In 13 visits to Camp Nou as coach of the opposing team, Unai Emery has never managed to come away with success, losing on each of his journeys where he challenged Barcelona in Catalonia. Sunday’s loss as manager to Villarreal marked his 800th game as a manager, having made his debut for Lorca in 2005 in Segunda B. Emery’s last visit to Camp Nou came when he was at the head of PSG. The Parisians arrived with a 4-0 lead in the first leg in this Champions League confrontation, but lost 6-1 to be finally eliminated at the end of the famous and painful “Remontada” of March 2017.

Emery also lost at Camp Nou as a coach of Spartak Moscow (3-2) and in the Copa del Rey semi-final with Valencia (2-0). He also lost in the Blaugrana enclosure in La Liga with Almeria, Valencia, and Sevilla and of course, 4-0 on Sunday with Villarreal, giving him a goal difference of 10 for and 43 against.
