Despite Chelsea’s poor start to the season, they are no pusheovers and already showed this by making sure Atletico Madrid didn’t qualify from the group stage.

Barcelona ace Lionel Messi is looking forward to the encounter in two months time.

One thing the Barcelona fans can be rest assured is that Messi would be more determined than ever to score against Chelsea.

Despite his goal scoring feats in Spain and Europe, Messi has found it hard to beat any Chelsea goalkeeper.

The Argentine has faced the Blues a total of 8 times in a period of 10 years since he became a Barcelona regular.

A total of two goalkeeper- Petr Cech and Hilario, have stopped Messi from scoring.

Messi has played two group games, four semi-finals and two last 16 games against the Blues. And has faced Cech six times while he has tried to score against Hilario two times (group games).

But standing in goal for Chelsea would be Thibaut Courtois who Messi knows a lot about scoring against from his time at Atletico Madrid.
