Barça maintain winning habit

Marc Guillén

Barça’s latest victory away to Sporting (0-1) means that the team is continuing its recent habit of winning the opening match of the second half of the season.

Since Barça beat Athletic Bilbao in round 20 of the 2003/04 season, they have gone on to win the first match of the second half of the season in the six following seasons.

Winning ways

Over the last six seasons Barça have started the second half of the season with a win and on three occasions then went on to lift the league title. This year they top the table with a five-point lead over Real Madrid.

20-match unbeaten run
