'MSN' becomes highest scoring trio in Barcelona history

They doubted it when it was formed. Now they kneel before it.

The trio of Lionel Messi, Luis Suárez and Neymar Jr. was assembled to put Barcelona back on the track to glory. They were put together to make history, and to become the single most scary trident on the planet -- sorry, BBC. They are now.

On Tuesday night's 6-0 destruction of Getafe, 'MSN' combined to find the net five times, with a brace each for Messi and Suárez, plus a contribution from Neymar. With that manita of scores, The Death Trio reached 102 goals this season, becoming the highest scoring triumvirate in the history of the Catalan club. In 2015 alone, they have bagged 59 goals together, ten more than the entire Real Madrid roster. Incredible.

In 2008-2009, Messi, Thierry Henry and Samuel Eto'o combined to reach an astonishing 100 goals on that season, in which Barcelona won everything. Now that 'MSN' has surpassed them, does that mean the titles are coming back?

Even if they don't, the doubters can't say anything. The Death Trio works.
