One more point than last season

Marc Guillén

Barça have put in better stats in terms of points, shots and winning the ball back compared with the same stage of last season, having taken a point more than they did when they recorded their record breaking number of points last year.

Once again, Guardiola’s team have beaten a seemingly unbeaten record. With the win over Villarreal, the team moved to 28 points, out of a possible 33 in the first 11 games of the campaign, one more than last season.

Great away form

At the same stage last year, the numbers were 10 scored and 3 conceded, with 3 wins and 3 draws in six away games.

It’s not been quite so good a record at the Nou Camp though, where the defeat to Hercules and the draw with Mallorca has meant 5 dropped points, compared to last year’s 100% record at the same stage.

More shots, fewer goals

The biggest difference is in the amount of possession won back, with an astonishing figure of 67 balls won back per game, compared to 56 last year.

Harder fixtures?
It’s always difficult to compare the difficulty of a fixture list from one season to another, but last year as this, Barça had already faced Valencia and Atletico Madrid, whilst this year has maybe been a little more difficult with the addition of the game against Villarreal.
