Home grown goals

Sandra Sarmiento

Seventeen of Barca's 25 goals so far this season have been scored by players who've come up through the Masia. Messi heads the scorers with 8 goals to his name so far.

The home grown stars dominated the pre-season with Bojan, Pedro and Jeffren all proving decisive and once the season proper got under way Xavi. Messi and Pique joined the scoring. The Masia players have proved key to the success of the team so far, scoring 68% of the team's goals.

Messi the leading scorer

When he did score though, he really chose the right moment, grabbing an important opener at San Mames in the first leg of the Spanish Super Cup, following that with the winning strike against Shaktar in the European Super Cup. Last week he got the second against Dynamo Kiev and the winner against Almeria at the weekend.

Great start from Bojan

Unfortunately he also got injured in that game and was out until October 2. He's back in training now and sure to be a boost to the squad in the coming games.


2009-09-22_PARTIDO_16.JPGPique has already bagged two goals, one less than he managed all last season. He finished off a great assist from Ibrahimovic against Racing and came on from the bench to score in style in the win at Malaga. Both goals had the mark of a classic centre......forward!
