Messi, Neymar & Suarez Closing In On BBC

Barcelona’s attacking trio of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez are closing the gap on Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo – known as BBC.

The Barca trio all got on the scoresheet in Sunday’s 5-2 win over Athletic, which took their total tally to 42 goals.

Messi has now scored 23 goals this season, while Neymar follows with 16 and Suarez has scored three league goals.

However, Real Madrid’s BBC is still ahead by seven goals. Ronaldo leads the pack with 28 La Liga strikes, while Benzema follows with 11 and Bale has scored 10.

Ronaldo, Bale and Benzema have only scored nine goals (three apiece) in 2015, while Messi alone has scored eight since the turn of the year.

Neymar follows with five strikes in 2015 and Suarez has scored twice this year.

Barcelona have gone on a nine-match unbeaten run in all competitions and closed the gap on the La Liga leaders to just one point.

To make things worse, in their humiliating 4-0 defeat to Atletico Madrid, BBC didn’t produce a single shot on goal.

While Carlo Ancelotti clearly has to sort out his defence, Real Madrid remain highly reliant on their three front men, who have scored 70 percent of the club's goals this season.

BBC will have the chance to extend their lead when they face Deportivo La Coruna – a side which they thrashed 8-2 in first round, with Ronaldo scoring a hattrick and Bale a brace.
