The incredible thing about Luis Enrique's Barcelona team is that it keeps making history. Records after records are broken, new marks are set and unattainable goals are easy obstacles to go through for the Catalan giants.
On Thursday, the Blaugrana travel to Madrid for what would be, in a normal day, an unappealing La Liga match against relegation candidates Rayo Vallecano. However, this is not a normal day. This is the day in which another record is in sight, and Barça will be in position to break it. The 1988-89 Real Madrid team long held the longest unbeaten streak in Spanish Football history. They're not alone anymore, since Barça beat Sevilla last Sunday. But now the Catalans can surpass that mark and establish a new record of 35 straight games without a loss.
The recent history suggests Barça are certain to do it: they have won all of the last 10 matches against the Franjirrojos, and Rayo's playing style invites the spectacular counter-attacking prowess of the 'MSN' trio to create hell inside the Vallecanos' defense. In any other day, this would be just another Barça match. These days, it's never that. Today, it's impossible to miss. It's history day. Watch it.
