Pedro, Messi and Sanchez = 101 goals
Henry, Messi and Eto = 100 goals
Benzema, Ronaldo and Higuain = 92 goals <<<<
Tevez, Ronaldo and Rooney = 79 goals
Gomez, Robben and Ribery = 76 goals
Drogba, Malouda and Anelka = 67 goals
Ljungeberg, Pires and Henry = 67 goals
Balotelli, Aguero and Dzeko = 66 goals
I suspect Gerd Muller, Uli Hoeneb and another Munich forward got around 80 goals in 1972-1973

Well Henry, Eto and Messi managed to score 100 a couple of seasons ago... but if Villa wasn't injured this season, along with Mess's goal tally, they probably could have beat Madrid.
See, I disagree with this because this year they have focused on Messi. For example, they have played the ball through to him and allowed him to play the more CF role. Whereas, if Villa would've been fit, he would've sat back a lot more and claimed more assists rather than goals.
Based on numbers alone, you're probably right. I can't remember a front 3 that scored more goals, and that's digging through a few seasons where I remember teams that just dominated. La Liga traditionally has more goals scored in a season than other leagues, and Real Madrid 11/12 holds the record at 121 this year. Unreal how we just witnessed history.
Although they might be the best front 3, my personal favorite will be:
Ronaldinho - Eto'o - Giuly
Ronaldinho in his prime was more entertaining than Ronaldo or Messi will ever be.
