Barça hit yet another six

Berta Brau

Malaga became the fourth team to be hit for six by Barça this season. In fact, in just four games, they fall just one short of the number of goals the bottom placed club has managed in the entire championship.

Scoring goals in La Liga is no easy task, let alone six in the same match. But FC Barcelona have managed to do that no less than four times this season. Not only are they winning games, but they are doing so with sublime conviction.

Six appeal

Before Malaga, Valladolid and Atlético Madrid had suffered similar humiliations at the Camp Nou. Sporting Gijón were the first side to suffer so devastatingly at the feet of the Barça goal machine, and in front of their own fans at El Molinón, where all they could muster was one consolidation goal in response.

24 goals in four games

Yet more thrashings

Other high scoring teams

There is no arguing that Barça are the league’s top scoring team. Real Madrid are a fair way short, but have also dealt out some punishments this season, including a 7-1 win against Sporting and a 6-1 win against Betis. No other side has managed to score six goals in a game this season, although Atlético Madrid, Racing Santander, Getafe and Osasuna have managed five.
Barça hit yet another six
84 goals in total
Barça are on course for a record breaking season after scoring 84 goals in 28 games. That is more than double the number scored so far by 14 fellow first division clubs. Only Real Madrid (66), Atlético Madrid (56), Valencia (48), Villarreal and Malaga (both 45) have managed to score moiré than half of the number of goals Barça have put away.
