Better February than 2009

Jesús Carrillo

February 2010 was a better month than February 2009 for Guardiola’s team, who picked up 2 more points in the league, scored more and conceded fewer goals than a year ago.

More goals, more points

The team also scored one goal more than last February, nine, and conceded just three compared to six last year.

Carbon copy in Champions

The big difference has been the lack of Spanish Cup games: last February they beta Mallorca 2-0 in the first leg of the semi-final, whereas this year their challenge was cut short in January.
Better February than 2009
Same number of games
Although they have been involved in three more competitions than last season, Barca have played exactly the same number of games so far as they had at the same stage in 2009 – a total of 40 games. Last year they had played 24 league games, 7 in the Copa del Rey and 9(including the qualifying tie against Wisla) in the Champions League. This year they’ve played the same number of league games, 7 in the Champions League, 4 in the Cup, 3 Super Cup games and 2 more in the World Club Cup.
