Best ever away win start equalled

Jordi Clos

The 8-0 win at Almeria has equalled the greatest ever league away win in Barça history. FCB also won 8-0 away under Helenio Herrera (1959).

That record win was in Las Palmas in the 1959/60 season. Goals from Messi (3), Bojan (2), Iniesta, Pedro and Acasiete (own goal) mean Pep Guardiola’s side has equalled a record that never looked likely to be matched ever.

51 years later

The date was October 25, 1959. In the seventh game of the season, Barça beat Las Palmas thanks to goals from Luis Suárez (3), Evaristo (2), Eulogio Martínez, Gensana and Villaverde. The side was managed by Helenio Herrera and went on to win their second consecutive league title.

Eight goals in UEFA 2003

The win also means Barça have won all of their first six away matches for the first time ever. The only club to have done the feat before was Real Madrid (1991/92).
