FC Barcelona led by Xavi Hernández have been on a consistent run of form, collecting 12 wins on the road this term, getting closer to the records set by three legendary Blaugrana managers. As they prepare for Rayo Vallecano in their next away match, the team still has three more away games left to solidify a new record under Xavi.

This season, Barcelona collected three points away from home against Real Sociedad, Sevilla, Cadiz, Mallorca, Valencia, Osasuna, Atletico, Girona, Betis, Villarreal, Athletic, and Elche. Four away games still remain to be played with Rayo Vallecano coming up next followed by upcoming matches against Espanyol, Valladolid, and Celta.

As Barcelona carry on their impressive league campaign under the guidance of club legend Xavi, their splendid run of away game performances has garnered praise as they are on the brink of making history. While the primary focus has always been to win their 27th league crown, the milestones in the journey are difficult to ignore.

Xavi is on the cusp of matching and likely surpassing the record for most away victories set by iconic managers Pep Guardiola (2010-2011), Tito Vilanova (2012-2013), and Luis Enrique (2014-2015), who each gathered 14 wins on the travels. By getting the three points against Rayo Vallecano on 27th April,  Xavi could move within just one win of equalling this impressive record.

In the 2010-2011 season, Pep set a new record for Barcelona with the most away wins, surpassing the previous record of 12 wins. This achievement was later matched by Tito Vilanova in the 2012-2013 campaign famous for securing 100 points. Both coaches achieved 14 wins, 3 draws, and 2 losses during their respective seasons but Luis Enrique also joined the party in a 2015 treble-winning campaign.

The Spanish maestro-turned-coach looks on course to break the long-standing record set by his predecessors but the cherry on top is the possibility of claiming a 100-point season. Barcelona has eight games remaining this season and claiming all three points will put both the players and Xavi in the golden section of the club’s history book.
