Barcelona has just lost to Real Madrid in the Super Classic, resulting in an unprecedented La Liga score after 12 years, although the opportunity to win is still wide.
Barcelona won the last point ever after 12 years
Barcelona has drawn 4 matches and lost 5 times since the beginning of the season leading to the closing of the round of 26 La Liga with a total of 55 points. That is quite unusual if we look back on their precedent because in the last 7 years the Catalan team has not won less than 60 points at the same time.
In fact, fans have to return to the 2007/08 season under coach Frank Rijkaard to witness worse points than Barcelona. At the time, they only had 54 points, even winning only 3 of the remaining 12 matches to finish in third place.
Beyond this precedent, the truth is that in the past 20 years, only 6 seasons have the Catalan team won fewer points at the same time in March and have never been able to conquer the championship. The first time was the 2006/07 season with 50 points, while the remaining 5 occurred in a row between 1999/00 and 2003/04 campaigns.
With Serra Ferrer, Rexach, Van Gaal and Antic on the training bench, Barcelona used to win only 46 points in the 26th round. Negative records were set in the 2002/03 season where they only had 33 points and ranked 9th in the rankings.
But the fact that Barcelona won a few points now does not mean that the championship opportunity is closed when only Real Madrid is 1 point lower.
In fact, this is the season where the team leading La Liga has the lowest score (56) in the round 26 since the 2006/07 season when Barcelona then led (with Sevilla) with 50 points. Beyond this precedent, there are only two more campaigns in the 21st century where the top team has fewer points at this time of year, including Valencia 2001/02 (44) and Real Madrid 2002/03 (54).
