Premier League holders Chelsea face La Liga Champions Barcelona as they continue their pre-season campaign with an eagerly awaited International Champions Cup fixture at the FedEx Field on Wednesday.

Chelsea fans expect their heroes to repeat the performance that they had displayed to record a tremendous two-legged victory over the Catalans in the Champions League semifinal three years ago.
The Blues are heading into Wednesday’s fixture on the back of shoot-out victory against Paris Saint-Germain following a defeat at the hands of New York Red Bulls in the opening match of International Champions Cup. In contrast, Luis Enrique’s boys opened their pre-season campaign on a high note with a 2-1 triumph over LA Galaxy but faced a 3-1 defeat to Manchester United in their next match.
