Barcelona’s superb start to the season continued on Saturday with a 3-0 win at Leganes thanks to goals from Luis Suarez and Paulinho.

It was also yet another clean sheet for Barca who have conceded just four goals from their opening 12 games - which according to Opta is a club record.

While Barcelona have not always played their most attractive football this season, there is absolutely no question that defensively they have been brilliant.

Marc-Andre ter Stegen was superb yet again at Leganes with a string of saves as he kept yet another clean sheet.

However, Barca’s defence will be well and truly tested next time out in La Liga as they head to Valencia with no Gerard Pique and no Javier Mascherano.
