Luis Suarez is close to becoming one of the top five goalscorers in Barcelona's history. The Uruguayan took his tally to 155 with his effort against Real Sociead on Saturday.

Ahead of Suarez are Josep Escolà (158), who he now has in his sights. Even further in front are Lionel Messi (556), César (232), Kubala (194) and Samitier (184).

Suarez will overtake Escolà before long. A hat-trick against PSV Eindhoven would draw him level with the former Barça captain, who was active between 1934 and 1949. 

Barça's No.9 says it "would be incredible to achieve a place in Barcelona's history. It's something I never imagined I would do, honestly. 

"Everyone knows I always dreamed of playing for Barcelona, so to then [get into the top five] is genuinely wonderful." 

Suarez's goals are broken down across five seasons: 25 in his first campaign (2014-15), 59 in 2015-16, 37 in 2016-17, 31 in 2017-18 and, in the current campaign, 2018-19, he has three (two vs. Huesca and one vs. Real Sociedad).
