A 'Via Crucis' away from the Nou Camp

The numbers away from home condemned to Barcelona in the league was more complicated than the Guardiola,

Last year at this point, this template could boast of being the best Barcelona in history as a visitor. There were many who said even the best version of the team looked away from Camp Nou. This season, however, play out has become an ordeal. Especially in the league. The numbers are similar to those that signed the Barcelona Rijkaard in full loss of that team.

And is that the team has lost 16 of the 33 points played on the road. In other words, this Barcelona has lost more than 50% of the points away from home. Guardiola has already said ("outside the home do not have the numbers of a champion") and the team yesterday left more than half a league in Pamplona. Ten points of Madrid and the same feeling of the season away from Camp Nou. The team has not been able to move the game of tag that makes at Camp Nou in foreign territory. In total he scored five draws (Real Sociedad, Valencia, Athletic, Espanyol and Villarreal), a result that has hit much of the team numbers. Five draws the team collects (10 points) scored his second defeat yesterday (before he had fallen against Getafe) for a total of 16 points left the team in a very uncomfortable position in the league.

Messi is the paradigm of the difficulties the team away from Camp Nou. The Argentine is not having luck this year in front of goal away from home, on the contrary that at the Camp Nou, where he remains in record numbers. Players and coaches are no explanations, so far, the downturn suffered by the team away from home. Yesterday's defeat was the second team in 41 games. (via SPORT)
