Can you name Barca’s top ‘not Messi’ scorer for every season since 2000?
Lionel Messi was Barcelona’s top scorer in 11 out of the 12 seasons between 2009 and 2021 – but can you name their top scorer for every campaign this millennium not including the Argentina international?
You should still be getting 100% on this even without the Messi gimmes so kudos only really comes in doing it ridiculously fast. Our time to beat on this one is
“We are witnessing the best player in every sense,” his manager Pep Guardiola said after he became the club’s all-time top goalscorer at the age of 24 back in 2012. “He does everything, and he does it every three days.”
“I’m sorry for those that want to sit on his throne, but this lad is the best. Hopefully we can enjoy his football for many more years.”
However, Messi isn’t the only great forward that Barcelona have boasted in the 21st century – as the names in this quiz attest.
If you want a slightly more difficult challenge, see if you can name the Barcelona XI that beat Real Madrid 6-2 in 2009?
