Barcelona will secure the last 16 of the Champions League 2019/2020 if they defeat Borussia Dortmund on Matchday 5 Group F at Camp Nou, Wednesday (11/27/2019). But the Catalan team needs to increase the scoring aggressiveness if it wants to qualify.
Ernesto Valverde’s side has only scored four goals in four group stage matches, so far this season, with Luis Suarez scoring two goals, Lionel Messi added one and the last came from an own Slavic Prague own goal. Since the Champions League was founded, Barcelona has scored fewer goals just once at the point of this tournament.
Meanwhile, as many as 22 of the 32 teams currently appearing in the competition have scored more goals than the Blaugrana. Barcelona needs other players to score goals, including Antoine Griezmann, whose performances in Europe are below average.
For Messi, this will be a challenge. The Argentine striker has never scored against Dortmund in the Champions League.
Messi has scored 116 goals in 11,770 minutes of European football. That means the Argentine scored every 101 minutes, 28 seconds.
In European competition, Messi has faced 41 different clubs from 16 countries. He just has never won six teams, namely Atletico Madrid, Benfica, Dortmund, Inter Milan, Rubin Kazan, and Udinese on the European scene.
Chelsea is the team that Messi often faces (835 minutes from ten matches). He did not score in his first 730 minutes against the Blues but scored three goals in two matches against them in 2017/2018.
Whereas Arsenal is the team most frequently conceded by Messi from other teams in UEFA competition, nine goals in 447 minutes consisting of six matches. That means an average of one goal every 49 minutes, 40 seconds.
Of the five biggest European soccer countries, the German team seems to be the best match for Messi. He scored an average every 72 minutes and 30 seconds against the Bundesliga club.
While goals are difficult to create Messi against teams from England (every 101 minutes, 12 seconds), France (128 minutes), Italy (158 minutes, 40 seconds), and Spain (187 minutes, 30 seconds).
