Can you name the 10 teams Lionel Messi has failed to score against?


Lionel Messi finally broke his scoring duck against Chelsea with his goal in Barcelona‘s Champions League visit to Stamford Bridge.

It took Messi nine appearances against the Blues to score a goal, quite remarkable when you consider he has scored 542 goals in 632 appearances for the club, finding the back of the net on average once every 0.86 appearances.

He also recently broke another duck, against Spanish club Girona, having failed to score in their meeting earlier this season. However, he put that right at the weekend with two goals in a fantastic display.

That means there are now just 10 clubs out there who the Argentine has made at least one appearance against without finding the back of the net. We want to know how many you can name.

You’ve got 10 minutes, and to help you out you’ve got the country in which each club plays its domestic football. Good luck, and don’t forget to tweet us your scores @planetfutebol.
