Trio share 32 goals

Berta Brau

Ronaldinho, Thierry Henry and Samuel Eto'o have scored 42.6 per cent of FC Barcelona's goals this season. A high figure for just three players that will be asked to lead the team's attack in the absence of Lionel Messi.

The injury to the Argentinian means that Barça will have to play their next few games without their most effective player, as the has netted 15 goals already this season. Nevertheless, Frank Rijkaard does have Ronaldinho, Henry and Eto'o available and between them they have scored 32 goals, which amounts to a 42.6 per cent of the team's goals in the league, Champions League and Copa del Rey.

Henry top scorer

Eto'o has scored ten goals, with nine in the league and one in Europe while Ronaldinho has nine goals with eight in the league and one in the Champions League.

All areas

fcb-recre0708_x15x.jpgThe Blaugrana's capacity for scoring goals is strengthened if the fact that 15 players have scored this season in all competitions is taken into consideration. Also, it should be recognised that the goals have come from all areas of the pitch with the defenders, midfielders and forwards all netting to help Barça each the current tally of 75 goals.

Xavi has seven

Therefore, despite the size of the hole that Messi leaves, FC Barcelona do have enough strength-in-depth to continue scoring and ensuring that the forward's absence is not noticed to greatly.
