Cech

Petr Cech is one of the best goalkeepers in history. The Czech Republic player has done well against Barça but there is one player he can't stop. This player is Andrés Iniesta. In 2009, when Chelsea was just one step away from the Champion's League final, a powerful shot from the midfielder in the top-right corner qualifies his team for the final.

Against Spain, Cech was once again victim of one of Iniesta's moves, when he delivered a magical assist to Gerard Piqué. The goalkeeper talked about Barça's captain in an interview to El Periódico and he spoke about the marvels of the footballer from Castilla-La-Mancha.

Iniesta, one of the best in history

"For me, he is one of the best players in football's history like some that Barcelona or Spain have."

Iniesta's qualities

"Everything about Iniesta surprises me. His passing ability, his movement, everything he does on the pitch."

"He's an incredible player. What more can I say? You know that when you have him on the pitch, everything can happen. He has so much quality that he can win any game."

Comparative to the 2009 goal

"It reminded me a bit of that goal. It is true that Iniesta didn't score yesterday but he was decisive with the great assist he made to Piqué. In both games we had a lot of pressure."
