Philippe Coutinho set up goals for Luis Suarez and Samuel Umtiti to help Barcelona establish the new Liga milestone. Barcelona took the record outright by surpassing Real Sociedad’s mark of 38 straight league games without a loss that had stood since 1980. Barcelona remains undefeated through 32 rounds this season and finished their last campaign without a loss over the final seven games under former coach Luis Enrique. “We wanted to reaffirm the great league campaign we are having after the setback the other day,” Suarez said.
