- But Messi has scored just one goal in his seven meetings against Italian opposition in the Champions League, that being a penalty against AC Milan in the group stage of this season's competition.

- Milan's former Barcelona striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has scored in five of his last seven Champions League games.

- Milan have won just four of their last 16 games in the Champions League.
