Ahem, uh, this is happening, in case you forgot

With the Champions League knockout stages starting up again soon, let's take a peek at the form team on the planet these days:

Barcelona: 22 played, 19 won, 2 drawn, 1 lost, 68 for, 16 against, 52 GD

For some perspective, the 52 goal differential is 5 more goals than the entire season's output for the next highest-scoring side in La Liga. Eto'o, Messi and Henry have combined for 47 goals, more than the totals for any team in the Spanish first division except for Atletíco, whose 47 can only match the numbers for Barcelona's starry trio.

It's at the point where if I see they've scored three in a match it seems like Barca's had an off night.
