Barcelona’s perfect streak in La Liga has finally been ended as the team has lost some crucial games.
However, Xavi Hernandez’s side remains in second place in La Liga, sharing a point with Sevilla and Atletico Madrid, who are positioned second and third, respectively.
Real Madrid is now a foregone conclusion that they will win La Liga this season.
However, Real Madrid, the La Liga table leaders, is the only Spanish side that has not been issued a red card this season.
This demonstrates that Carlo Ancelotti has instilled discipline in his team.
If Sergio Ramos remains at Real Madrid, though, this record may not be achievable because he is a player who is always sent off at least once a season.
The teams with the most red cards this season are Atletico Madrid and Mallorca.
Both clubs have received more than six red cards in La Liga this season, with the total number of red cards expected to reach ten by the end of the season.
Apart from Atletico Madrid and Mallorca, which have all got seven red cards, Getafe, Levante, Valencia, and Espanyol have all received more red cards than Barcelona.

Xavi Hernandez has a lot of work ahead of him; his team is now placed 14th in the top 20 rankings, and he will need to discipline his players.
Apart from Real Madrid, Villareal is the only La Liga club to have gotten only one red card in the 2012/13 season.
The defending Europa League champions have been in excellent form this season, qualifying for the UEFA Champions League Semi-finals.
This demonstrates that well-disciplined teams can achieve a lot during the season.
Each La Liga club has got a certain number of red cards this season, as shown in the two images above.
