FC Barcelona’s striking and irregular record playing on a Friday


The FC Barcelona will receive this Friday (21:00 hours) in Montjuïc to the RCD Mallorca by the day 28 of LaLiga. The culés will have, as almost always, the obligation to take out the victory in his field to try put the maximum possible pressure to Girona and Real Madrid in his respective parties of this weekend, but besides to happen the page quickly and begin to think in the duel in front of the Naples of the next Tuesday by the turn of the eighth of final of the Champions League.

However, for the Barcelona group the duel in front of the Balearic will treat of a very particular party when going back to play a Friday by League, a day of the very atypical week historically and in which the ‘big’ do not are used to to play afterwards that it adopted like part of the day of weekend to try take advantage of the maximum the exhibition in TV. To continuation review how has gone him to the Barça in his history playing in this day.

The Barça will try to lengthen his invicto in Friday

In these last 24 years so only exist three precedents of the Barça playing in Friday, but the good news for the barcelonismo is that it has not lost never, adding two victories and a tie. It is more, the Barcelona team has not fit an alone goal whenever it has played in Friday. On the other hand, neither it is a day that was sufficiently inspiring for the attackers culés when having achieved only 2 goals in these three meetings.

The first party in Friday this century was on 14 April 2006, a Barça-Villarreal in Saint Friday (1-0), on the eve of the semifinal of the Champions between the Barcelona and the AC Milan. The Villarreal played the another semifinal of that Champions, against the Arsenal. The culés arrived to the final against the ‘gunners’ and won his second Champions after a traced back very remembered with goals of Eto’or and Belletti (Almunia in own in reality).

The fault of goal, a ‘tradition’ of the Barça when it plays in this day

The two following parties of the Catalan team in Friday were in front of the Seville. One of them in the atypical League of the Covid: Seville-Barça, on 19 June 2020, that finish with a tie without goals. And the most recent, this season, also against the Seville in Montjuïc, stage of the party in front of the Mallorca. The Barça finish winning (1-0) with goal in own of Sergio Bouquets after a big action of Lamine Yamal.

A record that has big moments and others that a lot of wanted to forget

If we expand the record culé to the 20th century -and to all the competitions-, the record no is not all the positive that it could expect. In total will be the trigesimotercer (33) split that the Catalans will contest in Friday and only have won the half of these clashes: 16 victories by 7 ties and 9 defeats. Between the triumphs stand out three titles of Glass of the King against the Real Sociedad (1913 and 1928) and against the Athletic (2012), and two finals of the Supercopa of Europe against the Shakhtar (1-0) in 2009 and the Port wine (2-0) in 2011.

But if there is a victory that stands out above all is this 2-1 of the turn of the quarter-finals of the Glass of Europe of 1960 against the Real Madrid, since it was the first elimiación of the white group in the maximum European competition after winning consecutively the five first editions. But also it appears one of the most black nights of the history of the club with the 2-8 that the Bayern lumbered with him to the Barça in 2020 in the quarter-finals of the Champions League that contested to only party in full pandemia by the COVID.
