Top 20 Barcelona Goals of 2011
The Catalans have won five trophies in the calendar year, including the FIFA Club World Cup, La Liga, the Supercopa de España, the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Super Cup.
In fact, the only competition that Barca failed to win was the Copa del Rey, which the Catalans had to settle for runners-up to bitter rival Real Madrid.
Nonetheless, it was a near perfect 2011 for L'equip blaugrana.

Tremendous play from Fabregas and Adriano leads to a peach of a goal from Leo.

It's safe to say that the 2011 Club World Cup got a little Messi for Santos.
