It's the first time that Barcelona failed to score against Atlético Madrid in 3 consecutive games, this happened under Koeman and there are many other negative records he's set in the Catalan club.
1. Champions League unbeaten home record.
2. Defeat to Granada.
Barcelona had never lost a game to Granada at home until Koeman took charge of the club. In the 2020/2021 season, the Blaugranas lost 2-1 to Granada at Camp Nou. The club also dropped points for the first time at Camp Nou to Eibar under Koeman.
3. Winless Champions League run.
The last time Barcelona didn't win 5 consecutive games in the Champions League was in 1997 but 24 years later, Koeman repeated it. Since the club lost 3-0 to Juventus in the 2020/2021 season, they have not won any match. The next game was against PSG, and they lost 4-1 and 1-1 in the second leg. This season, they played Bayern Munich and Benfica, the two games ended in 3-0.
4. Loss to Diego Simeone in La Liga Santander.
Barcelona never lost a game to Diego Simeone in the La Liga Santander until Koeman took charge, in short, Koeman is the first Barcelona manager to lose to the Argentine coach in the Wanda Metropolitano. Furthermore, it is the first time that Barcelona didn't score against them in 3 consecutive games.
5. Poorest group stage run in history.
Barcelona's two defeats in the Champions League to Bayern Munich and Benfica is the first time in the club's history that they lost 2 consecutive games in the group stage. Furthermore, Benfica never defeated Barcelona since 1960, but it happened this season.
Do you think he needs more time to succeed in Barcelona, or he should be sacked?
