Leo Messi will be back in the spotlight on Wednesday night and looking to add to his 12-goal tally against Italian clubs in the UEFA Champions League.

Messi has played 19 games against teams from Italy in his career, and although he went scoreless through the first six, his dozen goals have come in seven of the last 13 matches he’s played against them.

Messi’s favorite victim is AC Milan, against whom he has scored eight goals. Messi has scored two each against both AS Roma and Juventus, the renowned defensive power.

Two of Messi’s goals against Milan came in Barça’s 4–0 home win to overturn an aggregate deficit in the 2012/13 Champions League last 16.
