Are Barcelona the Spanish Liverpool? Given the presence of ex-Reds Suarez and Mascherano and the rumours of the Blaugrana moving for Philippe Coutinho, one would say yes. And here is another stat which makes Luis Enrique’s side look like the Spanish Liverpool- all of Barca’s four league defeats have come against teams OUTSIDE the top 9.
The Blaugrana, as mentioned above, have suffered four defeats in the league this season (including this weekend’s reverse at Malaga). Three of those games have been away from home (Celta Vigo, Deportivo La Coruna and Malaga), and one at the Nou Camp (Deportivo Alaves)
Liverpool, like Barca, have a flawless record against the remaining members of the top six this season, but seem to have issues beating supposedly “lower” opponents.

It’s been eight years since a Spanish striker scored a league hat trick for Real Madrid, one of Spain’s top clubs. Quite an interesting stat, but that is precisely what happened when Alvaro Morata netted thrice for Zinedine Zidane’s side in their 4-2 away win at Leganes on 5 April, 2017.
Morata’s three goals in midweek now mean that he is Real’s second highest league scorer this season, behind Cristiano Ronaldo. He is also the first Spanish striker to score a league hat-trick for Real since the legendary Raul Gonzalez did so against Sevilla back in 2008 Continue reading “First Spanish Real Madrid player to score a league hat trick since Raul (2009)- Alvaro Morata”
