Rock solid defence: 7 goals conceded in 16 games

In Europe's main leagues, only Bayern Munich has a better defensive record than FC Barcelona

One of the best features of Barça in the few months under Luis Enrique has been in defence. After 16 league games, the first team has only conceded seven goals, a record only surpassed by Bayern Munich, who have only let in four goals in 17 games in the Bundesliga.

It’s not the first time Barça’s excellent defence has been a talking point this season. Claudio Bravo, who has played in goal in every league game so far, set a new record by going for 754 minutes before being beaten for the first time.

Here are the top defensive records around Europe as we head into the New Year:
