FC Barcelona figures outshine the rest of Europe

FC Barcelona figures outshine the rest of Europe

Tito Vilanova’s side have chalked up more points and goals than the leaders of any other top European leagues

18 victories, 1 draw and no defeats, with 64 goals scored and only 20 conceded: spectacular numbers from Barça’s first half of the league season, with 96.5% of games won and an average of 3,37 goals a game.

The figures set a new record in La Liga and are far ahead of those of the leading teams in Europe’s other top leagues –in England, France, and Germany- in the first half of the season.

For example, Paris Saint-Germain are top of the French league and have 17 points less than Barça, whilst Manchester United, who lead the Premier League have a goal difference of +20, compared to Barça’s +44. None of the other teams are unbeaten either.
