Guus Hiddink's Russian national team assistant has said that Chelsea should
Guus Hiddink's Russian national team assistant has said that Chelsea should put pressure on the Barcelona defense in tonight's Champions League first leg, semi-final match in Spain.

Hiddink, who temporarily took over Chelsea earlier this year, leads the London club into a potentially explosive clash with Spanish giants Barcelona at the Nou Camp on Tuesday evening. The winners of the two-legged tie will face either Manchester United or Arsenal in the final in Rome on May 27.

"Teams that give Barcelona the ball and play defensively always lose. However, the Catalan side almost always experiences problems with their defense if their opponents are ready to play their own game. The make-up of the Chelsea squad gives reason to hope that they will be able to do this," Igor Korneev told Sovetski Sport.

"Hiddink is able to fire players up like no one else. Right now, Barcelona are possibly the strongest team in the world, both as regards their performances and their squad, but Guus is capable of convincing players that nothing is impossible," he also told the paper.

Hiddink has transformed Chelsea since taking over at the club on February 11. As well as making the last four of Europe's most prestigious club competition, the side, owned by Russian tycoon Roman Abramovich, has already booked its place in the FA Cup final on May 30. The FA Cup showdown with Everton will be Hiddink's last in charge of Chelsea before he returns to coaching Russia on a full time basis.
