Barcelona suffer worst league start in 25 years

Defeat to Granada means Barcelona's start to the 2019/20 season is their worst in the league in 25 years.

Ever since the league awarded three points for a win, they have never had so few points after five games.

Two defeats, one draw and two wins mean that Barcelona have taken seven points from a possible 15 and remain without a win on the road, having drawn one and lost two away fixtures.

In that time, Barcelona have conceded nine goals across five games.

In 1994/95, Barcelona had five points at this stage, but with the same record of two defeats, one draw and two wins.

The LaLiga Santander champions remain without a win on the road since they beat Alaves on matchday 34 of 2018/19.
