The blaugranes are the team in La Liga with most goals from substitutes
Barça have scored 35 goals in 14 league games so far this season and are top scorers in La Liga. Part of that success is down to the contribution of players who have come on as substitutes. With Arturo Vidal’s winner against Leganés, Barça have recorded seven goals from players who have come on during a game, ahead of second placed Getafe, Levante and Real Madrid on five.
The blaugranes are also top of the rankings across Europe’s top five leagues with French side Angers and Serie A outfit Atalanta on six. Let’s have a look at the work of Barça’s ‘supersubs’:
Arturo Vidal: 2 goals
Week 2 (Barça 5-2 Betis): On 74’ scores 77’.
Week 14 (Leganés 1-2 Barça): On 57’ scores 79’
Luis Suárez: 2 goals
Week 4 (Barça 5-2 Valencia): On 60’ scores 61’ and 82’.
Ansu Fati: 1 goal
Week 3 (Osasuna 2-2 Barça): On 46’ scores 51’.

Week 3 (Osasuna 2-2 Barça): On 53’ scores 64’.

Week 13 (Barça 4-1 Celta): On 23’ scores 85’.
Arturo Vidal’s best season for goals
