In his second year in charge of Barcelona, Xavi Hernandez is proving to be the real deal.

The Barca boss has put the club back in the limelight after a disappointing time under Ronald Koeman.

The start to the season has been phenomenal, and following the 4-0 win over Cadiz, Xavi has now equalled the record of 17 unbeaten away games in a row in the La Liga.

The record was set by Zinedine Zidane in 2016, when he was manager of Real Madrid.

Interestingly, Xavi is yet to lose a single away game as Barcelona manager.

Xavi could even break Zidane’s record on October 1, when Barcelona play their next away game in the La Liga, against Real Mallorca.
