The Catalan giants have not kept a league clean sheet since they beat Real Vallalodid in their second game of the season.
Barcelona conceded a goal for the 10th consecutive La Liga fixture after Real Betis’ Junior Firpo struck in the 20th minute on Sunday, their worst defensive run in 20 years.
You have to go back to 1998 when Louis van Gaal was in charge at Camp Nou for a longer run of games without a clean sheet. Back then, the Catalan giants conceded in 12 matches in a row, so if Barca concede in their next two league fixtures against Atletico Madrid and Villarreal, they will equal that record.
Although they have had a strong start to the current campaign and top the league table, the Catalan giants have not shut a team out since the second game of the season. They beat Alaves 3-0 on the opening day and saw off Real Valladolid 1-0 a week later, but have been forced to rely on their goal scoring ability since.
