14 wins and three draws. Barça are on the longest unbeaten run in Europe’s top leagues, and extended that streak with a 4-1 defeat of Huesca on Monday night that has really put the pressure on the league leaders.

No team in La Liga, the Premier League, the Bundesliga, Serie A or Ligue 1 can match that form. Inter Milan and Lille come closest with eleven games without defeat.
But more importantly, in that time Barça have cut the ten-point gap on leaders Atlético Madrid down to just four. It’s very much game back on in La Liga!
Messi has scored 20+ goals for the 13th season in a row, and 17 of these have come as part of the unbeaten streak. With a total of 21 he tops the Liga goalscoring charts, but we should also note that De Jong, Jordi Alba, Griezmann and Trincão have all contributed three. For Trincão it was his first ever goal for the club, and this period has also seen Mingueza, Ilaix Moriba, Riqui Puig and Araujo get their first goals!
In 2021 the form has been better than ever, with Barça winning ten of their 11 games, only dropping points against Cádiz at the Camp Nou. It’s a streak that brings the team very close to the run of 23 games without defeat under Ernesto Valverde in 2018/19.
