Goals and crowds at the Camp Nou


Frank Rijkaard’s side has started the season with three comfortable wins at the Camp Nou, and the games were watched by an extraordinary average of 75,580 spectators.

Barça had a tricky challenge ahead of them this week. No fewer than three top class teams were due at the Camp Nou in French champions Olympique Lyon, UEFA winners Sevilla and the always dangerous Zaragoza. They have responded in style, with 9 goals scored and just 2 conceded.

Messi tops scoring

QM3D0216.jpgThos eight days have been enough for Leo Messi to move to the top of the scoring charts with four consecutive goals in the stadium (the two against Sevilla followed by the first two against Zaragoza). This is proving to be the Argentinian’s best season yet, and he is tied at the top of the ‘pichichi’ chart alongside Kanouté (Sevilla), Rossi (Villarreal), Agüero (At. Madrid) and Sneijder (Real Madrid).

Average crowd of 75,580

The turnstiles have been clicking too. Both in Europe against Olympique (78,689 spectators), and in the League against Sevilla (77,399) and Zaragoza (70,676), the crowds have been spectacular this week.

Awkward times

web_01.jpgThe large crowds are especially good considering the fact that it is quite some achievement to get 70,000 people to come along to see a midweek game that did not kick off until 22.00. It is interesting to note that the last time Barça played a midweek league match at that time (v At. Madrid on December 21, 2006, 1-1), a considerably lower crowd of 53,685 people showed up.

Giovani, star of the Gamper
In the build up to the game with Zaragoza, Giovani dos Santos received the 'Jugador Estrella' award for his man of the match performance against Inter Milan at the Trofeo Joan Gamper. Damm marketing manager Jaume Alemany was the person with the honour of presenting the trophy to the young Mexican.
