The win at Sánchez Pizjuán, which once again involved coming back from behind, equalled the club record for a winning start to La Liga and also saw Cesc back on goalscoring form

Tito Vilanova has managed the side to six consecutive wins at the start of a league campaign, matching the achievement of Bellamy, Cruyff, Van Gaal and Guardiola. If he wins the clásico, he’ll set a new record of seven.

– With late two goals at the Sánchez Pizjuán, nine of Barça’s last 17 goals have been scored in the last quarter of an hour.

Busquets played his 200th game last night in Sevilla, and 75% of those have been wins.

Cesc Fàbregas scored his first goal in almost eight months, and added a second later in the game.

– Barça have not lost in six trips to the Sánchez Pizjuán, with 4 wins and 2 draws.

– The comeback against Sevilla was the fourth time this season that Barça have come from behind to win, and this was the first time they have cancelled out a two-goal deficit.

– The last time Barça came back from two down was also on September 29, way back in 1996, when they were losing by two away to Zaragoza and managed to end up winning 5-3.

– The win in Sevilla was the first for Barça when they had been losing in the 88th minute.

– Three of the four starting defenders, Song, Mascherano and Alves, won the most balls, getting 13 each.

– Míchel has now played Barça six times as a manager and lost every time.
