Aubameyang scored Barca's third goal of the first half on Sunday, with Ferran Torres netting twice during the opening 45 at Camp Nou.

What did Aubameyang accomplish?

With his goal, the ex-Arsenal star, who joined Barca in January, now has five goals in his first six league games for the club.

Aubameyang has gotten off to a spectacular start in a Barca shirt, scoring three goals against Valencia and once against Athletic Club in addition to netting in the club's Europa League triumph over Napoli.

His goal on Sunday, though, gives him five league goals in his first six appearances, a feat only accomplished by a few club legends.

That mark makes him only the eighth player to hit that tally in six games at Barca, joining Ibrahimovic, Ronaldo, Cruyff, Romario, Ronald Koeman, Hans Krankl and Sandor Kocsis.
