Sixteen win run breaks new records
The win over Atletico Madrid means Barça have become the first ever team in La Liga to chalk up 16 games on the trot, beating the previous record set by Real Madrid in the 1960-61 campaign.
It’ll be a tough record to beat, with the previous best having stood for more than half a
century, but Guardiola’s team will of course be looking to do just that next week when they
travel to Gijon to play Sporting. During the 16 game run the team have scored 60 goals and conceded
700 wins at the Nou Camp
The 3-0 win also marked another fine record – the 700th league
win at the Stadium since its inauguration in 1957. During those fifty odd years Barça have been at
the Nou Camp, they have played 940 league games and with Saturday’s win over Atletico Madrid,
they’ve won 700 (75%), drawn 154 (16%) and lost 86 (9%), with 2.329 goals scored and 738
The Club has only played La Liga games at its present ground and at the old Les Corts pitch,
where 320 matches were held (245 wins, 41 draws and 34 defeats).
