Guus Hiddink has put the nation on goal alert after predicting Chelsea and Barcelona could serve up another feast of football in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final at the Nou Camp on Tuesday.
Chelsea secured their semi-final spot 7-5 on aggregate after drawing 4-4 in the second leg of their quarter-final against Liverpool and Hiddink hinted there could be more exciting times ahead against Barca.
"I think both teams have a style to attack when they can," declared Hiddink. "Barcelona like to attack and Chelsea are not a team who have the strategy to sit back and wait until it happens."
He added: "The team have shown a lot of initiatives and that's why I think it is more or less an open clash, with two teams who like to go forward."
After their 4-4 draw with Liverpool, in which they had to fight back from being two goals down at the interval, Hiddink knows his side cannot afford to start in a sluggish fashion against Barcelona.
He continued: "It is the whole squad's responsibility to make sure we have a concentrated start.
"I have seen Barcelona play many times in the last weeks and also before.
"For a long time I have been a Barcelona admirer and an admirer of their philosophy.
"The players not only play for themselves but also a great club and they know it, in a side which is very attacking and attractive - it makes it typical of the Barca style."
