From the 23rd minute against Valencia, when Pablo scored, Barça have not conceded a single goal, which all goes to show how defensively solid the side is.
It is almost a month since the FC Barcelona first team last let in a goal. On September 21, Barça
drew 2-2 at Mestalla and Víctor Valdés has not picked a single ball out of the net since.
Bilbao, Bate, Sporting and Racing
Barça have kept four consecutive clean sheets in Europe and Spain, which
is the ideal reflection of the way that it is not just stunning attacking football, but also tight
defending that have made the team so effective under Pep Guardiola.
7 straight clean sheets at Camp Nou
The first team has yet to concede a goal at home in the league this season. Added to the last
three games of the previous season at home to Deportivo, Espanyol and Osasuna, that makes for an
impressive run of seven league matches in which Barcelonan have not leaked a single goal.
More defence and more attack
Great defensive teams are usually less adept when it comes to scoring goals, but that is far
from the case where Guardiola and Barcelona are concerned. In league games at the Camp Nou this
season, Barça have scored an amazing 21 goals, an average of 5.25 a game, statistical evidence that
the team is working to perfection in every department.
