The worst in Europe…a number that reveals Barcelona’s major crisis in 2024

The Villarreal match showed Barcelona’s defensive suffering, which is strongly confirmed by the numbers, as Barcelona is the weakest defense line so far in the five major leagues after a month of 2024.

The Submarines team succeeded in scoring five goals past goalkeeper Iñaki Peña, bringing the total number of Barcelona goals scored in 2024 to be 19 goals in 8 matches.

Barcelona conceded 4 goals twice, the first against Real Madrid in the Super Cup final, and the other against Athletic Bilbao in the quarter-finals of the Spanish King’s Cup.

So far, Barça has only managed to score a clean sheet once, against Osasuna in the Super Cup semi-final. Other than that, it has conceded at least a goal in every match.

Sevilla is the second weakest defense line in 2024, after the Andalusian club conceded 13 goals in 6 matches, then the Italian Frosinone comes third with 13 goals in 4 matches.

Not only that, but Barcelona’s defenders made 8 errors that led to goals in all tournaments, making its players the second most guilty of errors after Brighton (10 goals) in the five major leagues.

From the above, it is clear that there is a major crisis in the defenses of Xavi Hernandez’s battalion, which was acknowledged by the coach himself, as well as the defense leader, Ronald Araujo.

It remains to be noted that last season Barcelona conceded 44 goals over the course of the entire season, but now, after 21 rounds of La Liga have passed, they have conceded 46 goals.
