Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang joins James Rodriguez in exclusive 4-man club with first Barcelona goal


Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang this afternoon etched his name into the history books of European football, after finding the net for Barcelona.

The Blaugrana are of course currently locked in action.

Amid the club's ongoing pursuit of a top-4 berth, Xavi Hernandez and co. have made the trip to the Mestalla, for a crunch La Liga showdown with Valencia.

And to say that things, at present, are going precisely according to plan for Barca, would be putting it lightly.

A dominant opening 45 minutes ultimately culminated in the afternoon's visitors heading in at the interval no fewer than three goals to the good.

The aforementioned Aubameyang has proven the star of the show thus far, notching his first pair of goals in Blaugrana colours, either side of Frenkie de Jong's finish just beyond the half-hour mark.

And, as alluded to above, in the process of bagging his maiden Barcelona brace, Aubameyang too managed to carve out a memorable piece of European history for himself.

As per statisticians Opta, the Gabonese today became just the 4th player to have found the net in all of Ligue 1, the Bundesliga, Premier League and, now, La Liga.

'Auba' follows the trio of Stevan Jovetic, Michy Batshuayi and James Rodriguez into the prestigious club.
