MOTM: R. Lewandowski.

Fermín López’s goal against Valencia came after a sequence of 24 passes, the longest prior to a FC Barcelona goal in LaLiga since February 2021 (35 passes in Trincão’s goal v Alavés).

Ronald Araujo has been shown two red cards, conceded two penalties and made two errors leading to goals this season in all competitions, the most of any LaLiga player in total (six).

Players to have won the most points with their goals in LaLiga 2023/24:

  • ROBERT LEWANDOWSKI – 17 (16 goals)
  • Jude Bellingham – 14 (17 goals)
  • Borja Mayoral – 14 (15 goals)

Barcelona’s Fermín López has scored in consecutive LaLiga games for the first time, and now has as many goals as he had in his previous 22 league games (two).

Against Barcelona, Valencia have fielded a starting XI with an average age of 22 years and 198 days, the youngest of any team in a LaLiga game since at least the 05/06 season.

Marc Andre Ter Stegen has conceded the last 12 penalties he has faced.

Barcelona have scored eight goals from corner kicks in LaLiga 2023/24, their highest tally in a single league campaign since 2017/18 under Ernesto Valverde.

Barcelona conceded two goals in the first half of a home game in all competitions for the second time this season (also against Girona in LaLiga in December 2023).

Barcelona suffered a 2-3 defeat to Real Madrid in their previous LaLiga match, but have yet to lose consecutive league games this season. The Blaugrana side have only lost back-to-back games in the league once previously under Xavi (L2 in May 2023).
