Xavi Hernandez led Azul Grana to 18 games unbeaten away from home, setting a new league record for the city.

Barcelona coach Xavi Hernandez set a new Ligue 1 record after Saturday’s 1-0 win over Mallorca as coach, having played 18 games unbeaten away from home. Consecutive runs undermined former Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane, according to Mundo Deportivo.

Xabi took over as Azul Grana’s coach after Ronald Koeman in November last year. He made his debut as the Catalan giants defeated Villarreal 3-1 before the 42-year-old set a new record for 18 games unbeaten away from home (W13 D5). 

‘Statistics, if they don’t include trophies That would be a good thing. It means we are on the right path. But it also depends on the home game ufabet. if they lead to a championship Stats would have tasted better, but at the moment they are small things,’ Xabi said.

Xavi also has an important test for Barcelona’s next away game, with the Clasico clash with Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu on Day. October 16.

With Madrid now under pressure to get a result at home against Osasuna tomorrow night in order to take back the top spot in the league, the return of a neck-and-neck title race in the top flight of Spanish football is a joy to bear witness to once again.
