Calendar of FC Barcelona

The visit of the FC Barcelona to the Mallorca is marked by the big absences that have the culés in defence owing to the called 'virus FIFA'. The Barcelona will not have Ronald Araújo neither Jules Koundé in the saga by lesionarse during the stop, whereas Héctor Bellerín neither will be able to be present because of some annoyances that presented in the sóleo of his left leg during a train in the Sportive City.

Besides, so much Frenkie of Jong like Memphis Depay neither will be available, what supposes that Xavi Hernández will have to do some manoeuvres in his traditional approach of face to the day of this Saturday. However, although the aim culé is to achieve the three points and continue putting pressure to the Real Madrid, also there are other events that can suceder in Sound Moix in favour of the first team barcelonista.

And it is that the technician egarense could surpass this weekend the record of 17 consecutive parties without losing to domicile in League, the same that equalised in front of Cádiz and that keeps him on the same line of Zinedine Zidane in 2016. Like this the things, if the Barça great like minimum a tie will have surpassed to the French, although for the moment it is supported by a register of 12 victories and five ties.

In parallel, the Barcelona also will try to keep the defensive solidity that has characterised them in this first part of the season. Marc-André ter Stegen only has received a goal in the first six dates and already chains four parties with the goal in zero, what puts him to 57' minutes to beat his record of imbatibilidad. Up to now it carries 444' without fitting goal in the campaign and his best register dates of the 2019/20, when it reached the 500' without receiving goal.

They could make history

With this on the table, so much Xavi like Ter Stegen could make history in Sound Moix. On the one hand. The one of Terrassa could lengthen his good series like the best visitor of LaLiga, whereas the German, by another, can increase his minutes without fitting goal with the aim to surpass the historical record of Claudio Bravo, the one who in the 2014/2015 reached the 755' minutes. Casually, this same campaign was when the Barcelona raised his last Champions. It will be necessary to see if the history repeats .
