Interesting numbers: Team resilience and Messi magic

FC Barcelona has been extraordinarily resilient in the 2012-13 season: 50% – 12 of the 24 total goals scored by the blaugrana have come in the final 15 minutes of games.

Another important statistic is the influence of Messi’s goals for FC Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League. Whenever he has scored, Barcelona has never lost. In the 35 games that he has scored: 31 wins, 4 draws, 0 defeats.
