Who’s scored against Spanish opposition?

Salomon Kalou, who netted a brace against Atletico Madrid in 2009, and Joe Cole, who was on target in a famous win over Valencia at the Mestalla and against Real Betis, complete those who netted a brace v Spanish sides.

Next up, those who scored three. It’s a list that contains a name regularly seen on the scoresheet for the Blues, going right back to the start of our history in 1905 and all the way up to the present day: own goal.

Two of them came in ties against Barcelona early on in our Champions League journey, in 2005 and 2006 – the first netted by Juliano Belletti at Camp Nou, just a couple of years before he made the move to west London. Then there’s one by Correa of Atletico Madrid in a 4-0 win at the Bridge in 2009.

There’s only three names left on our list and the next won’t come as much of a surprise to anyone. Step forward Frank Lampard.

The Blues head coach was involved in nearly all our memorable tussles with Barcelona during the epic seven-year rivalry between the clubs and after netting in the famous win in 2005 that many regard as the best Chelsea game of all time, Super Frank netted two more against them.
