Luis Suarez slotted home his 100th goal for Barcelona against Athletic Bilbao as the two sides met in the Copa del Rey on Wednesday night.
Suarez, who joined the club from Liverpool in 2014, has eclipsed even Lionel Messi's record, who took 188 games to score 100 goals, while the Uruguayan achieved the feat in just 120.

He has formed part of the club's incredible attacking trio - Messi, Suarez and Neymar, or MSN - since joining the club, who have hit a combined 300 in that time also.
Athletic, who held a narrow advantage after a 2-1 win in the first leg of the tie, came undone under the sheer firepower of Barcelona at the Camp Nou, with Suarez opening the scoring in style.
A lofted ball to the back post found the striker in too much space, and he provided an acrobatic finish to put the ball in the back of the net, with a slight deflection.

Messi found the back of the net as well with a decisive goal to make the score 3-1 on the night, and give the Catalan side the aggregate win, with a stunning free kick.
