A fantastic Cup record

Jesús Carrillo

The Barça first team have really taken to the Cup under manager Pep Guardiola. They’ve won five ties and a final and are unbeaten in the competition.

The 5-0 defeat of Cultural Leonesa was Barça’s ninth Cup win under Pep Guardiola . Of the eleven games played, FC Barcelona has won nine and drawn two, with 24 goals in favour and 5 against. An almost perfect record.

The first title

In Valencia’s Mestalla stadium, Barça completed a great Cup run - in which they beat Benidorm, Atletico Madrid, Espanyol and Mallorca – with a fine performance against Athletic Club Bilbao. Nine matches, seven wins, two draws, 17 goals scored and 4 conceded.

More of the same

The Cup is a competition that doesn’t pardon mistakes and once again the Barça players stayed focussed and achieved a well-deserved 7-0 aggregate victory.
A fantastic Cup record
Undefeated over two legs
It’s no coincidence that Pep Guardiola has yet to suffer elimination in a two-leg tie. As manager of the reserve team, he took his players through the promotion playoffs against Castillo and Barbastro and then, with the first team, the Champions League knockout ties against Wisla Krakow, Olympique Lyon, Bayern Munich and Chelsea.

Of all these two-leg contests, Guardiola's team has only lost once, against Wisla in last season’s Champions League qualifying phase.
