Messi has scored 101 goals in the Champions League and played against 37 teams but never scored against Atlético, Benfica, Inter, Liverpool, Rubin and Udinese. Chelsea are off.

Ahead of the Chelsea match on Tuesday evening Lionel Messi had scored 100 goals in European competition - 97 in the Champions League and 3 in the European Super Cup.

Seven becomes six: teams Messi hasn't scored against

He has played against 37 different sides and there were seven who he had not yet hit the back of the net against: Atlético Madrid, Benfica, Chelsea, Inter de Milán, Liverpool, Rubin Kazan and Udinese. The little genius had played 10,272 minutes and scored at a rate of once every 102 minutes.

Chelsea, however, can now be removed from that list despite proving to be one of the most difficult sides for the Argentine. He had played them eight times - 655 minutes - and never scored. But that's all over now after slotting home Iniesta's pass in the 74th minute to level things up at Stamford Bridge, and making it 101 in the Europe.

Out of interest, Messi's favourite opponent is Arsenal, who he has scored nine times against in six games and his best memory has to be against Bayer Leverkusen when he scored five in a 7-0 win in March 2012.
