Goals all round

Miriam Nadal

Nine Barça players have already scored in the 2007-08. 25% of the goals this season have been scored by midfielders.

These statistics relate to both League and Champions League matches. Rijkaard’s side has scored 21 goals so far, 16 in the domestic championship, and that’s one up on the tally at this point last season. But one of the most remarkable things is just how much those goals have been shared among different players – no fewer than nine in total.

Touré scored Barça’s third against Athletic Bilbao (3-1); Iniesta and Márquez scored the third and fourth against Zaragoza (4-1); and Deco and Xavi got the first and third last Sunday’s against Atletico Madrid (3-0).
