Tenth league win in numbers

Tenth league win in numbers

Barça have ten wins and one draw so far in la Liga and are just three wins away from the best ever start to a league season

- Barça are still top of the league with three points between them and second placed Atlético Madrid. They have also extended the best ever start to a Liga season for FCB, which is now ten wins and a draw.

- Three more wins would set a new record for the start to a Liga campaign. Barça need to beat Zaragoza, Levante and Bilbao to beat Real Madrid’s start of twelve wins and two draws in the 1991/92 season.

- Barça have won every away game played so far this Liga season, at Osasuna, Getafe, Sevilla, Deportivo, Rayo Vallecano and Mallorca.

- Barça have scored 36 goals in the league, 26 of which have been away from home.

- Gerard Piqué, who briefly came on against Celtic, started his first game since the home clash with Spartak Moscow on September 19.

- Piqué played the full game and won 15 balls and only lost three, while 53 of his 56 passes were good.

- Tello has scored 10 times for Barça since making his first team debut. He has scored in the last three games that he has started (Spartak, Deportivo and Mallorca).

- Sergio Busquets will miss Saturday’s game with Zaragoza through suspension after getting his fifth yellow card of the season against Mallorca.

- Messi is still top goalscorer with 15, and is nine short of beating Müller’s record of 85 goals in a calendar year. Against Mallorca he beat Pelé’s tally of 75.

- Cesc and Valdés are still ever-presents in la Liga. They have started all eleven matches played to date.

- Barça have scored 51 official goals this season: 36 in La Liga, 8 in the Champions League, 3 in the Copa del Rey and 4 in the Spanish Supercup.
