Barcelona manager Luis Enrique on his 100th game in charge of the Catalans equaled former boss Pep Guardiola’s 28-match unbeaten streak as Barca coach during his time at Camp Nou.
The 2-0 victory over Levante on meant that Barcelona have now gone 28 games unbeaten in all competitions, matching the all-time record for Spanish football set by Pep Guardiola’s amazing team of 2010/11.
Enrique and his troops matched a record that they can now extend at Mestalla on Wednesday when they face Garry Neville’s Valencia in a Copa Del Rey quarter final second leg encounter.
Barça have not lost since the 2-1 reverse at Sevilla on October 3. They have since put together 23 wins and five draws to move top of the league with a game in hand, into the last sixteen of the UEFA Champions League and are also practically through to the Copa del Rey Final after a 7-0 win in the first leg.
The 127-day run has included the magnificent 4-0 win over Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabéu and victory in the Club World Cup in Japan. Among the few setbacks was the 0-0 draw with Espanyol to start the year, but the response to that has been a run of ten wins on the trot, including a vital 2-1 defeat of Atlético to leave the Blaugrana comfortably clear at the top of the Liga table.
