FC Barcelona is the champion of LaLiga. Three days before the end of the competition and thanks to a victory for the minimum against Levante (1-0), the team led by Ernesto Valverde returns to be proclaimed champion. It does, as almost always, thanks to the magic of Leo Messi, who scored the winning goal after jumping to the field after the break.
Despite the absence of the 10 in the lineup of Valverde, who is concerned about Wednesday’s game against Liverpool for a place in the Champions League final, Barcelona dominated the game and had plenty of chances, but almost always ran into with a big Aitor under the sticks. Most occasions were born from the boots of Coutinho and Suárez, although they also tried Vidal or Rakitic. None has the elf of Messi, necessary to sentence this league as it has been throughout the course to lead the team as a total footballer.
The last minutes were an agony for the Catalans, who finished the match defending a corner kick.
Barça has added the 26th league in its history, the eighth in recent years. This team, with its pluses and minuses, has been up to an unprecedented regularity for almost a decade. He goes through the domestic championship like Pedro for his house. Of the 38 League days, the Catalans only did not hold the lead in four. This season only Atlético has dared to bother him, not too much, because Madrid was erased from the beginning and wandered like a dying man throughout the year. It has not been easy either, you have to know how to take advantage of the rival mistakes and Barça has become accustomed to not forgiving.
He wins the most, he loses the least (only two defeats against Leganes and Betis) and the one with the most goals, largely due to the lethal sum of his star teammate: Messi and Suarez. With this new goal, Rosario is closer to 600 with the Blaugrana elastic. A playermadness. Without a doubt, it is the beginning, development and outcome. A perfect storyline in this great story directed by Valverde, which he renewed for the tranquility of the parish, in a practical and sensible way. “Winning the title with distance and margin I think they are things that with the competitors we have is difficult, we are happy, it is a pride for all,” he told the microphones of Movistar + Extremadura.
