Looking for the full house


Since he arrived at Barça, Samuel Eto’o has scored against all the teams currently in the first division, except Valladolid, who he faces on Sunday. This will be his first match against Valladolid in Barça’s colours.

New opponent, new aim. Samuel Eto’o will try to continue his goal-scoring form in the league, a form which has seen him score ten goals in ten games this season. His next challenge to overcome is Valladolid, who, curiously, are the only team in the first division that the Cameroon star has not scored against in Barça’s colours. In fact, he hasn’t scored against them with any of his previous clubs either.


Also, Eto’o could play his fist game against the Castilians since he came to Barça. It’s worth remembering that Valladolid were relegated to the second division in 2003/04, when Eto’o was with Mallorca. Since then the number 9 hasn’t had the opportunity to face the Castilians as he was injured for the first meeting earlier in the season.

Favourite opposition

He has scored six goals against the Islanders in only four games with Barça. It’s the same story with Levante – six goals in four games. Next are Racing and Osasuna who he has scored against five times each.

Other teams

Furthermore, Eto’o has scored against every other team in the first division. Apart from those already mentioned, he has scored four against Racing and Zaragoza; three against Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, Valencia, Atletic Club Bilbao and Getafe; two against Murcia, Recreativo and Seville, while Villarreal and Espanyol have proved more difficult opposition with Eto’o only managing one goal against each.
Looking for the full house
In fact, up to last week, there were two clubs in the first division which Eto’o had failed to score against: Almeria and Valladolid. Eto’o didn’t let the Andalusians of the hook last week by scoring Barca’s second. He hopes to complete a full house on Sunday in the Nou Camp.
