Barcelona put in a dominant performance against Elche on Saturday, securing a 4-0 victory in La Liga. The win saw a number of impressive performances from the Catalan giants, with several key stats standing out from the match.

One player who will be particularly pleased with his performance against Elche is Ansu Fati. The young forward scored his first goal in La Liga since October 2022, ending his longest streak without scoring in the competition at 14 games.

Robert Lewandowski continued his excellent form in La Liga this season, opening the scoring for Barcelona against Elche. This was the seventh time the Polish striker has opened the scoring in La Liga this season, making him the most prolific scorer of first goals in the competition.

Barcelona’s overall performance this season also continues to impress, with the team currently on 71 points after 27 matches. Interestingly, this is the same number of points that the club had at the same stage of the 2012/13 season when they went on to finish the campaign with a remarkable 100 points.

The Catalan giants have also been impressive on the road this season, with the team winning 12 away games in La Liga so far. This is the joint-highest number of away wins in Europe’s top five leagues, along with Napoli in Serie A.

Finally, Barcelona also made history in the match against Elche by becoming the first team in La Liga history to keep 20 clean sheets after just 27 rounds. This is a remarkable achievement and highlights the defensive solidity that Xavi’s side has developed this season.
