Antonio Conte Went Mental After Seeing Willian's Stunning Opener

Antonio Conte Went Mental After Seeing Willian's Stunning Opener

Antonio Conte's celebration for Willian's opener was a typically passionate one.

After seeing two excellent first-half efforts from range fly against the post, it was third time lucky in the 62nd minute as the Brazilian received the ball on the edge of the area following a short corner routine.

A little shimmy gave him the opening and he then produced a wonderful low curling strike into the bottom corner, with Marc-Andre Ter Stegen not even moving.

It was the former Shakhtar man's third goal this week after he netted a brace in the 4-0 FA cup sixth round win over Hull City on Friday night.

Things you'll remember if you played school yard football...

Stamford Bridge erupted but you'd do well to find someone who went more mental than Chelsea's manager on the touchline.

As we know, the former Juventus and Italy boss is an absolute nutter and when Willian's stunner hit the back of the net, he was absolutely loving it.

Chelsea, extremely well organised and concentrated against the La Liga leaders, were good value for their lead and frustrated Barca for large spells.

But one mistake from Andreas Christensen, a loose pass that was picked up by Andres Iniesta, gave Lionel Messi the chance to level matters in the 75th minute.

The Argentine made no mistake, coolly slotting home his first ever goal against Chelsea at the 30th attempt., in his ninth appearance against the Blues.

Now on 98 Champions League goals, you wouldn't back against the five time Ballon d'Or winner to add to his tally against the Blues during the second leg at the Nou Camp.
