Eto'o makes Liga century

Jordi Clos

At the Ruiz de Lopera, the Cameroonian scored his 100th goal in the Liga for Barcelona. He is only the third player in club history to manage the feat.

At Betis, Samuel Eto'o has gone further in his claim to be one of the finest goalscorers this sport has ever known. His 45th minute goal off the rebound of a penalty that had been saved by Ricardo was his 22nd of the season, and his 100th league goal in a Barça shirt. He has done this in just five seasons, one of which, 2005/06, he was the top scorer in the championship. And to think that he could easily have scored even more if he hadn’t missed so much of the 2006/07 and 2007/08 seasons through injury.

César and Kubala

Amazing stats

Eto'o only needed 131 games to make his century, an average of 0.76 goals a game. In total he has scored 120 in 177 official matches (0.67 a game). As well as what are now 101 league goals, he has scored 15 in the Champions League, 2 in the Cup and 2 in the Spanish Super Cup.
