Barcelona’s Attacking Prowess Summed Up In One Stunning Statistic

Barcelona and creative, attacking football we all know well by now go hand-in-hand, particularly in La Liga where the Blaugrana often blow their opposition out of the water. 

Key to this threat in the final third is of course Barca’s world-class front three of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar, who between them usually manage to find the breakthrough for the Camp Nou club.

So far this season the triumvirate has stuck away an astounding 33 goals in all competitions to put the Catalan club just two points off Real Madrid at the top of the La Liga table whilst they sit at the summit of Group C in the Champions League with two group stage games to go.

In combination with their amazing goalscoring threat though is their ability to find each other in attacking areas, as well as other teammates, leading to one extremely impressive stat the trio will surely be proud of.

Barca boss Luis Enrique will be equally pleased with how his frontmen have been performing over the last couple of years, having brought him two league and cup doubles as well as a Champions League title.

With Barcelona finely poised to capture even more silverware come May 2017, Messi, Suarez and Neymar keeping up this kind of frightening form will be pivotal.
