Tenth win in a row away from home


The 0-3 victory away at Seville is Barça’s tenth win on the bounce away from home. That beats previous winning streaks such as eight in the 1927/28 season and seven in 2005/06.

Barça 2008/09 continues to hit new highs. On matchday eleven they set a new record for best ever start to the League, and now on matchday thirteen they’ve established a new record for wins away from home in competitive matches. Yesterday’s win at Seville was the tenth of six in the League, three in the Champions League and one in the Cup.

Starts at El Molinón

It continued at Montjuïc (1-2) and then in Donetsk (1-2) in the Champions League. The fourth win came at San Mamés after a break for international fixtures (0-1). Back in Europe, the team picked up all three points away at Basel (0-5).

The sixth win came in the Cup away at lowly Benidorm (0-1). Andalucía was the venue for the next two away wins, at Malaga (1-4) and Huelva (0-2). Last Wednesday in the Champions League Guardiola’s men set the record by beating Sporting Lisbon in Portugal.

All time record

The ten wins better the figures for the 1927/28 season, when with Romà Forns in the dugout Barça won eight competitive games away from home in three official competitions. The second best record was achieved in the wonderful 2005/06 season when Frank Rijkaard’s men won seven times in a row on the road.
Tenth win in a row away from home
Began with two defeats
Oddly enough, before the run of ten straight wins Barça lost its first two away fixtures, firstly in Cracow in the Champions League qualifying round and then in Soria in their first League game.
