Barcelona might not have the best of times on the field off late, but a report in Mundo Deportivo claims that the Catalan club's stars Lionel Messi and Antoine Griezmann are the best attacking duo in LaLiga.

The pair have contributed 28 goals between them which includes 15 assists with the stars closely followed by Atletico Madrid's pair of Luis Suarez and Marcos Llorente who have registered 27 goals and 10 assists. Real Sociedad’s Mikel Oyarzabal and Alexander Isak round up the top three with 22 goals and eight assists, which is not far from the first two duos on the list.

Barcelona have currently scored 32 goals in the 12 league games they have played in 2021 of which they have won 11 games and drawn one. Of these 32 goals, Messi and Griezmann have contributed 24 of those, despite the Frenchman coming for criticism from fans and pundits over whether he deserves a place in the first XI.

When it comes to the top goalscorer of the season, Messi leads the race with 23 goals to his name in 26 appearances with his good friend and former team-mate, Luis Suarez placed second with 19 goals.

Ronald Koeman's men are currently placed second in LaLiga table with 62 points from 28 games, four behind table toppers, Atletico Madrid.
