Barcelona move onto 32 matches and SIX consecutive Champions League seasons undefeated at home

Barcelona move on to 32 matches and SIX consecutive Champions League seasons undefeated at home with win over Liverpool… but are still 11 games from matching Bayern Munich’s record

  • Barcelona have gone six years unbeaten at home in the Champions League
  • Following the 3-0 win over Liverpool, Barcelona have not lost in 32 home games
  • Real Madrid have also managed to go 32 games unbeaten in the competition
  • However, Barca are still 11 games short of Bayern Munich’s record of 43 matches

Lionel Messi has understandably stolen the headlines for his wonderful display against Liverpool where he netted a brace at the Nou Camp on Wednesday night.

The Argentine forward scored his 600th career goal, which incredibly came 14 years to the day after his first goal for Barcelona against Albacete in 2005.

The impressive win also marked six consecutive seasons unbeaten at the Nou Camp for Catalan giants, matching Real Madrid’s record of 32 matches without loss when at home.

Los Blancos managed to achieve the impressive feat between 1975 to 1990 but the record for longest unbeaten run at home goes to Bayern Munich.

The Barvarians set the record of 43 home games unbeaten between 1969 to 1991, where they won three European Cups in that time period.

Barcelona’s current run has also seen memorable matches that have been played out at the Nou Camp.

This includes the mesmerising 6-1 win over PSG in 2017, the 3-0 win over Bayern in 2015, the 4-0 win over Manchester City in 2016, and this season’s 5-1 win over Lyon along with the quarter-final 3-0 win over Manchester United.

The La Liga side have also never conceded more than one goal in a game which includes 17 clean sheets. 

Of the 99 goals Barcelona have scored at home in the past six seasons, Messi has netted 35 of them and assisted a further 11.
