A La Liga trophy and a heart-breaking exit at the Anfield in the Semi-Finals of the Champions League made the 2018-19 season a rather mixed bag for the Barcelona side. To get their preparations in place for the upcoming season, the Spanish club will first up to face the English challenge against Chelsea on July 23.
Chelsea have had a successful season with a memorable win against Arsenal that won them the UEFA Europa League trophy. The team also ended third in the premier league. In their previous friendly Chelsea defeated St Patrick’s Athletic by four goals to nil. Two coming from Oliver Giroud.
