Barça set another record

Marc Guillén

The draw against Villarreal took Barca’s unbeaten league run this season to 16 games – beating the record set by Terry Venables’ team in the 83/84 season.

Although Barca were held to a draw on Saturday night, they stretched their unbeaten start to the league to 16 – a new club record.

Venables’ great start

Better record

Guardiola’s team have bettered Venables’ not just in extending the run, but also in the number of points taken, having won 12 and drawn four against the 10 wins, five draws and one defeat under the English manager.

22 from 24 points at the Camp Nou

The two points dropped against Villarreal were also the first Barca had let escape from the Camp Nou so far this season, having won all the previous seven.
Barça set another record
One point less than last season
FC Barcelona are pretty much repeating last season’s great start, having taken just one point less than at the same time last season when they ran out clear winners of La Liga.
