Barcelona Win The Spanish League Title For The First Time Since 2019

BARCELONA (AP) — Barcelona once again reigned supreme in the Spanish league, but this time without Lionel Messi.

Azulgranas won 4-2 against Espanyol on Sunday, ending a four-year drought without a national title. The game ended with the club’s fans storming the pitch and the Barça players running to the locker room.


Xavi Hernández’s team won the title four days ago, two years after the traumatic departure of Argentinean star Messi, who marked an unforgettable era amid the financial difficulties that still plague the Catalan club.

“The league shows that things are going well. This gives us such a sense of stability that we can believe in this project,” said the Barça coach. “The league has been great, we’ve had some glorious wins and some not, but we were a team.”

Robert Lewandowski scored two goals, while Alejandro Barde and Jules Kunde scored Barça’s other goals.

This is Barça’s 27th national championship title. It narrowed the disadvantageous situation with the top winner Real Madrid (35), who surrendered the throne to a strong rival this season.

But as Azulgranas were celebrating in the center circle, a large number of Espanyol fans came onto the field to confront them, so they had to run to find refuge in the tunnel leading to the locker room. This ruined the celebration. Security immediately intervened and riot police stood in front of the tunnel to prevent fans from entering.

“Celebrations were the norm, but there was a time when going to a booth was respectful,” said Xavi.

Lewandowski opened the scoring in the 11th minute with a goal in front of the box after receiving a pass from Bardet. 19-year-old winger Barde scored his first goal of the season at the age of 20.

The game was called just before the suspension when Lewandowski signed for his sixth double of the season. With 21 goals, the Polish striker established himself as the tournament’s top scorer, with a total of 31 goals in all competitions.

Kunde scored Barça’s fourth goal with 53.

Javier Puad led the hosts with a 73 shot through the middle, with Josel scoring the second.

It was on the ninth day that Barça conceded a goal from Marc-André ter Stegen.

Azulgrana reached an irreplaceable total of 85 units. Madrid (71st), who beat Getafe 1-0 on Saturday, are second.

Espanyol, on the other hand, suffered their ninth defeat in the last 11 rounds and are second to last with 31 points, and are likely to be relegated.

The Inco team has played 26 Catalan derbies with Barcelona without a win (7 draws, 19 losses).

Xavi won eight of his 17 seasons with Barça and won his first league title in his first full season on the bench.

“It’s been 10 months of hard work, but I think we’ve done an exceptional job,” said the Barça coach. “This is important for the stability of the project.”

This league is a special league for captain Sergio Busquets, who announced his departure that week.Busquets won 32 titles during his Barça career, including nine in the league.

Relegated Elche beat Atlético Madrid 1-0 to drop to third place with 69 points.

Fidel Chavez scored the game’s goal to give hosts Elche the win after 41 minutes.

It was Atletico’s second defeat in their last 16 league games. The other match was against leaders Barcelona in April.

Mattress captain Jorge ‘Coque’ Lesureción said: “We weren’t what we were supposed to be. We have to learn from this loss to get where we want to be.” “We brought good dynamics, but not today.”

Argentinian coach Sebastian Beccasese’s side, Elche, confirmed relegation last week. This is their fourth win of the season, and they are at the bottom with 19 units.

Valencia goes downhill

Alberto Mari Sánchez was only a few minutes on the field when he scored the goal to give Valencia a 2-1 victory against Celta Vigo and take them out of the relegation zone.

Mari Sánchez scored his first goal in the first division in the 88th minute, just ten minutes after making his third appearance in the competition.

Justin Kluivert put Valencia ahead in the eighth minute, and the Galician side briefly leveled in the 60th minute through Harris Ceferovic.

Valencia are 14th on 37 points, three places above the relegation zone with four games remaining.

After suffering a three-game losing streak, Celta pledged to ensure permanence. There are 39 cars on the 13th level.

Furthermore, Sevilla continued their great moment with a 2-1 win against Valladolid under the direction of Jose Luis Mendilivar.
