The season 2007-2008 was the last of Frank Rijkaard at the head of the FC Barcelona and, why not to say it, the most disappointing of all the ones of the Dutch technician. After consummating the failures in Champions League and Glass of Rey, the Barcelona bit the dust also in LaLiga, in which they finished 18 points by behind the Real Madrid and doing the corridor in Santiago Bernabéu.

From that have happened 12 years and, although the FC Barcelona leave second classified only a point underneath of the leader -also the Real Madrid- the data of the present season are not too better that the ones of then. In fact, the team of Quique Setién only has a point more (55) that the one who in that moment was led by the Ronaldinho, Deco or Samuel Eto'or (54).

Along the 12 seasons sigueintes, the FC Barcelona never had accumulated so few points in the 26 first days, something that has to do reflexionar a lot about the sportive project culé. It is true that it is very difficult to equalise all the made by the Barça of Guardiola, but in the present season not even is achieving keep in shape of Luis Enrique or the two first campaigns of Ernesto Valverde.

Along the last 20 years, the Barça only had found in six occasions by behind the 55 points of the present season (always taking of reference the day 26). In addition to with Rijkaard, sucedió the same with Serra Ferrer, Rexach, Go Gaal and Antic. The negative record was in the season 2002-03, in which the team was in ninth position with 33 points.

A very equalised league

The present edition of LaLiga is to the red alive. So much by the high zone of the classification as by the low zone, the equality is maximum in the teams and happened the equator of the championship is difficult to discern those that can remain champions, in European places or descended. Even the distance between the leader and the colista, of alone 34 points, is much narrower that in the last lustros.

In the fight by LaLiga there are two teams that present like aspiring maxima: andl FC Barcelona and the Real Madrid,​ between which only there is a point of difference -favourable to the whites, that explain besides with the 'goal average'​- after 26 days contested. Both teams carry a similar path in the present season and the equality boasts maximum to the end.
