Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola insists he is not feeling the pressure as he trusts his players to rise to the occasion in their do-or-die Champions League clash with Chelsea.

The Catalans head into the semi-final second leg on the back of successive defeats, losing 1-0 to the Blues in the reverse fixture at Stamford Bridge and then suffering a home defeat to arch rivals Real Madrid on Saturday.

At a press conference at the Nou Camp, the Barca manager looked frustrated and swore in one response but said: "I don't know if this is the most important moment of my career as a coach, but I have always faced these challenges with a lot of optimism as I believe in my players and team."
