Teams, like players, have rivals who are especially good at it. The Catalan team has been for years without knowing the defeat against several LaLiga clubs. Let’s see who are the teams that are best at Barça, according to the data offered by MisterChip.
FC Barcelona and Espanyol faced each other at the Camp Nou in a new derby and we can say that the result was practically the same as always. Quique Setién’s team won 1-0, a result more than enough to continue their streak of matches without losing to the parakeets.
And it is that Espanyol has become the favorite victim of the azulgranas in LaLiga, to see the last defeat of FC Barcelona against their neighbors in Barcelona we have to go back to February 21, 2009 when the parakeets managed to storm the Camp Nou (1-2). Since then Barça have won 17 games and tied five.
Barcelona have also managed to link 22 games without losing to Villarreal. The last duel between these two teams was last weekend with a Barça victory and the last victory for the yellow submarine was on March 9, 2008, 1-2 at El Madrigal.
In addition to Espanyol and Villarreal, there are four other teams against which Barcelona were undefeated for quite some time, as evidenced by the data offered by MisterChip on their Twitter account.
More consecutive La Liga matches for Barcelona WITHOUT LOSING against the same rival:
22 ESPANYOL (2009-?)
22 Villarreal (2008-?)
21 Zaragoza (1976-1986)
20 Levante (1965-2018)
20 Atlético (2010-?)
19 Sporting (1995-?)
? Streaks still in force.

FC Barcelona’s third longest streak was against Real Zaragoza, who between the years 1976 and 1986 linked 21 games without losing. Next comes Levante, which between 1965 and 2018 was not able to beat the Catalans who linked 20 games without losing. The streak ended on May 13, 2018 when the Levante win over 5-4 in an absolutely crazy match.
The next streak is the one he maintains against Atlético Madrid with 20 games without losing in LaLiga, the last defeat was in 2010. The last match between these two teams ended in a draw (2-2). And finally there is Sporting de Gijón. The Asturians have not won a game against Barcelona since matchday 1 of the 1994/1995 season and they have been 19 consecutive games without knowing the victory.
Of the six streaks, four are still in effect. Next season, Barcelona will have the opportunity to extend their streak against Villarreal and Atlético de Madrid and set a new record.
