Guardiola’s spectacular stats

Roger Bogunyà

In his two seasons in charge at the club, Pep Guardiola has run up some spectacular stats – not just for the titles he’s won, but also for the number of wins and the goals his teams have scored.

The win against Valladolid last Sunday which confirmed the league title , was Guardiola’s 87th victory in charge out of a total of just 121 games, which represents a 72% winning record, with 19% of the games ending in a draw and just 9% lost.

Win stats have improved

296 goals in two seasons

Mind you, the defence has done its part too, with just 94 goals conceded – less than one a game – that leaves them with a total goal difference of 202 goals over the period since Guardiola took over.

Goals galore for Messi

He’s scored 85 in the last two seasons – 38 last year and 47 this season – and is already the club’s seventh leading league scorer of all time.
