Barça has more scorers than ever

Pierre Emerick Aubameyang became Barça’s 19th scorer at Mestalla in the league. The season in which the team has lost its main supplier, there has been no other choice but to diversify production. The departure of Lionel Messi, Pichichi eight times, left a deep chasm that has not been closed.

The distribution of goals between so many players reaches a historical record

Barça is achieving it little by little, which is why along the way it has lost three titles (Cup, Super Cup and Champions), nor does it dream of the fourth (League) and harbors illusions with the fifth, which is played on Thursday face face to face with Napoli in the Europa League. The arrival of three forwards in the winter market (Aubameyang, Ferran Torres and Adama Traoré) help to cover the depression that cracked the Camp Nou last August.

Aubameyang managed to join the list of scorers at Mestalla with a brace, or a treble as you consider it. Called to be the nine of Barça, in his second ownership, first in the League, he certified his fame with two accurate shots that put him on track the valuable triumph of Valencia.

Memphis is still Barça’s top scorer and has only played half an hour in three months.

18 filmmakers last year

Last season is the only similar precedent, even with Messi and Griezmann in the team, in which 18 different scorers scored in the League. They were 19 in the calculation of the 54 games of all competitions (Pique he scored in the Champions League and the Cup). Barça enjoyed five necessary collaborators who benefited from as many own goals.

This year does not help or God. Nobody has made a mistake in favor of the azulgranas, helpless from the first day when Messi He left and weakened in the last one when Antoine Griezmann, at midnight after the market closed, returned to Atlético and was replaced by Luuk de Jong.

Araujo has the same three goals as Frenki and Ansu. And Aubameyang if you add the shot by Pedri.

historical record

In the Barça of Ronald Koeman, Sergi Barjuan and Xavi Hernández, 19 players have scored goals in the League and another two in the other competitions. An unprecedented historical record. In low amounts, yes, to the point that Memphis Depay is still the top scorer in the League (8) and has only played half an hour in the championship in the last three months after suffering a muscle injury in December with a recurrence in January . His comeback is imminent. He will get back on the plane to go to Naples.

Behind Memphis comes Luuk (4) and Ansu Fati, Araujo and Frenkie de Jong (3). It would be necessary to add Aubameyang who considers him the author of the third goal for involuntarily lending his back to Pedri. Injuries have been essential to limit the goalscoring production of footballers.

Martin Braithwaite scored two goals on matchday one and hasn’t returned to the championship since September, Sergi Roberto has been left with two goals because he hasn’t played since October 27. Nico and Gavi plus the late Philipe Coutinho also have a pair. Piqué, Busquets, Alba, Agüero -another misfortune of the campaign, forced to retire due to his arrhythmias-, Ferran Jutglà, Abde and Alves have contributed a unit.
