Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte, has insisted he is not bothered by the possibility of facing Barcelona or Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League Round of 16.

The Blues failed to finish top of Group C, following a 1-1 draw with Atletico Madrid at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night.

Atletico took the lead through Saul Niguez header, but Chelsea equalised when Stefan Savic turned Eden Hazard’s strike into his own goal in the 75th minute.

Alvaro Morata also missed a great chance to win it late on, as Conte’s men finished as runners-up.

Conte, however, insisted Europe’s leading lights will fear a clash with Chelsea.

“I think when you go through to the last 16 you must be ready to face the best team. After the draw we’ll see what happens. I think that also our opponent won’t be happy to play against us,” he said.
