An unbeatable record! Josep Guardiola, who took charge of his last league match as first team manager on Saturday (2-2), has established an astonishing record of just 11 La Liga defeats, 116 wins and 47 draws in 152 matches played during his four-year period in charge.

412 goals scored, 109 conceded

Guardiola’s teams have collected a total of 373 league points over this period, an average of 93.25 per season – the biggest haul coming in 2009/10, when Barça finished with 99. They have scored 412 (that’s an average of 2.71 goals per match) and have only conceded 109 (0.71 goals per match).

Two defeats against Atletico and Osasuna

Atletico Madrid and Osasuna have proved to be the toughest opponents, both sides boasting two wins against Barça over the four years while Numancia, Espanyol, Mallorca, Hercules, Real Sociedad, Getafe and Real Madrid have managed one. Of the 11 defeats, two (against Mallorca and Osasuna) came at the end of the 2008/09 season when the league title was already mathematically decided and another in 2010/11 (against Real Sociedad) when the title was all but decided.

And finally, a few interesting stats. The most common score line under Guardiola has been 2-0 in Barça’s favour (17 times) followed closely by 1-0 (14 times), 2-1 (13 times), and 3-0 and 1-1 (12 times each).

The biggest wins were the 0-8 win away to Almeria and the 8-0 home win against Osasuna while the 0-2 defeat to Hercules in the Camp Nou was the only time Barça lost a league match by 2 goals or more.
