After four years of waiting, Barcelona won the Spanish league championship after a 2:4 victory over Espanyol, which opened a gap of 14 points in the table over Real Madrid with 12 points in the cup. The players did start celebrating on the grass of their rival in the city derby, but the host fans broke into the grass and tried to attack the Blaugrana, who tried their best to get to the dressing room.

In Spain they chose to honor the team’s coach, Xavi, after winning the championship. In ‘Marca’ they wrote: “Xavi also put the league title in his pocket and sent Espanyol to the gates of hell”, in the Catalan ‘Sport’ they wrote: “Barca seals the recital in the derby to celebrate the league” and in ‘Mundo Deportivo’ they praised: “A display Eternal of Barca on the way to championship title number 27”. Real also congratulated on social networks, similar to what Barca did after the Blancos won the Copa del Rey about a week ago.

At the same time, the celebrations in the city began and the Catalan fans went out to the main avenue in the city, the Rambles, and sang the club’s songs, in what will probably last the whole night. At 19:00 the official celebrations of the club will be held, which will take out a procession together with the women’s team, which has already promised another championship a long time ago. Xavi’s players will lift the title after the match against Real Sociedad this coming Saturday.
