Koeman finds his way home
The Barca, who in recent seasons paid dearly for his failures away from home, has linked six victories away from his stadium in the League, some records that had not been seen for a long time in Barcelona.
Ronald Koeman's FC Barcelona has found since December that regularity that always characterizes the big teams and favorites for the titles. And part of it comes from the improvement of his football and results away from home, the great lacquer of the team the previous years.
For a long time, the culé box suffers a lot away from its stadium, where he usually leaves many points in LaLiga Santander, something that has also led to several eliminations in competitions such as the Copa del Rey and especially the Champions League, where it is no longer one of your favorites in football betting due to poor performance at home from previous campaigns.
But nevertheless, Barça has linked six consecutive victories in the League away from Barcelona, against Real Valladolid (0-3), Huesca (0-1), Athletic Club de Bilbao (2-3), Granada (0-4), Elche (0-2) and Real Betis Balompié (2-3). A very positive dynamic that accompanied by other triumphs at home, has shot the Catalans in the classification, who no longer have reason to think that they will finish outside the top four in the domestic competition.
More than three years ago
In fact, to find records that good out of home, you have to go way back on the calendar. Specifically at the end of the season 2016-2017 and at the beginning of the 2017-2018, winning six consecutive away games. The same thing happened a year ago, with the end of the 2015-2016 and the beginning of the 2016-2017. Likewise, to find that brand in a single course, that there is no vacation in between that streak, you have to go back to the start of the 2015-2016.
And to see a better dynamic, that is to say, of seven or more victories, You have to move on the calendar until the beginning of LaLiga 2012-2013 when the team reached the sum of 100 points to prevail in the fight for the title, achieving the feat of winning in 10 consecutive trips in said competition.
This shows that Koeman is hitting the key that Barça needs to once again be a worthy competitor in the championships he disputes. You may go blank in your first campaign, but from there, start the next one as one of the most feared rivals both for his football and for his general results and the projection of your template.
Precisely a mission for which the Dutch technician came mainly, that he left the Netherlands team due to the ambitious and change project he faced if he accepted the position of coach in the Barça team, which he has managed to redirect from his bad beginnings to this situation that had not been lived since times with Luis Enrique on the bench.
