Barça are unstoppable in the cup this season. The 3-2 win at the Vicente Calderón maintains their 100% win record in the tournament. Here’s our statistical look back at a marvellous night in Madrid.

  • In these games, FCB have scored 25 goals and conceded a mere three.
  • The two at the Calderón were the first against Marc-André ter Stegen in the cup. Masip was in goal the day of the 8-1 win over Huesca.
  • Miranda’s was Barça’s second own goal of the season. Sidnei also scored for the wrong team in the 4-0 win at Deportivo.
  • FC Barcelona have won all five games where Alves, Piqué, Mascherano and Alba have started in defence. The other were the 5-1 defeat of Espanyol, 3-1 against Atlético in the league, 4-0 at Deportivo and both legs against Atlético in the cup.
  • Javier Mascherano was one of three Barça players to get booked at the Calderón and is the only one who is now one yellow away from suspension.
  • Jérémy Mathieu returned from injury last night, thus playing for the first time since the 4-0 win at Elche in the cup, when he scored a great free-kick.
  • FC Barcelona had not won 3-2 since the trip to Villarreal last season, when they came back from 2-0 down to take the three points.
  • Jordi Alba and Sergio Busquets won the most balls at the Calderón, 12 and 10 respectively.
  • Alba also made the most passes (92), including his assist for Neymar to get the third FCB goal of the night.
