This Tuesday evening, Chelsea welcome Barcelona to Stamford Bridge for what will be a fascinating Champions League encounter.

Games between the two clubs have produced some colossal struggles in the past, with Chelsea getting the last laugh the last time the clubs met, knocking the Catalan giants out in the semi-final as they went on to win the famous trophy in 2012.

By some strange quirk of fate, the referee for the fixture, on Tuesday evening, is the very same referee who took charge of the semi-final second leg, at the Nou Camp, Cuneyt Cakir.

On that memorable night, in the Nou Camp, Cakir, in the first-half, showed John Terry a red-card for a knee in the back of Alexis Sanchez, it was a red-card that was to cost John Terry a place in the starting eleven for the final, against Bayern Munich, in the Allianz Arena.

Hopefully, Cakir will have something of a less eventful ninety minutes on Tuesday evening, but, to us, it`s a case of better the devil you know as opposed to the devil himself, Tom Henning Ovrebo, but that`s another story in itself!
