Thierry Henry is confident that Barcelona can put Chelsea to the sword in Tuesday's UEFA Champions League clash.[LNB] The sides meet at Camp Nou in the first leg of their semi-final tie and Barca will be looking to build an advantage to take to Stamford Bridge.[LNB]Chelsea have been in fine form of late and Henry accepts they will be organised under manager Guus Hiddink and difficult to beat.[LNB]However, the French forward believes Barcelona are playing well enough to overcome anyone and is not worried about the pressure of being expected to win.[LNB]"For us it is not a problem that some people have made Barcelona favourites," he said in the Daily Star.[LNB]"We accept that we will have to fight hard to make sure we make it to the final in Rome.[LNB]"Chelsea boss Guus Hiddink is a great tactician so it will be hard. But if we have enough possession we are capable of destroying any rival we face."[LNB]Messi madnessArgentine forward Lionel Messi has been outstanding all season and Henry expects his team-mate to deliver another dazzling display.[LNB]But Henry insists there are other potential match-winners that can emerge if Messi is kept quiet.[LNB]He explained: "For me Lionel Messi is without doubt the No.1 player in the world.[LNB]"If Leo plays like he has been doing he is capable of sending the Chelsea defenders mad.[LNB]"But I have to say that Barcelona is not all about Messi. Players like Xavi and (Andres) Iniesta are both unique and brilliant players."[LNB]
