FC Barcelona managed to make the best start to La Liga in their history with the 5-0 win over Espanyol Saturday. They have nine points from three games, nine goals netted and not a single one shipped.
It's not the first time that the Blaugrana have had three shut outs at the start of the season but they weren't able to score as many at the other end as well.
The last time they did it was under Luis Enrique in his first season, 2014-15. Barcelona beat Elche 3-0, Villarreal 1-0 away and Athletic Club 2-0. Then they drew 0-0 with Malaga in the next game, another clean sheet.
Claudio Bravo remained unbeaten until week 9. Then Cristiano Ronaldo struck to stop his record at 755 minutes, the Portuguese netting a penalty in the Clasico at the Bernabeu.
The Chilean beat Victor Valdes' previous club record of 686 minutes.
Ter Stegen needs to go unbeaten against Getafe, Eibar, Girona, Las Palmas and Atletico, and survive to the 35th minute of the next game, against Malaga, to match up to Bravo.
The overall league record is Abel Resino's, who in 90-91 went 1275 minutes unbeaten.
