Last defeat was in March

The defeat against Rubin Kazan on Tuesday evening was the first time that FC Barcelona had been beaten for exactly six months and 20 days, when they went down against Atlético de Madrid in Vicente Calderón.

Pep Guardiola's side had not been beaten for 34 consecutive matches as they were not on the wrong end of a result since March, when Los Colchoneros beat them in la Primera. During that time the Catalan club have lifted five major trophies.

Point of inflection

That reverse though became a point of inflection for the visitors and since then the team has gone on an incredible run of form. As well as clinching the league title, Barça also won the Copa del Rey, the UEFA Champions League, the Spanish Super Cup and the European Super Cup, as well as beating Real Madrid 2-6 in the Santiago Bernabéu.

34 games later

The last time that FC Barcelona were beaten in the Champions League was on December 9, 2008 when Shakhtar Donetsk secured a 2-3 triumph in Camp Nou. The Blaugrana had already qualified for the next stage when they took the field against the Ukrainian outfit.
