In their most recent match Barcelona played against Benfica on Tuesday, with the final score being a boring 0:0 draw, while playing at home. The Catalan giants are still finding their rhythm under new manager and club legend Xavi, with Barca not conceding a single goal in two games with him at the helm, but the only goal they scored came from the penalty spot. Los Cules are currently unbeaten in five meetings, recording three draws and two wins in the process. Performing at home proved advantageous throughout the last ten Barcelona clashes, as the visitors left the ground empty-handed five times and won in only two cases. One of their most recent five encounters produced over 2.5 goals with two seeing both of the teams netting goals. Within this timeframe Barca was successful in keeping three clean sheets and failed to score in just one match. Over the course of the team’s previous five encounters, the sides scored an average of 2 goals.
