Although Barcelona are expected to be at the top domestically they are undefeated in La Liga and have won 8 of their opening 9 fixtures.
The last game they participated in domestically was against Osasuna, which ended 0-0 - their first draw of the season.
Tata Martino has made his own mark on the team.
Positioning his wingers extremely wide, making his team stretched; a concept previous coaches have not explored.
Barcelona are also doing well in the Champions league after demolishing Ajax they then went on to beat Celtic at Celtic Park and draw with AC Milan at the San Siro, leaving them top of their group in a comfortable position.
So although Barcelona's form is expected it is still impressive nevertheless.
