With their somewhat laboured 2-1 home win over a Unai Emery’s gallant and dangerous Sevilla, the Barcelona record team have now extended their unbeaten run to 35 matches. Although Sevilla put up a brave show (making life more difficult for Barcelona than even Atletico or Real Madrid have this season) they were up against Messi’s free kick wondergoal and the home advantage of Barcelona, whose winner came from a short-range Pique stab home.
There was something inevitable about this. Barcelona just tend to do record things. Record goals scored, record games won. Poor Real Madrid are running out of records to cling on to as now, Barcelona have the longest ever unbeaten run in Spanish history. The azulgrana’s 2-1 defeat of Sevilla at the Camp Nou was their 35th game without defeat, a record previously held by Leo Beenhakker’s Real Madrid in the 80’s (Hugo Sanchez and all).
All in all the greatest – Barcelona record team
The Barcelona record seems inevitable indeed, just as obvious as it now seems that Messi is the world’s greatest ever footballer (it makes no sense to maintain anything different) . .and how churlish does it now appear to maintain that Pep Guardiola”s team were the greatest ever Barcelona, when Luis Enrique’s Barcelona is now probably proving itself to be the best club football team ever, full stop ?
Of course when talking of a Barcelona record it’s all done in style – not only is their unbeaten run now longer than anyone else’s, they have also won more of those games, and scored more goals. With only ten matches left in La Liga, and with Real Madrid apparently conceding, Barcelona appear to be unstoppable. We can only recommend that you enjoy the spectacle that is Barcelona – make sure you get to teh Camp Nou to take part as a spectator, in this amazing record spree.
