100 goals so far

Sandra Sarmiento

After 44 games so far this season, Barca have notched up 100 goals, with Leo Messi the main scorer with a third of the total.

After a week in which they impressed the whole of Europe with their brilliant football, Barca have now reached the hundred mark, as they get to the business end of the season. The 44 games have seen 34 wins, 7 draws and just 3 defeats- Although last year’s total of 159 goals seems difficult to repeat, with Messi in the form he’s in right now anything can happen.

Most of the squad have scored

Milito, Maxwell, Txgrinski, Abidal, Toure and Jeffren are the only squad members who’ve yet to score – though it has to be said that most of them are defenders. The team’s strikers have scored 75 of the goals, 15 have been from midfielders and the defenders have got 8. Between them, Messi, Ibrahimovic and Pedro have scored 67 goals.

71 home grown players’ goals

Well worked tactics

Apart from goals direct from free kicks, Barca have scored 12 goals from dead ball situations: Bojan started with a goal against Sporting Gijon and Ibrahimovic scored the last in the Calderon.

More points than last year

Barca have won 12 games by at least three goals, the same as last season, though last year they also chalked up a 5-0 and a 6-0 win. This season’s Barca may have scored fewer goals, but they have been more solid at the back and got two more points than at the same stage last season and loss two less games. The average goals per game over the 44 games so far is 2.27.
