Another Clásico with a big difference!

Nine points separate Barça and Real Madrid ... one of the biggest leads ever going into the famous fixture

FC Barcelona are going into the second La Liga Clásico with a massive nine points between them and Real Madrid. In fact, it’s the fourth biggest Barça lead EVER going into a trip to the Bernabéu:

2012/13           16 points
1990/91           13 points
2017/18           11 points
2018/19           9 points

Amazingly, two of the four highest margins have come in the last two seasons – although it would also be fair to note that last season Real Madrid had played one game less.

And although the biggest difference of all was recorded in 2012/13, the 13-point lead in 1990/91 is especially impressive considering it came in the era before three points for a win.

Not the biggest of the season

Although nine points separate the clubs now, from weeks 18 to 21, Barça actually had a ten-point lead on their historic rivals. But a new season high of 12 points could be established with a repeat of Wednesday’s Copa del Rey semi-final victory!
