Barça’s hat trick of wins

Jordi Clos

Barça have won their last three league matches against Real Madrid for the first time since the 1997-98 season. Pep Guardiola featured on both occasions as player or manager.

The 1-0 win over Real Madrid means that Barça have won their last three league meetings. Last season Barça won 2-0 in the Camp Nou with goals from Eto’o and Messi and then 2-6 in the Bernabeu. And this Sunday they made it three out of three for the first time in years.

The precedent

The last time Barça won three “clasicos” in a row was in the 1996-7 and 1997-98 seasons under managers Sir Bobby Robson and Louis van Gaal. Robson’s team beat Real Madrid 1-0 (Ronaldo) in matchday 37 and then in the following season, under Van Gaal, 2-3 in the Bernabeu and 3-0 in the Camp Nou.

Featuring Guardiola

Thirty years and waiting

In contrast, Real Madrid have not won three leagues matches in a row against Barça since the 1977-78 and 1978-79 seasons.

The best start
Barça’s nine wins and three draws constitute the Club’s best start to a league season. It’s even better than last season, when Barça accumulated nine wins, two draws and one defeat at the same stage.
