Leaders in Europe

Sandra Sarmiento

Barça is the only team in the major European leagues to maintain a 100% record.

Guardiola’s Barça will enjoy their position as the only team to have won all their league encounters to date for at least another fortnight. If Barça win again on their next outing to Valencia’s Mestalla stadium, not only will they continue their run as the only team in Europe to enjoy a 100% record, they will also break a Club record.

Chelsea, one defeat

They have only lost one match – against Wigan Athletic (managed by young Spanish coach Roberto Martínez) 3-1 two weeks ago. Just like Barça, Chelsea won their first six matches.

Inter, in Serie A

Inter have gone top of Serie A in Italy after beating Udinese on Saturday thanks to an injury time goal from former Real Madrid star Wesley Sneijder. Inter have the same number of points as Sampdoria but stay ahead on goal difference. Inter, who feature former Barça players Eto'o and Motta, have won five, lost one (against Sampdoria) and drawn one, against Bari in the opening game of the season.

Bayer Leverkusen, two draws

ln the Bundesliga, Bayer Leverkusen (managed by Jupp Heynckes) remain unbeaten after 8 matches but unlike Barça have conceded a draw in two of those eight – to Mainz 5 on the opening day of the season and to Werder Bremen on 20th September.
