Six scorers in first six games

Sergi Nogueras

FC Barcelona have already shown this season that they are playing as a team with no less than six different players having scored in the first six official games of the campaign.

The goals have also come from all area of the pitch too, with defenders, midfielder and forwards chipping into help the side remain unbeaten in the opening weeks of the term. Ronaldinho, Thierry Henry, Rafa Márquez, Andrés Iniesta and Lionel Messi have all registered their names on the scoresheet and the list is sure to continue to grow.

Messi tops the charts

Atlético's Sergio Agüero, Villarreal's Giuseppe Rossi, Sevilla's Frédéric Kanouté and Real Madrid's Wesley Sneijder also have scored four times so far. Messi has also scored in the Champions League too as he netted one of Barça's three goals against Lyon last week.

Two newcomers

Two of the Blaugrana's summer signings have bagged their first goals for the club withThierry Henry scoring in the Champions League win against Lyon recently, while Touré Yaya scored a superb effort against Athletic Bilbao in the league.

The same position

Curiously, both players have registered their goals while playing in the same position on the left side of the three-pronged attack. The Brazilian netted twice against Athletic Bilbao, while Iniesta scored against Real Zaragoza on Wednesday.

Nine months later

Of the six players, Rafa Márquez is, perhaps, the most unusual as he had not scored at all for the Blaugrana since January. The Mexican international stole forward to head home the fourth goal against Zaragoza in midweek.
