Fair Play leaders in First and Second

Guardiola and Eusebio’s teams are top of the Fair Play charts in both the first and second divisions respectively.

Halfway through the season, FC Barcelona find themselves top of the Fair Play table in both the top divisions. Guardiola's team has 41 points (the lower the number the better in this classification), followed by Malaga (47 points) and Real Madrid (57 points), after 22 games. The ranking is based on the number of cards received in the competition. Barça currently have 36 yellows and not one red, and are on course for coming top of the chart for the second season in a row.

The team with the highest score is Espanyol, with 100 points, followed by Getafe with 94.

In the second division, the team coached by Eusebio Sacristán is also flying the Barça flag for fair play. Barça B has 48 points, seven less than Tarragona (55 points) and 16 less than Deportivo and Valladolid (both on 64 points). (via FCBarcelona.com)
