“If you reach 53 points after 20 games, you win every time.”
FC Barcelona, which is leading the Spanish La Liga in the 2022-2023 season, showed confidence in winning the championship. Barça has 17 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss (42 goals, 7 points) until the 20th round, with 53 points, beating rival Real Madrid by 8 points and cruising towards the top. 스포츠토토
Real lost 0-1 to Real Mallorca last week thanks to Nacho’s own goal, and is in second place with 45 points from 14 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses (40 goals, 17 conceded). Barça picked up momentum last week with a 3-0 thrashing of Sevilla at home.
Barça later emphasized on its homepage that “this is not the first time that a team has scored more than 50 points after 20 games,” and that there have been more than four cases, all of which have won La Liga champions.
The first was the 2008-2009 season, when Pep Guardiola took over as manager, and the team recorded 53 points after 20 games. Since then, Barça have won the title with 27 wins, 6 draws, 5 losses and 87 points.
Similar cases occurred in the 2010-2011 and 2012-2013 seasons. Most recently, in the 2017-2018 season, Barça recorded 54 points after 20 matches. It was an undefeated streak with 17 wins and 3 draws. And as a result of 38 rounds, they won with 93 points, 28 wins, 9 draws and 1 loss.
Barça repeatedly emphasized these four precedents and said, “The omen is good.”
