New record difference with Real Madrid: 19 points


The Liga Santader has ended with a new record difference between FC Barcelona and Real Madrid. The white defeat against Betis (0-2), coupled with the Blaugrana draw in Ipurua against Eibar (2-2) has left the distance between both teams in 19 points.

The new record surpasses the 17 points that the team of Ernesto Valverde achieved last year, a distance that equaled the difference established in the 1984-1985 season, with Terry Venables at the helm of FC Barcelona.

That course, Barca was champion, with 53 points, while Real Madrid was fifth, with 26, behind Athletic, Athletic and Real Sociedad. Amancio Amaro started directing a white team that ended with Luis Molowny in charge.

The 17 points of distance were much more meritorious, considering that at that time only two points for victory were added.

Last season, the Blaugrana team won the title with 93 points and the Madrid team was third, with 76.

The greatest historical distance between these two rivals is still in favor of Real Madrid, which the 2002-2003 season finished 22 points above Barça.

Vicente del Bosque led the white team, while at Barça Louis van Gaal started and Radomir Antic finished, after a transitional step by Toño de la Cruz.
