, and generally having much more unsafe opportunities, some people appeared dismayed by his unwillingness to play directly at Barcelona at Stamford Bridge.
Christensen, Chelsea's least experienced player, made the decisive mistake for Barcelona's equaliser but Conte insisted that he has no regrets about picking the young Dane, who has enjoyed a breakout season at Stamford Bridge with a series of composed performances in the heart of defence.

Morata came on in the 83rd minute but couldn't do anything to give Chelsea a slender lead for the next game, but did pick up a yellow in his short cameo.
Chelsea and Barcelona were facing each other for the 13th time in the Champions League, renewing their rivalry after a classic semi-final clash in 2012.
"Of course, the result against Atletico gives us confidence. In the end it came from an error from them and we took advantage", said Barca coach Ernesto Valverde.
"In the last three games, we scored eight times, with seven goals scored with Pedro, Willian and Hazard". They have the attacking resources to cause us problems. We were a bit unlucky.
