Barcelona's victory over Getafe could prove to be decisive for LaLiga Santander's standings come the end of the season, sbo168 but it did guarantee another weekend at the top of the league table.It also ensures that they will be top at the end of the first half of the season, making them 'winter champions', even if Eibar leave Camp Nou with a win next weekend.Leading the league is habitual for Ernesto Valverde and his Barcelona side, having held top spot in 50 of the 56 matchdays that he has been at the club for.It is no surprise that the reigning champions are on track to retain their title again this season.Although this season has not been as plain sailing like last season, sbo168 Barcelona are improving and have managed to secure points, even when it looked difficult, like against Getafe, Rayo Vallecano and Atletico Madrid. Combined with the spectacular displays put on against the likes of Real Madrid and Espanyol, it is a real mix of games which has earned them points.The Catalan side now have a five-point lead over Atletico, seven over Sevilla and 10 over Real Madrid with half of the season still to play.Valverde also enters the history books as one of few coaches to have led the Spanish domestic league for 50 games, only five behind Luis Enrique with one season less.Should Barcelona stay on top until the end of the season, only Frank Rijkaard and Pep Guardiola will have been there longer. sbo168
