It’s set to be a tense night for English clubs in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Spurs travel to Barcelona needing to better Inter’s result, who host PSV, in order to process from Group B.

But will they be able to stop Lionel Messi and co. to reach the last-16 of the competition?

At the same time, Liverpool know they need to beat Napoli either 1-0 or by two clear goals to guarantee qualification from their group also consisting of Paris Saint-Germain.

Both sides face tough tasks, that’s for sure.

Spurs’ task is probably more difficult considering they have to face Messi.

The Argentine has a brilliant record against English clubs and Barca decided to let everyone know just how good his record is against Premier League’s finest.

Their post shows how Messi has scored nine goals against Arsenal, six goals against Manchester City, three goals against Chelsea, two goals against Manchester United and two goals against Spurs.

However, there’s no ball emoji next to Liverpool’s name - just an unamused face.

Barcelona's Lionel Messi (C) pushes past...

That’s because Messi has faced Liverpool twice in the Champions League - and once in a friendly - without scoring.

Liverpool and Barca met at the last-16 stage back in 2007, with Rafa Benitez's side progressing on away goals after winning 2-1 at the Camp Nou.


And it’s a fact that Liverpool fans enjoyed being reminded by Barcelona’s official Twitter account.

But Liverpool will need to ensure that there’s an opportunity of facing Messi and Barca in the knockout rounds of the Champions League this season.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are currently third in their group and must beat Napoli to stand any chance of progressing.

Despite beating PSG and Red Star Belgrade at Anfield, the Premier League leaders have lost all three of their away games to leave their Champions League future in jeopardy.
