Barcelona (FCB).- The season has just started, but it looks like Barça\u2019s locally groomed talent is going to play just as a big a role in this season as in previous ones. Of the 21 players in the FC Barcelona\u2019s first team, 11 came up through the youth system.


Messi as ever

Messi is once again leading the team\u2019s scoring, and is on course to be the league\u2019s top scorer, or even the top goalscorer in all of Europe. He already has an amazing 14 goals to his name.

Cesc surprising

Barça\u2019s new signing is enjoying his highest scoring start to a season as a professional. He found the net in the first four league fixtures and also scored the deciding goal in Monaco. He has five goals in all.

Pedro doing well

The Canary Islander has scored three goals this season. He was on target at the always difficult Valencia\u2019s Mestalla Stadium in the Spanish League and has also scored twice in Europe, against AC Milan and BATE Borisov.

Goalscoring midfielders

Xavi, with two goals, and Thiago and Iniesta, with one each, are the other former youth team players that have scored this season. Being attacking midfielders, we can expect both Iniesta and Thiago to considerably improve on those tallies as the season draws on.
