Barcelona manager Xavi Hernandez has set an unwanted record at the club despite his good start to the managerial role in the club’s dugout.
The defeat against Rayo Vallecano in the La Liga ensured Barcelona suffered three successive defeats in a row at the Camp Nou.
Eintracht Frankfurt was the first team to beat Barcelona in those runs, the defeat eliminated the Catalans from the Europa League before the defeat against Cadiz in the La Liga followed by the Sunday night mauling by Rayo Vallecano.
The other occasion the club lost three successive home games came at the end of the 1997-98 season and the start of the 1998-99 season under Dutch boss Louis van Gaal.
Despite the arrival of Xavi to replace Ronald Koeman, Barcelona is still heading for a trophyless campaign this season.
The club directors are expected to carry out major signings when the transfer window opens in the summer.
