The fine work performed by Argentinian coach Helenio Herrrera in Portugal at Belenenses caught the eye of FC Barcelona who duly appointed him as first team coach in the spring of 1958 as successor to Domingo Balmanya. His goal was simple: match then surpass European champions Real Madrid domestically and Herrera delivered the necessary rapid and stunning improvement to ensure Barcelona swept all in front of them over the course of the 1958-59 season. The spectacular League campaign started with a 6-0 win at home to Valencia and ended with a 7-1 home win over Oviedo; add in a brilliant 4-0 win over Real Madrid for the campaign highlight. Barça took the Spanish title four points clear of Madrid and also added the Copa Generalisimo to make it a domestic clean sweep and the very finest of debut years for Herrera.
