Video of Lionel Messi's 22 goals against English clubs in the Champions League

The Champions League quarter-final draw has been made and the excitement levels are through the roof.

Ajax will take on Juventus, Liverpool will play Porto, Tottenham will meet Manchester City and Manchester United are up against Barcelona.

It means that there’s still a possibility of a Liverpool v Manchester City or a Lionel Messi v Cristiano Ronaldo final.

April can’t come quickly enough.

Man United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will return to the stadium where he enjoyed his finest moment as a footballer.

It was in the Camp Nou that Solskjaer scored that late, late winner as Man United defeated Bayern Munich in the 1999 Champions League final.

He will be hoping for similar glory when Man United head to Barcelona but it won’t be easy.

Messi’s 22 goals v English clubs

Lionel Messi is in the form of his life, the Argentinian forward scoring 36 goals in all competitions this season.

And his record against English clubs is brilliant.

Messi has scored 22 goals against English sides in the Champions League, more than any other player in the competition.

Now he gets to go up against a Man United defence that has been vulnerable at times in the campaign.

A video of all 22 of Messi’s goals against English clubs, including his goals against Man United in the 2009 and 2011 finals, shows that the Red Devils may have their work cut out.

Good luck stopping him, Ole.

The Norwegian has done remarkably since replacing Jose Mourinho – initially on a temporary basis – in December.

The best moment during his brief stint in charge came in the last 16, when Man United won 3-1 in Paris to become the first team in Champions League history to progress after losing a home first leg by 2-0 or more.

“It’s this club. It’s what we do, that’s Man Utd,” Solskjaer said, per BBC Sport. “That’s the Champions League, it’s what it does.”

Solskjaer, who will surely be appointed Mourinho’s permanent successor, believes the club can win the competition.

“We can go all the way,” he added. “Of course we fancy ourselves, but we just have to wait for the draw and then take the game as it comes.”
