American Roller Coasters of the Catalan Club: 10 Facts About the Barcelona Season 2023/2024

  1. Robert Lewandowski is the top scorer of Barça and the third assistant in La Liga (17+8). He is the only representative of the club in the top 25 scorers of the championship, and only Rafinha (9) has provided more goals for the Catalans.

  2. If the Catalans win all their remaining league matches, they will gather 85 points. Since the 2018/19 season, Barca has reached this mark only twice.

  3. João Félix has scored 7 goals in this championship. 2 of them went into the net of Atlético, to whom the Portuguese belongs.

  4. The youngest footballer in history with 10+ goals and assists in a season is setting Catalonia on fire. This is the main achievement of 16-year-old Lamina Yamal, who has already broken numerous youth records and increased in value by more than 65 times since the summer.

  5. Xavi has as many dismissals this season as Marcos Alonso has appearances in the starting lineup in La Liga (3). The Spanish defender has only played 251 minutes on the field and has not contributed with any goals or assists.

  6. Barca has fallen short of more than 4 goals in the championship. The Catalans rank second in xG in the league (74.7), behind Real (78) and Girona (75) in goals.

  7. João Cancelo has been awarded 4 MOTM statues. None of his partners have earned more, and with an average rating of 7.14, the Portuguese ranks third in the team. By the way, the lowest rating belongs to Vitor Roque (6.17).

  8. After Xavi announced his departure, Barca did not lose in 14 matches. In April, the Spaniard said he would stay, but the coach faces dismissal if he doesn't finish the championship with silver.

  9. Barcelona kept 15 clean sheets in 35 rounds of the championship. Marc-André ter Stegen earned 13 of them - the German was sidelined due to injury but kept a clean sheet in exactly half of the matches he was available for.

  10. Gavi and Pedri have played only 33 matches together in La Liga, while Gavi alone has played 70 rounds in the past two seasons.
