Will there ever be a better attacking trident than Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar?
It’s hard to see another trio topping Barcelona‘s famous ‘MSN’, the South American stars breaking a ridiculous number of records during their three years together in Catalonia.
From the start of the 2014/15 season to the end of 2016/17, the three amigos scored a combined total of 363 goals. No, that’s not a typo.
Their numbers are absolutely obscene, but Messi, Suarez and Neymar are also not the only trio to find the back of the net over 100 times in the 21st century.
You can find out who the others are by checking out our list featuring the highest scoring trio in every single season since 1999/2000.

Will Messi, Suarez and Neymar’s tally of 131 goals in a season be topped by another trio? Well, we can’t see it happening for quite some time, that’s for sure.
Messi, Eto’o and Henry were the first three-man act to achieve a century of goals, before Ronaldo, Benzema and Higuain dwarfed their total by netting a combined total of 118.
Salzburg trio Soriano, Alan and Mane then got in on the act in 2013/14 with 108 of their own.
Then the MSN happened and, well, things just haven’t been the same since…
