Their recent performance justifies their number one position in La Liga. In their last five games, they won four games and rest one was a draw. All of these four wins are maiden ones, which means all of their four opponents failed to score against them. Barcelona defeated Villarreal with 0-2 and Real Madrid with 0-3 on their own turf. They also won the home game against Deportivo with 4-0. Their recent UEFA Champions League home clash against Sporting CP was a 2-0 home win.
