Barcelona breaks another Champions League record

The Tues­day night Cham­pi­ons League game is not just a vic­to­ry for the club but also has oth­er attached records to it. The 4–0 vic­to­ry against Borus­sia Monchenglad­bach record­ed the first Cham­pi­ons League hat-trick for Arda Turan, it also records Mascherano’s 300th offi­cial game for Bar­ca. Now it sets anoth­er Cham­pi­ons League record for FC Barcelona.

The club puts up a record of 993 pass­es with­in 90 min­utes of play on the field. Luis Enrique’s men beats Guardiola’s men of 2010 after set­ting their record of 971 pass­es against Rubin Kazan.

Of the 993 pass­es made, 905 pass­es are suc­cess­ful. It only shows that Barcelona have not lost their tiki taka style of play. This new record for Bar­ca only puts them as the top eight club in whole of Europe to make the most com­plete pass­es in a sin­gle game. Pep Guardiola’s Bay­ern Munich occu­pies  the 9th and 10th high­est pass­es in Europe.

For indi­vid­ual pass­es, no play­er have being able to come close to Xavi after mak­ing 184 pass­es against Celtic in 2014. Xavi Her­nan­dez still remains the play­er that have mad the most pass­es in a sin­gle Cham­pi­ons League game.
