Spanish La Liga can be regarded as a way of introducing big names that have successfully dominated Barcelona in the last decade. If they are totaled, they have won the title seven times from the last ten league titles and are equipped with five Copa Del Rey titles.
Enter in the 2019-2020 season now, Barcelona is again favored as champions. In other words, Lionel Messi and his friends will definitely defend the title from the target of many clubs including Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid as the most frequent annoying rivals.
Barcelona did not show their mentality at the start of this season, it looks how they were a little difficult in the first few weeks, including losing 1-0 to Athletic Bilbao. However, the defeat did not necessarily bury the mentality of Barcelona to get up and look successful back on the winning track.
The season is still long and there are still many points that can be achieved by Barcelona. Interestingly here, Barcelona of course not only eyeing the title alone, but a record that might be solved this season can be a passion for Messi and friends to make it happen.
Following below are Barcelona’s opportunities to break new records in La Liga this season, according to Fox Sports Asia.
1. Most goals in the history of the Spanish La Liga
Speaking Barcelona, then they look like they never run out of stock of quality forward players. Call it the figures of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, Neymar, Thierry Henry, Samuel Eto’o, David Villa and many more. On that basis, why Barcelona deserve to be stamped as one of the most fertile Spanish teams in matters of scoring.
Until now, Barcelona’s total goal record has reached 6,089 goals in La Liga history. If dissected deeper, then Barcelona is only 18 goals behind the total number of Real Madrid. Statistics speak that Barcelona has the chance to shift that record and become the team with the highest number of goals in league history at the end of the season.
2. Highest points in one season
Until now, Real Madrid and Barcelona are the team that holds the most points in a season. Real Madrid successfully made history in the 2011-2012 season, where Jose Mourinho was his coach who successfully delivered EL Real to 100 points.
Not wanting to lose prestige, Barcelona managed to score the same thing the following season under the tutelage of Tito Vilanova. When all that has passed, it is now recorded that the La Liga champions are only able to reach 90 points or more or less in each season.
In other words, the opportunity for Barcelona to record again is still very wide open. Despite losing a few games at the start of the season, the opportunity is still very possible if you see the current Barcelona squad.
Losing Barcelona points can be seen due to the absence of Lionel Messi, despite the success of presenting Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid, but this new player still needs adaptation and Messi’s presence in the game may help the adaptation process faster.
