Chelsea have appealed for supporters to get in contact with information after claims some were allegedly hurt by police and security using batons outside the Nou Camp before their Champions League defeat to Barcelona.
Antonio Conte's side were knocked out 4-1 on aggregate at the last-16 stage of the competition after two goals from Lionel Messi helped Barca cruise to a 3-0 victory on the night.
Video footage has emerged from after the game but fans have told Sky Sports News that aggressive tactics were also used before the match and some missed the start of the game, with Chelsea keen to hear from any supporters affected.
