New record of 10 away wins on the run

Jordi Clos

The win in Cornella meant that Barça have run up a record 10 consecutive away wins in La Liga between the end of last year and this season’s fantastic opening.

The win in Pamplona a fortnight ago marked the best ever start to a league campaign on the road and this Saturday’s stretched that run to eight wins, which added to the last two away wins of last season make it ten wins from the last 10 away games.

Two important wins

Great start

2010-11-07_PARTIDO_21.JPGThat form carried on onto this season with wins at Racing (0-3), Atletico Madrid (1-2), Bilbao (1-3), Zaragoza (0-2), Getafe (1-3), Almeria (0-8), Osasuna (0-3) and Espanyol (1-5) - eight wins from eight that have given them a full seven more points than their nearest rivals Real Madrid.

Plenty of goals

The team have scored an amazing 36 goals in those 10 games and conceded just 7, with Messi scoring 11, Pedro 6, Villa 4 and Bojan 4 times – making 25 of the team’s strikes. Valdes has remained unbeaten in four of the wins.

Biggest win
The biggest win in all of those games was against Almeria when the team equalled the competition’s biggest away score to win 0-8, matching Helenio Herrera’s team’s result against Las Palmas in 1959.
