Here are some of the stats from FC Barcelona’s win away to Mallorca (0-2):

- The two goals in Mallorca mean that Barça have now scored 600 goals in competitive matches since Guardiola took over as manager for the 2008/09 season. That’s an average of 2.57 per match or 150 per season.

- Lionel Messi has scored almost a third of those goals: 193 out of 600.

- Messi has scored 35 league goals so far this season, overtaking Ronaldo’s tally of 34 in the 1996/97 season and his own total of 34 in the 2009/10 season.

- Saturday night’s win in the Iberostar Stadium is Barça’s 8th away league win on the bounce.

- For the first time in this campaign, Barça have put together a run of four consecutive away victories: Sevilla, Racing, Atletico Madrid and Mallorca.

- Once again, Javier Mascherano put in a good performance in defence and topped the ranking of balls recovered with 12.

- Barça have had four players sent off in just eight games though only Gerard Piqué was shown a direct red card. Against Mallorca, Thiago was sent off for a second yellow card.

- Last night, Lionel Messi equalled former player and current PSV manager Phillip Cocu’s record of 205 matches. No other foreign player has represented Barça so many times. He is now set to hold that honour on his own if he plays in the next match against Athletic Club.

- Messi has scored in the last eight consecutive games, including twelve in the last five. This puts him well on the way to finishing as La Liga’s top scorer.

- Defender Martin Montoya went back to the stadium where he made his Barça debut on 26th February 2011.
