There are many reasons why Barcelona have unravelled this season. Gerard Pique is not one of them, though.
It is likely to be of little comfort to the veteran defender after such a traumatic conclusion to the campaign, but the 33-year-old has posted some extraordinary numbers.
It will come as a surprise to learn that Pique has made more successful passes (2681) than any other defender, given Barca's traditional preoccupation with possession.
However, Pique has also been imperious at the back.
He may not carry a great goalscoring threat but, unlike Sergio Ramos for example, he features in the top 10 of nearly every major facet of the role and ranks second for aerials won (129), second for headed clearances (90) and fourth for possession won (220).
Essentially, no other centre-back can match Pique's level of all-round defensive excellence.
