There is no team in La Liga that has hit the woodwork as much as FC Barcelona. According to OPTA stats, the blaugranes have hit the post or the crossbar on 13 occasions in 16 matches this season in all competitions.

The unluckiest player in the squad is none other than Leo Messi. The Barça number 10 has hit the woodwork an amazing ten times and against Betis he managed to do it not once, not twice but three times. With 16 goals already to his name in the campaign, if it were not for a coat of paint the Argentine genius would have a mind blowing total of 26. Paulinho and Luis Suárez are the other players to have enjoyed a slice of bad luck this season.
