The Cameroon international has an in-depth knowledge of Spanish football having represented Real Madrid before his switch to Stamford Bridge 18 months ago.
He concedes The Blues face a huge task if they are to knock out Barca but is certain the tie will prove a fascinating contest.
However, the midfielder believes the first leg at Camp Nou could prove decisive and has backed the team that comes out on top to progress.
"Chelsea and Barcelona are two great clubs and it will be a great game," he stated.
"We were all together following it (the draw) and at the beginning we were shocked because Barca are a great team who are doing well.
"The first game will be very important and I believe that whoever wins that will go through to the semi-finals."
