Barca have gone two LaLiga seasons without conceding a penalty

Tuesday will mark an interesting milestone for Barcelona, with the club having not conceded a single penalty in the league for two years.

The last decision of this nature to go against then Blaugrana came on February 14, 2016, in the clash with Celta Vigo, which actually finished 6-1 in favour of the Catalan giants.

John Guidetti converted from 12 yards to equalise for the visitors at the Camp Nou after the Swedish forward was bundled to the ground by Jordi Alba.

There has since been a grand total of 76 LaLiga matches played without one being called, an amount which would equal two full league seasons of 38 games.

In this time period a total of 224 penalty kicks have been awarded within the Spanish top flight, whilst none have gone against Barcelona.

The most penalised teams are Valencia and Celta Vigo with 18 penalties respectively,

Real Sociedad follow just behind, having given 16 spot kicks away, and Real Madrid are further down the list, with eight penalty decisions going against them.
