Barcelona: Xavi breaks Zidane’s record for longest unbeaten away streak in La Liga
Xavi made La Liga history on Saturday as Barcelona defeated Real Mallorca 1-0.
Since taking over the team, the manager has gone 18 La Liga games without a loss away from home, breaking Zinedine Zidane’s previous record.
Since taking over for Ronald Koeman last November, Xavi has led Barcelona to 13 victories, five draws, and 0 losses on the road in the Spanish top league.
It’s a fantastic statistic that might be difficult to top. Although Barca faces a difficult challenge the following time out, Xavi will also be looking for Barca to extend their unbeaten streak.

However, Barca will remember their last trip to the Bernabeu with fondness. In a thrilling contest in La Liga back in March, Xavi’s team won 4-0.
