More broadly, the army of coach Ronald Koeman experienced 18 games without losing. Of these, up to 15 times they won the full score.
Barca has not lost since the match against Cadiz in early December 2020. An excellent breakthrough series from the beginning of 2021 helped the Catalunya team rise to second place (currently, Real Madrid temporarily surpasses after an early 2-0 victory over Eibar).
Entering the 29th round of La Liga, Barca was even more motivated when the top team Atletico lost 0-1 at Sevilla.
That also means, Koeman teachers and students will be close to the top of the table, if they win Valladolid.
At that time, the distance between Barca and Atletico was only 1 point.
