They have conceded 8 goals in 24 matches
This Barcelona is different. Offensively, their statistics have improved, but there has not been a radical change. However, defensively, the team has been a wall in the league competition. The signings of Koundé and Christensen have provided rigor, great ball distribution, and a defensive efficiency that has not been seen in years. With them, Araújo has emerged as a leader in the heart of the defense, accumulating excellent performances in a brilliant season for the Uruguayan.
Against Valencia, the Culé team once again kept a clean sheet in the league, setting a historical record. With the 1-0 victory over Valencia, Barcelona became the first team in La Liga history to keep a clean sheet in the first 12 home games. The only goal they gave up at Camp Nou was to Espanyol. Joselu scored from the penalty spot. The other 7 -Real Madrid 3, Almería 1, Real Sociedad 1, Betis 1, Osasuna 1- were away, making it clear that visiting the Blaugrana’s home ground is synonymous with ‘leaving with an empty goal tally’.
