The first 15 of 30 of the Barça since 2002 does not admit more setbacks

The FC Barcelona is obliged to win tonight (9pm) at the Camp Nou at Deportivo Alavés after two consecutive defeats against him Real Madrid (1-2) and the Vallecano Ray (1-0) that have left the team in ninth place with only 15 points out of 30 possible. Nine away from the leadership of the Real society although with a pending party for the culés in the fief of the Seville, the very poor percentage of 50% of points won reflects the bad start of the season for the Catalans. You have to go back to the 2002-03 season to find an equal record at this point.

The last stumble, before the Lightning

With Louis van Gaal, which ended up being dismissed at the end of January, on the 19th matchday, the team occupied the tenth place with four victories, three draws and three defeats, exactly the same balance as now, with 17 goals in favor and 13 against for the 15 -11 today. Two seasons before (2000-01), with Llorenç Serra Ferrer on the bench, the Barça had only 16 points, the same as at the start of 2003-04, when Frank Rijkaard was the head of the locker room in the initial exercise of the first mandate of Joan Laporta as president. The spectacular comeback of the second round, coinciding with the arrival of Edgar davids provided by the Juventus, catapulted the group to fight for the title, finally for the Valencia, finishing in second place just five points behind the champion.

Last season, already with Ronald Koeman up front, only two more points had been added with six more goals scored and the same conceded.

14 goals at home and one away

The lack of success against the rival frame is weighing down the Barça, which also presents the worst production figures (15) since The league 2003-04 (14). The difference between goals at home (14) and away (1) is alarming in a team that has only scored two goals in the last three games: Piqué did it against him Dynamo Kiev (1-0) and Kun Aguero in front of Real Madrid (1-2) while Memphis Depay, who has not scored since August 29, missed a penalty in Vallecas who finished digging the grave of his compatriot Koeman.
