10 of the greatest Barcelona goalscorers of all time
When you think of Barcelona, several things come to mind. Among those should be success, prestige, and goals – lots and lots of them.
The Catalan club have had a firm grip on the Spanish top flight for a very long time now, and with several top-class goal-scorers in their ranks, it’s certainly not hard to see why. Over the years, some remarkable attackers have worn the famous shirt, but which players have made the most impact when it comes to putting the ball in the back of the net?
We take a look below.

#1 Lionel Messi
It’s hard to imagine anyone surpassing Lionel Messi as Barcelona’s highest ever scorer. With 461 official goals (and counting) to his name, the diminutive Argentinean will forever be remembered as the greatest player to ever wear the shirt.
Messi has also scored the most goals in European competition for the club, he is a five-time Balon d’Or winner, and it’s highly likely that he’ll win it again before he hangs up the boots.
His time at Barcelona has seen an extended period of success sweep through. Since his introduction to the first team, the club has gone on to win La Liga on eight occasions and the UEFA Champions League four times.
