Best run of the season


FC Barcelona's victory over Deportivo de La Coruña on Wednesday evening was the team's seventh consecutive league win and marked their best run of the current campaign.

Pep Guardiola's team have entered the title run-in in great form and in the last month have been able to take control at the top of the table with a string of impressive wins. After drawing against Almería on March 6 the Blaugrana have gone on to beat Real Zaragoza (2-4), Osasuna (2-0), Mallorca (0-1), Athletic Club (4-1), Real Madrid (0-2) and Deportivo (3-0).

That set of results beat the string of six wins on the bounce that the team chalked up early on in the season. That run came to an end when Barça were held to a goalless draw by Valencia.

Clean sheets

Once again FC Barcelona kept a clean sheet as Víctor Valdés made is 18 matches this term without conceding. In the last five league games the Catalan keeper has just conceded just one and that came in the 4-1 win over Athletic Club.

The defensive record has meant that Valdés is now almost certain to win the coveted Zamora Trophy for being the best custodian in the top flight. With just six games remaining Valdés has conceded just 19 goals, while Real Madrid's Iker Casillas is second with 28.
Best run of the season
Closing in on last term
FC Barcelona have 83 points to their name in the league this season which is just four behind the total amount that the team garnered last term en route to a unique treble.
