Luis Suarez closing on new Barcelona record

Barcelona ace Luis Suarez is closing on a new club record.

The Uruguayan is about to enter the history books of FC Barcelona. With the two goals he scored on Wednesday against Inter Milan in the Champions League, El Charrúa has accumulated a total of 182 goals with the Blaugrana.

Now he has a shot at the mythical striker of the twenties and thirties, José Samitier, who scored 184 goals in his career at Barcelona. Samitier is the fourth highest goalscorer for the club.

Ladislao Kubala is third on 194, then César Rodríguez second on 232, and teammate and friend, Leo Messi with 603.
