Raphinha doing it on the road
None of the Brazilian's first five goals for FC Barcelona came at Spotify Camp Nou, something that hasn't happened in two decades
Raphinha scored his fifth goal for Barça against Betis on Wednesday, and the curious thing about all five is that not one of them was netted at Spotify Camp Nou. No Barça player has done the same thing since records of this statistic started in 2003/04.
But Aubameyang was a curiously similar case. Four of his first five goals came away from home, while going further back Giovani dos Santos and Gianluca Zambrotta had all scored three times on the road before finally doing it in front of their home fans.
Something else unusual about Raphinha's five goals away is that they have always served to put his team ahead. The three against Sevilla (Liga) Betis (Liga) and Ceuta (Copa) all broke the 0-0 deadlock, while the ones at Osasuna (Liga) and Intercity (Copa) put Barça in front in a game that was tied until then.
The Spotify Camp Nou is still waiting to celebrate a goal from this season's new star in the stadium, and surely there can't be long now until the day comes!
