Pep's City edges Barca in goals scored
Against Eibar, Ernesto Valverde enjoyed goals from Antoine Griezmann, Leo Messi and Luis Suárez. A 'hat trick' from their 'gsm' that helped them, in the meantime, return to the top of the league after Real Madrid lost away to Mallorca.
In the 9 matchdays played, Barca have scored 23 goals. A stratospheric figure that is only beaten by Manchester City who have scored 28. A whim of fate, Pep Guardiola's side have the same points as Barcelona, but are very far away from a Liverpool side who have won every match in the Premier League.
The Bundesliga continues to be tyrannised by Bayern Munich, who have scored 22. That is 1 more goal than PSG, who have 24 points after a brilliant start.
However, the biggest surprise is in Italy, where Atalanta, the surprise package last season, have scored 21 goals in 8 matches. Inter Milan and Juventus have only managed 18 and 15 respectively.
