Last night, Barcelona thumped 3rd placed Sevilla 4-0, to confirm their superiority at the top of La Liga. A total annihilation of one of their nearest challengers, moving them 6 points clear with just 6 games remaining, and all wihout their star player Lionel Messi involved, this was a seriously good game for Barcelona. But significantly, in rattling in 4 goals (which can be viewed here), they also moved onto a total of 92 league goals for the season. This beats the previous club record that was held by Johann Cruyff‘s famous “Dream Team” of the early 90s. Given that Cruyff’s side contained players such as Pep Guardiola, Gheorghe Hagi, Ronald Koeman, Michael Laudrup, Romário and Hristo Stoichkov, this is a stunning achievement.
Is there a finer team in Europe at the moment? It is difficult to think that there could be. Either way, I’m sure I am not alone in my eagerness to see the next chapter in their quest for Champions League glory this season. But as Ben King at Soccerlens points out, there might well be a certain Czech goalkeeper who is not sleeping all that well right now.
