Pep Guardiola’s long-standing unbeaten record in charge of Barcelona has been broken after the current Barca side struck late in the Copa del Rey to extend their streak to 29 games

 

The 1-1 draw against Valencia helped Barcelona take their tally of unbeaten games to 29 in all competitions, making this the longest unbeaten run in the history of the club. The Catalan club enjoyed a similar spell during the Pep Guardiola era when they went unbeaten in 28 games. Under Luis Enrique though there seems to be no stopping the European Champions as they further look to cement their status as the best club in the world.

The front three of Messi, Suarez and Neymar have been pivotal to the success of the Spanish giants and have amassed a total of 65 goals in Barcelona’s unbeaten run so far; which equates to 75% of the club’s goals. Their 130 day unbeaten run has seen them score 87 goals and concede a mere 15, with Suarez being the top scorer with 30 goals so far. Barca have also opened up a good 3 point lead at the top of the La Liga and are set to face Arsenal in the Champions League round of 16 next week.

A quick comparison between Barcelona’s two unbeaten runs shows that Enrique’s current side has triumphed over Guardiola’s side of 2010-11. During Guardiola’s unbeaten run Barca managed 85 goals and conceded 16, whereas under Enrique the side has scored two more and conceded one less in all competitions. Their longest winning streak of 10 games remains the same though.

The next fixture for the Club World Cup winners will be against Celta who could pose a threat to their impressive run, having already beaten them in the reverse fixture back in September.
