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:
|BENFICA & PORTO||PORTUGUESE||7||14||0.50|
|CHELSEA & SOUTHAMPTON||ENGLISH||13||17||0.76|
