Suarez beats Ronaldo's record

  • Suarez makes history on his 100 appearances mark
  • The Barcelona star has the highest combined total of goals and assists
  • Ronaldo however has more goals 
Luis Suarez has beaten Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo's record of the highest combined total of goals and assists first 100 appearances.

Suarez who came off the bench to make his 100th appearance for the Catalan giants against Alaves on Saturday has a higher combined total of goals and assists in his first 100 appearances for Barcelona than Cristiano Ronaldo managed in his first 100 games for Real Madrid.

Since making the switch from Anfield with Liverpool to Camp Nou for £75m in the summer of 2014, Suarez has netted 88 goals and claimed 43 assists for the Catalan giants in all competitions. He has only tasted defeat 12 times, with 80 of his 100 appearances ending in victories.

Suarez is overshadowed by superstar duo Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi in La Liga, but he scored more goals than either in all competitions last season (59) and the stats suggest he deserves to be considered on a similar level.

In a stats log compiled by Sky Sports, Messi's relatively modest record of 41 goals and 14 assists in his first 100 appearances can be explained by the fact that he was just an emerging teenager when he burst onto the scene at Barcelona, but the same can't be said of Ronaldo.

The Portuguese superstar was aged 24 and already established as one of the world's best players when he joined Real Madrid from Manchester United in a record-breaking £80m deal in 2009.

But while he scored more goals than Suarez in his first 100 appearances (95), his combined total of 124 goals and assists falls short of Suarez's 131, and he only won 76 of those games compares to Suarez's 80.
