Barcelona, Real Madrid & Liverpool: The 30 highest scoring trios of the 21st century

Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez & Neymar - the greatest trio ever?

Will we ever see a better attacking trio than Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar?

It's not very likely, with the South American stars writing themselves into the footballing history books during their time together at Barcelona.

They were ridiculously effective in attack and, more importantly, incredibly entertaining to watch.

In each of their three seasons operating alongside one another, the awesome trident scored over 100 goals combined.

To put that achievement into perspective, a century of goals or more in a season has only been achieved by an attacking trio on seven occasions since the turn of the millennium.

So with that in mind, let's take a look at the 30 most prolific goalscoring trios of the 21st century, with all data sourced from Transfermarkt.
