The kid with the big numbers

Roger Bogunyà

He’s only 17, he’s not a world star and this is his first season in the First Division, yet Bojan Krkic is already racking up the numbers of a great footballer with FC Barcelona in the League.

This Sunday Bojan had his best match of the season so far in Barça’s first team, scoring two goals to round off the victory over Valladolid (4-1). Those two strikes give him a total of 7 in the League.

A goal every 134 minutes

According to Professional Football League statistics, Bojan Krkic has played 939 minutes in the League, which means he scores every 134 minutes. This strike rate is only bettered by Luis Fabiano (scores every 79 minutes), Nihat (every 123), Rossi (every 118) and Bojan’s team-mate Eto'o (every 85).

Nine times in the starting XI

In those 9 games Bojan has scored six goals, the first one on his debut against Villarreal. The other five came against Murcia, Athletic, Almería and Valladolid. He’s also come on as a sub 14 times, notching one goal against Recreativo, and hasn’t played a single minute in only six games (Racing, Levante, Sevilla and Atlético de Madrid away and Athlétic and Almería at home).

Creates chances for his team-mates

In addition to these goals Bojan has also hit the woodwork twice, against Valladolid in the Nuevo José Zorrilla and against Espanyol at Montjuïc. The young striker also creates chances for his team-mates and already has three assists in the League.

Against Valladolid as well

He gave assists to Eto'o for Barça’s first goal and to Iniesta for the second and so had a hand in all four goals scored by the Catalans. He also had most shots on goal at four and was the striker who took part in most moves during the game.

Fourth highest goalscorer
With his two goals against Valladolid, Bojan Krkic has become the fourth highest goalscorer for Barça in the League alongside Thierry Henry. Eto'o (11 goals), Messi (9 goals) and Ronaldinho (8 goals) head the list.
