Barcelona equalled Bayern Munich’s record of 29 successive home games without defeat in the Champions League, following their draw against Tottenham.
Tuesday’s 1-1 stalemate at Camp Nou extended Barca’s undefeated streak on home soil in Europe – a run dating back to September 2013 with 26 wins and three draws.
Bundesliga giants Bayern set the record in a sequence that spanned 1998 to 2002 at their former stadium, Olympiastadion.
Already guaranteed a spot in the competition’s last 16, Lionel Messi and Barca shared the spoils against visitors Tottenham on the sixth and final match-day in Group B.
Ousmane Dembele’s stunning opener was cancelled out by Spurs forward Lucas Moura with five minutes remaining as Barca recorded a lower possession figure (48.8 per cent) than their opponent in a Champions League group-stage game for the first time since 2006.
