Barca Set Another LaLiga Record
FC Barcelona Set Another LaLiga Record
Ernesto Valverde's FC Barcelona set a new LaLiga record in their 2-2 draw with Celta Vigo at the Estadio Municipal de Balaídos on Tuesday night.
Ousmane Dembele's first LaLiga goal for Catalan club gave the Spanish giants a 36th-minute lead, but Celta’s Jonny Otto levelled things just before half-time.
Spain international Paco Alcacer ensured that the visitors took the lead again in the second half but that was cancelled out by an 82nd-minute goal from former Liverpool attacker Iago Aspas.
The draw meant that the Spanish giants set a new record for the longest unbeaten run in the league from a start of a campaign, having played 33 matches, won 25 and drawn eight in the 2017/18 campaign.
Last weekend, the Blaugrana set another impressive record in their 2-1 victory over Valencia, taking their overall unbeaten in LaLiga streak to 39 games, surpassing Real Sociedad's previous best mark of 38 back in the 1979/80 season.
The Catalan giants will be in action again this weekend, when they face Sevilla in the Copa del Rey final.
