Barcelona have equalled their worst tally of La Liga points after six games since the competition reverted to three points for a win.
Ronald Koeman's side drew 1-1 with Deportivo Alaves on Sunday (AEDT), meaning they have just eight points so far in the early stages of the 2020-21 season.
That is the same total as Barca managed at the start of the 2002-03 campaign when another Dutchman, Louis van Gaal, was in charge.
The Blaugrana are currently languishing in 12th place – already eight points behind La Liga leaders and reigning champions Real Madrid.
It has also been a difficult start to the campaign for Lionel Messi too, as he has now gone 877 minutes without scoring in open play.
The Argentina international's last open-play effort came against Napoli in the UEFA Champions League back in August, although he has scored three penalties and one free-kick since then.
