Best goal scoring start to a season under Guardiola

Jesús Carrillo

Pep Guardiola’s Barça may not have equalled their start in the 2009-10 season, when they won their first three games, but they have scored more goals than ever before under Pep, with 15 scored and just two conceded.

Best goal scoring start to a season under Guardiola

The two big wins at the Camp Nou -against Villarreal and Osasuna- have helped the team to set a new scoring record over the first three games of a season and 15 in three matches will be a tough stat to ever match.

Six goals at Molinon

Best year till now

The second season was until now the best start in terms of goals scored, with a 3-0 win over Sporting and a 5-2 victory against Atletico Madrid at home and a 0-2 win in Getafe. That meant the leadership with nine points from nine and ten goals scored and just two conceded.

Poorest start...

Last season in contrast, saw five goals, which were all on the road –against Racing and Atletico and conceded three, one at the Vicente Calderon and two in the defeat to Hercules at the Camp Nou. After three games they had amassed six points from the nine in play.

Average of five goals a game

This season has seen an improvement in points on Guardiola’s first and third seasons and a record number of goals scored, after the five against Villarreal, two in Anoeta and eight against Osasuna on Saturday, whilst Valdes has been beaten just twice – both at Real Sociedad.
