Individual records - collective benefit


Iniesta, Eto'o, Valdés...Just some of the names from a match that once again ended with a fine display of football, goals, a clean sheet and the league title a little bit nearer. And some new individual and team records.

The brilliant victory against Sevilla (4-0) kept Barça six points ahead of Real Madrid in second place. It also witnessed the first of a number of Club records that look likely to be broken – in this case the greatest number of wins in a league season.

Eto'o, more goals than ever 

QM3D0058.jpgThe Cameroon striker scored his 27th league goal of the season on Wednesday evening and beat his own Club record of 26 goals in the 2005-06 season. He remains in an exciting race with David Villa (25 goals), whose two goals against Betis have kept him in touch. Eto’o has also regained top place in the Golden Boot ranking ahead of Marc Janko. Consult Eto’o’s complete statistics.

Seven clean sheets

QM3D7310.jpgVíctor Valdés has now kept a clean sheet in the last seven consecutive matches. A total of 632 minutes without conceding a goal, which brings him close to Miguel Reina’s record of 824 minutes. And of course this also brings him to within touching distance of the Zamora Trophy for the La Liga goalkeeper who concedes the fewest goals in a season. Consult Valdés’ complete statistics.

Iniesta, assists and goals

QM3D8988.jpgAndrés Iniesta scored an early goal for the second match in a row in the Camp Nou, giving him a total of four goals this season. However, his main contribution against Sevilla was to provide the assist for the other three goals. Consult Iniesta’s complete statistics.

92 goals... and 32 against the woodwork

The current Barça team has scored 92 goals so far, bringing them closer and closer to the 96 goals in the 1958-59 season scored by the Barça team managed by Helenio Herrera and the 102 goals scored under Bobby Robson in the 1996-97 season. However, there could have been even more goals this season given that Barça has hit the woodwork on no fewer than 32 occasions. Márquez added to the list against Sevilla when his powerful long-range shot skimmed the crossbar.
Individual records - collective benefit
Jiménez believes treble is possible
Sevilla boss Manolo Jiménez last night joined the chorus of managers who have left the Camp Nou full of praise for the team. After admitting that Barça had been “infinitely superior” he went on to back Barça’s chances of doing the treble “due to their quality and attacking potential”.
