Life without Messi is not easy... but is more bearable if you have to players like Luis Suárez and Neymar. The Uruguayan and the Brazilian have become the best attacking couple and scored most of the goals since Messi got injured, last September 26.

La Liga

In La Liga, the two players have scored 100% of Barcelona's goals: Suárez (6) and Neymar (5). In the same match against Las Palmas, Suárez was the author of Barça's goals, he scored 1 against Rayo and did a hat-trick versus Eibar.

Meanwhile, Neymar scored the only goal against Sevilla and got a great poker of goals at the Camp Nou in the match against Rayo Vallecano last week.

In fact, apart from the three untouchables (Messi - Suárez - Neymar) only Bartra and Vermaelen have been able to score in the domestic competition. Neither the strikers Sandro and Munir nor the midfielder have scored after 9 rounds.

Champions League

In Europe, we find more scorers. Suárez did 1 —vs Leverkusen— of 4 and Neymar any. Sergi Roberto scored the other in Germany and Rakitic did two against BATE.

In resume, Suárez and Neymar have scored 12 of the 15 goals (80%) without Messi on the pitch. Regarding the results, the club has won five of six games and has continued to lead La Liga and the Champions League group stage. Messi is every day closer to come back...
