Since year 2000, Barcelona have won about 34 major trophies, if they had the attribute of letting in goals at will, they wouldn't have accomplished so much. Football success is about goals and no football club that lets in goals can achieve much.
No player playing outside Europe will be able to score many goals against Barcelona because they only meet once in a while (the Champions League), the player who would score the most goals against them will have to play in the Spanish league because they will definitely meet in the La Liga Santander, may be the Copa Del Rey, Supercopa de Espana and even the Champions League. This is what has made a player score 20 goals against the Blaugrana, the most an individual footballer has been able to score past them.
In these games, Cristiano scored 20 goals and nobody has scored more goals. When Cristiano and Messi face each other in this games, they naturally want to outdo each other because they are conscious that the football world is focused on them.
Before Ronaldo, Alfredo di Stefano who Real Madrid named the youth pitch after was the lead scorer against Barcelona but it is now Cristiano.
Who will break this record, Vinicius, Rodrygo or Hazard?
