[UCL] Messi Wants To Finally Break The Barrier Of The Chelsea Goal Tomorrow


◼️ The Argentine from Barcelona has never score against the blue team, despite facing them eight times.


Barcelona will face Chelsea in the last 16 of the Champions League and, beyond the game, there will be a special seasoning for their great star: Lionel Messi will have the possibility of burying one of the worst records of his career.

The Argentine faced the blue squad eight times but could never score a goal. They crossed paths for the first time in 2006, with a Barça victory 3-1 in the last 16. It was a young crack with a huge imbalance that began to alarm Europe for its tremendous level of play.

In the following season they saw the faces again, now in the group stage. The Spanish team lost 1- 0 at Stamford Bridge and got a 2-2 home draw.

In the 2008/09 season it was time for Andrés Iniesta to come out as the hero with a goal at the last minute.

The best opportunity for Messi to score against the Blues was in the semifinals of the 2011/12 season, but he threw his penalty to the crossbar and Chelsea advanced to the final after winning 3-2.

In the eighth finals of the 2017/18 season, the Valverde team's crack will be able to draw a thorn. Not very big, but painful.

RED NUMBERS AGAINST THE BLUES

In all, throughout his eight games against Chelsea, Messi played 655 minutes, no scored goals, gave two assists, created ten chances and finished 29 times (only 7 at goal). He only won once, plus five draws and two losses.

2012, THE LAST GOAL TO COURTOIS

Messi doesn't score a goal to Thibaut Courtois, current goalkeeper of Chelsea, since 2012, when the Belgian goalkeeper defended the arch of Atletico Madrid.

Since then, they crossed paths in the 2013 Spanish Supercup, in both League matches of the 2013/14 season, and in the Champions League quarterfinals of that same season.

Thus, the rosarino accumulates seven games without converting against the international for Belgium, if you add the match they had in the quarterfinals World Cup Brazil 2014 and ended with a 1-0 victory in Argentina thanks to a goal from Gonzalo Higuain.
