Berta Brau

Ronaldinho played his 200th official game for FC Barcelona against Osasuna on Sunday. In the course of those matches the Brazilian has scored 92 goals and won 5 team titles and 3 individual ones.

On 30 August 2003 Ronaldo de Asis Moreira, known the world over as Ronaldinho, made his debut in an official match for Barça against Athletic de Bilbao.

The first goal

Barça was losing 1-0 to Sevilla when in the 58th minute Ronaldinho got into the action. He moved forward from midfield and smashed home a 30 metre piledriver that made Barça fans realise that they had a very special player on their hands.

200 games in 7 competitions

A great goalscorer

Since he came to Barcelona, Ronaldinho has become synonymous with magic, creativity, ball juggling and above all goals. That’s because he has notched a total of 92 in the seven competitions he has played in, having only failed to score in the UEFA Super Cup. In the 2006-07 season the Brazilian was the club’s top goalscorer in the League with a total of 21.

Team and individual titles
