Barça’s worst classification in La Liga in 18 years
The Barça (7th with 23 points and one game less) is stagnating in the League. The defeat against Betis combined with the rest of the results of the teams that travel at the top of the table leaves them 16 points behind the leader Real Madrid (1st with 37), and 7 from the area Champions League, that Real society (4th with 30) marks as a frontier after his tie in Anoeta against the whites.
Neither the defeat ‘in extremis’ of Atlético (5th with 29) in Wanda against Mallorca of Kubo serves as a consolation to the Barça team, because there are other candidates above capable of maintaining the type. Sevilla (2nd with 31) beat Villarreal. The Vallecano Ray (6th with 24), who plays today against Espanyol, can move away a little more. Athletic, Espanyol and Osasuna should thrash to advance to the culés
Counted on matchday 16 of the League, he has only added 23 points, although he has a postponed match against Sevilla. A worse record had only been signed 18 years ago in the disastrous 2002-03 campaign.
On matchday 16 of the League, and although there is a postponed game left, Barça’s numbers are negative. You have to go back to the 2002-2003 campaign to find such negative records. He reached 22 points after beating Recreativo de Huelva in January. The azulgrana team started with Louis van Gaal on the bench, in his second stage, but ended up dismissed and replaced by Radomir Antic, who at least it reached sixth position on the final matchday and qualified for the UEFA Cup, saving itself from staying outside Europe for the first time in its history.
