Barcelona breaks 100-goal barrier

Barcelona has crossed the landmark of 100 goals in all its competitions this season, becoming the first club to in Europe's top five leagues to do so.


Barcelona defeated Athletic Bilbao 3-0 on Saturday.

Barcelona is the first team in Europe's top-five leagues to score 100 goals in all competitions this season. Luis Enrique's side reached the milestone thanks to a >3-0 victory over Athletic Bilbao at Camp Nou on Saturday - a result that moved it a point behind La Liga leader Real Madrid, having played two games more.

Paco Alcacer and Lionel Messi scored in the first half before Aleix Vidal struck the 100th of its campaign with a bouncing half-volley that eluded goalkeeper Gorka Iraizoz. Monaco soon reached the 100-mark itself thanks to an emphatic 3-0 victory over Ligue 1 title rival Nice later on Saturday.

Valere Germain and a double from Radamel Falcao took Leonardo Jardim's side to triple figures with a win that puts it three points clear at the top of the table. Real Madrid is in third in those goal standings with 98, with fourth-placed Arsenal a full 14 further back.
