The players celebrate one of the six goals against Rayo. / MIGUEL RUIZ - FCB

Barça’s current sweet moment of form sees them Cup finalists, atop the Spanish League and with a 1-2 lead going into the second leg of their Champions League last 16 tie against Manchester City. Key to their success so far has been their impressive goal scoring record – 124 goals – and their solid defence, which has conceded just 27 in the 41 games played  - an average of more than 3 goals a game and a goal difference of 97.

Unstoppable front three

Of the 124 goals scored so far, Barça’s front three of Messi, Neymar and Suárez have accounted for nearly two thirds, with 80 in all. Messi has passed the 40 goal mark for the sixth successive season and is currently on 41, whilst Neymar has 26 and Suárez 13.

That attacking trio are the clearly the most dangerous in Europe right now, with no other side coming close to their scoring figures. Real Madrid are second behind Barça in the goal scoring table with 115, 72 of them from the front three of Cristiano Ronaldo, Bale and Benzema. Bayern Munich (98) and Chelsea (93)  come next with Robben, Lewandowski and Müller accounting for 51 of Pep Guardiola’s side’s goals and Diego Costa, Hazard and Oscar bagging 39 for the London team. Italian league leaders Juventus are back in fifth with 71, with Tévez, Morata and Llorente scoring 37 goals between them.

Solid defence

Barça also have impressive figures at the back too, having conceded just 27 goals (0.65 a game), only bettered by Bayern who’ve conceded 19 at an average of  0.52 and Juventus with 24, but with an average of 0.66 goals a game. Real Madrid are back in fifth with 37 goals conceded at 0.90 a game and Chelsea just ahead of them with 36 at 0.83 a game.

Impressive stats that illuminate Luis Enrique’s team’s strengths at both ends of the pitch!
