Lionel Messi has played against Barcelona's Champions League last 16 opponents Chelsea eight times and not been able to find the net. He has scored 531 goals in 629 games since his debut with Barca B in the Segunda B on March 6, 2004.

Since then he's picked up four golden boots, four Spanish division top scoring awards (2010, 12, 13, 17) and five Champions League top scorer wards (09, 10, 12, 13, 17). 


Chelsea have resisted Messi 8 times, while Rubin Kazan have stayed unbeaten 4 times, Inter thrice, Liverpool and Benfica twice each. Udinese have only faced Messi once, but he did not score then either.
