Leo Messi, top UCL scorer vs English clubs

In 29 games against Premiership sides, the FC Barcelona captain has scored 22 goals - with Spurs' local rivals Arsenal being his number one victim

Leo Messi has scored 106 goals in the UEFA Champions League and a massive 22 of those have been scored against English teams.

He’s far and away the player who has dished out the most damage to Premiership clubs over the year. Cristiano Ronaldo is second on the list, ten behind with 12 goals.

And tomorrow at the Camp Nou (9.00pm CET) he’ll have the chance to add to his growing collection.

Spurs fans reading this will be delighted to see which club has come off worst against the Argentinian, and while Chelsea have managed to get off relatively lightly, Messi has supplied three assists against the Blues as well (plus two against Manchester City and one against Arsenal).

Liverpool is the only team that's currently managed to escape the Messi magic.
