With the departure of Luis Suarez from Barcelona and joining Atletico Madrid, the second leg of the attacking triangle “MCN”, which is the most skilled triangle in the history of football, has fallen, rivaled only by the Real Madrid triangle nicknamed “BBC”.
The departure of Suarez came days after the collapse of another trio with the return of Gareth Bale to his former team, Tottenham, where the second leg was also in the dangerous offensive triangle nicknamed “BBC”, which was the most prominent feature of this era.
Where, with the Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema who preceded him, Bale represented an offensive triangle that brought the royal to many European, international and local titles, as they scored 442 goals together.
Suárez formed, with Neymar and Lionel Messi, during their time together, a great striking force that brought Barcelona many titles, most notably the historic triple victory under Luis Enrique in 2015.
Before Neymar joined Paris Saint-Germain in 2017, the Catalan trio played 450 matches together over the course of 3 seasons, winning two Spanish League titles, 3 Copa del Rey and the Champions League titles.
The end of the GREATEST FORWARD TRIO in Football History.

Although the “BBC” excelled in terms of scoring goals over Barcelona’s “MCN” trio, as the latter scored 364 goals; The skillful performance and excellence in goal-making for each other distinguished Messi, Suarez and Neymar, as they only have 173 passes between them, which reflects the extent of the great understanding between them, so that sometimes they pass the ball from one touch automatically because they memorize their movements well.
Neymar revealed in 2018 the secret behind this trio by saying that “the friendship between us was a very beautiful thing because of the happiness that we lived together daily. The relationship between us was so close that we could laugh at each other when we found nothing to do.”
