Barcelona have set a new La Liga record for the longest unbeaten start in league history.

The Blaugrana drew 2-2 at Celta Vigo on Tuesday, as Ousmane Dembele and Paco Alcacer netted for the visitors.

The draw took Barcelona’s unbeaten run to begin the 2017-18 season to 33 games, with Ernesto Valverde’s men winning 25 and drawing eight matches.

At 33 games unbeaten, Barcelona surpassed previous record-holders Real Sociedad, who began the 1979-80 season with a run of 32 games without defeat.

Valverde’s men have just five league games remaining as they look to become the first Liga side to ever go through an entire season undefeated.

The biggest of those five tests will be the season’s second Clasico, with Real Madrid set to visit the Camp Nou on May 6.

Regardless of the Clasico outcome Barca are almost certain to lift the Liga title.

The Catalans boast a 12-point advantage over second-place Atletico Madrid following Tuesday’s result.
