More points than this time last year

Roger Bogunyà

The win over Malaga takes Barca to 61 points – one more than last year at the same stage when they went on to win the title.

A year ago, the 24th game was against Espanyol and Barca’s city neighbours caused a shock by winning 1-2 at the Nou Camp to leave their hosts on 60 points. Guardiola warned at the start of this season that we shouldn’t expect his team to repeat last year’s numbers, but after last night’s win, they have indeed gone one better in the league.

New record?

Last year’s title winning haul of 87 points was a record, but with 42 points still to play for, the team are just 26 off beating that mark and need to take “just” 62% of the points on offer to set a new record.

Just 11 points dropped

The team have let just 11 points escape them, losing away to Athletic Madrid and being held to a draw by Valencia, Osasuna, Athletic Club de Bilbao and Vilarreal).

Gap could grow
The team lost their first game of the last season against Espanyol in the 24th week of the campaign and also lost their next game against Atletico Madrid (4-3), which means that a win next week against Almeria would mean an even bigger improvement on last year’s stats.
