24 wins, 2 draws and 2 defeats, meaning 74 points from 28 games. That’s the second best record Barça have had at this stage of a season in the last decade. And it hasn’t been any old decade, but has been one in which FCB have won five of the last nine championships.
75 points in 2010/11
In the last ten years, Barça have averaged 63.6 points at this stage. For example, in 2004/05 they had 64 and the year after had 65. In both cases, they ended up winning the title. 12 months ago, FCB had 66.
Barça’s best record for the first 28 matches was the 75 they got in 2010/11. That was one more than they have this time, and the team was already assured top sport after 36 matches and finished the campaign with a massive haul of 96 points.
Final record, 99 points
Barça’s biggest ever tally at the end of the season was the 99 points accumulated in 2010. Even so, that season they had three points less (71) than the team does now. That was a season that went down to the very last day, and the Catalans ended it with 28 of the last 30 points at stake to finish just one short of a three-figure haul.
With 74 points from 28 matches, the current Barça has the chance to break the all-time club record. To do that, they’ll need at least 25 of the remaining 30 points in play.
