Best team doesn’t always win – Torres

Chelsea will hope he is right as Torres admits Barcelona are ahead of the Londoners.

“It’s clear that Barcelona are a step ahead of all other clubs,” said the Chelsea striker. “They have reached the last five semi-finals, and that’s not easy at all, but this is football: the best team doesn’t always win.

“Xavi and Iniesta are players who dictate the rhythm of the game. When you play against them, you need to know that they are guiding the game.”
