MSN is six goals away from becoming the best scoring trio in Barcelona history

With Neymar Jr's brace against Paris Saint-Germain, the Brazilian reached the staggering 30-goal mark this season, doubling his total from his first campaign with Barcelona. Lionel Messi has scored a whopping 46 goals this season, while Luis Suárez has netted 19 scores so far, most of them in 2015.

It is clear at this point that the trio known as 'MSN' works well together, which wasn't the prediction of most when the Uruguayan was bought from Liverpool last summer. But the truth is, if they keep scoring goals left and right, they could make history in just a few games, and finish their first season together doing something amazing.

If 'MSN' scores another six goals this season, they will reach 101 goals together, which would surpass the most prolific trio in club history -- Messi, Thierry Henry and Samuel Eto'o, who combined to bag 100 scores in the 2008-09 season. If the 2015 version reaches the 99-goal mark, they'll become the second best trio in Barça history, surpassing the group of Messi, Villa and Pedro that scored 98 goals in 2010-11.

With six matches left in La Liga, two certain games in the Champions League semifinal (there's a chance of a third), and the Copa del Rey Final, in which all members of MSN are expected to start, we shouldn't be surprised if they break an enormous record in their first season.

But hey, they can't work together, right?
