Quiz! Can you name the 31 Champions League clubs that Lionel Messi has scored against?

Lionel Messi Lyon goal

Bastardly pop quiz: according to Transfermarkt, there are only six clubs in the Champions League that Lionel Messi has played against but never scored past. Can you name any of them?*

The rest of these poor saps haven't been so fortunate, ranging from the side that's leaked nine goals in only six meetings with the diminutive genius, to those who've managed a relatively clean escape from little Leo.   

The 31-year-old has netted hat-tricks, four-goal hauls and once even five in a game on his way to reaching 108 Champions League goals; the most of all-time but for a certain Portuguese pal of his.

So today we’re quizzing you on the teams Messi has scored past in the Champions League, via goals from penalties, mesmeric runs, free-kicks and (yes!) headers.

Five minutes are on the clock with each club's respective nation, and then we'd like you to share a screenshot of your score with us on Twitter @FourFourTwo – we’ll retweet your efforts if you don’t give answers away, to see how you stack up against everyone else. 

* Atletico Madrid (4 apps), Inter Milan (3), Liverpool (2), Rubin Kazan (2), Benfica (1), Udinese (1).
