We ‘ve compared the stats from Barça’s 2011/12 and 2012/13 seasons and it’s thrown up a number of interesting facts and figures
Once more, Barça have headed the league across a wide range of stats and this year they’ve even bettered some of their own records, such as the number of goals scored and set new league records for the number of goals scored away from home.
Barça head the stats for away goals scored in the 2012/13 season and have also conceded fewest headed goals, compared to the previous season’s figures when they scored more than any team from dead ball situations and headers and conceded fewer than anyone else:
|FROM DEAD BALL||10||5|
Last season’s side had more shots and made more crosses into the box, but scored fewer goals than this year’s more clinical team. The woodwork once again also played a big part:
|FROM DEAD BALL||2||3|
|SHOTS ON TARGET||287||250|
|SHOTS RECEIVED ON TARGET||106||120
|MINUTES OF POSESSION||1366||1382|
Barça were once again the team which received fewest cards and led the fair play table – the team’s first choice centre half pairing – Pique and Mascherano only committed 14 and 24 fouls all season long.
