On Tuesday night, Lionel Messi once again played against Chelsea and most of the fans were wondering if he would be able to score against Chelsea finally. Before this game, Messi had played 8 games, amounting to 655 minutes against Chelsea.

Taking 29 shots, he failed to convert a single shot but it all changed when he finally scored an equalizing goal against them in Champions League round of 16. Thus, we thought this is the right time to discuss some other players who have always struggled against particular teams:

Lionel Messi always remained on the radar of many people for not scoring against Chelsea but he has finally scored against them. Keeping in mind that scoring 1 goal in 9 games is not a huge achievement for Messi, we should also take a note on Ronaldo's record against Chelsea.

Ronaldo is one of the best goalscorers in the history of football but he too, has always struggled against Chelsea. He has played 15 games against Chelsea, scoring just 1 goal.

said that, we should keep in mind that his only goal against Chelsea came in the final of UEFA Champions League in 2008, which was enough to help Manchester United lift the trophy.
