Barcelona facing worst season points total in over decade

Barcelona are facing their worst season points total in over a decade.

Barcelona now find themselves in a situation where they must win their last two games to avoid registering their worst points total in the last 13 years.

The Blaugrana currently sit on 76 points and taking six from their final two LaLiga Santander games would put them on 82, the same as last season.

Failure to secure two victories in the remaining games would mean going back to 2007/08 to find a worse Barcelona points total in LaLiga.

That season, under Frank Rijkaard, the Catalans finished third and way off the pace, costing the Dutch boss his job that summer.

In recent years, Barcelona have tended to reach around 91 points, with 100 being the highest, in 2012/13.

Therefore, regardless of what happens against Celta Vigo and Eibar, this Barcelona team will be far behind their recent predecessors.
