Josep Guardiola has become the first Barça manager to win three matches at the Santiago Bernabéu (2-6 in 2008/09, 0-2 in 2009/10 and 0-2 on Wednesday). We now look at this and other trivia from the game.
► Josep Guardiola has three wins and a draw to his name in four games at the Santiago
Bernabéu. In those games, he has scored 11 goals and conceded just 3.
► It is now 1086 dies, since May 7, 2008, that Barça have not lost at Madrid. And the
statistic will extend much further as they are not due to meet again until next season.
► The game was another Barcelona recital, who made three times more passes than Madrid
(794 to 267).
► Gerard Piqué recovered the most balls, 16. No other player managed more than 10.
► Messi, the Barça hero, shot the most times in the game for FCB (4). He was only
topped by Ronaldo (7), who had less success.
Víctor Valdés and Carles Puyol have not lost any of the last six clásicos they have played.
► The Barça keeper is actually the first to ever go seven clásicos in a row unbeaten.
► Sergi Roberto made his Champions League debut (he had previously only played 25
minutes in the cup against Ceuta). He played the last three minutes of the game at the Bernabéu,
coming on for Villa. He has yet to make a Liga appearance.
► This is the first time Madrid have lost a Champions League match at the Santiago
Bernabéu against a Spanish league team.
► Pinto, Sergio Ramos and Pepe will all miss the second leg, and Mourinho will have to
watch the game from the stands.
► No player will be one yellow away from suspension at the Camp Nou. If Barça qualify,
the only way they can have a player suspended at Wembley is through a sending off.
