93 goals have been scored between the trio this campaign, which is a remarkable feat for two reasons, one being that this is the first time they have all played together and to strike up such a good understanding in a short time of space should not be underestimated.

The other being that Suarez missed the first three months of the season due to suspension but has still managed to contribute 19 goals to Neymar’s 28 and Messi’s 46 and should they reach a century of goals it will equal the record of a previous star-studded forward line at the Camp Nou.

In the 2008-09 season Messi was joined alongside Samuel Eto’o and former Arsenal striker Thierry Henry and they notched exactly 100 goals to help the Catalan giants win the La Liga title, Champions League and Copa Del Rey.
