The 1-0 defeat at home to Celta was the first time in 56 league games that the Camp Nou crowd didn’t have a single goal to celebrate. Here’s a selection of other stats from Saturday’s game.
- The last time Barça failed to score at the Camp Nou was on October 22, 2011, in a 0-0 draw with Sevilla.
- The absence of any goals also brings an end to Neymar’s scoring run, which had reached six games. Against Celta he hit the woodwork twice.
- Javier Mascherano and Dani Alves won the most balls last night, 17 and 13 respectively.
- The team against Celta featured three changes from last week’s loss at the Bernabéu. Jordi Alba, Rafinha and Rakitic stepped in for Piqué, Xavi and the injured Iniesta.
- There were seven changes with respect to the home game with Celta last season, with only Mascherano, Alba, Messi and Neymar starting both matches.
- Rafinha hadn’t started a game since August 31, the 1-0 win at Villarreal.
- Claudio Bravo conceded his first goal at the Camp Nou. Until now, the only team to have scored against him was Real Madrid, who got three at the Santiago Bernabéu.
- Luis Suárez played the full 90 minutes for the first time since joining FC Barcelona.
- Pedro was booked for the third time this season, and the second time in the league.
