Messi, one of the most prolific footballer of this generation has hit the back of the net against many clubs he has faced in his career. However, he has failed to find the back of the net against Chelsea in 8 games.
Of the eight times Messi has taken on the Stamford bridge side in the last 12 years, he has been on the winning side just once, in 2005-06.
He did have an integral role in the most exciting moment between the two sides in recent years when he set up Andres Iniesta for the big winner in their 2009 semi-final leg at Stamford Bridge. However, in eight games against the Blues, Messi has never found the net.
Will that change on 20th February?
