Following their 1-2 defeat in the Cup to Seville, Barca have bounced back, winning the next four games, scoring 13 goals and not conceding any at all.

Guardiola’s all conquering team may have crashed out of the Cup, but following their first leg defeat at home to Seville, they showed the character of Champions to win the next four games, banging in the goals and not conceding a single one themselves.

Four wins

Finally, last weekend they rounded off their unbeaten first half of the league campaign with a 0-3 win in Valladolid.

Messi leads the scorers

Lionel Messi has scored 6 of the 13 goals during the run, including a hat trick in Tenerife. He also scored two in the win over Seville in Barcelona and one more last weekend. Puyol, Pedro, and Alves have been the other scorers, along with two own goals.

Valdes unbeaten

Back in form
The stats confirm the players sensations over the last few games, with Xavi Hernandez summing up the squad’s impressions: “we’ve re-found the form we all enjoy, dominating games and playing well”.

Les xifres es corroboren amb les sensacions dels protagonistes. Els jugadors reconeixen que en els últims partits l’equip s’ha retrobat amb el millor joc blaugrana. “Hem trobat un altre cop la línia que ens agrada, dominant i amb bon joc”, explica Xavi dels últims quatre partits del Barça.
