The Argentine finally scored against Chelsea in his ninth game against the Premier League side on Tuesday, canceling out Willian’s opener and giving Barca the away-goal advantage ahead of the second leg.

Overall, it was Messi’s 98th goal in the competition and he is now just two strikes short of becoming the second player to reach 100 goals in the Champions League.

It was also Messi’s 22nd goal at this stage of the competition – more than any other player in history.
