Now it’s official: After four years and for the first time since 1999 without Leo Messi – Barcelona is the champion of Spain. The Catalans tonight (Sunday) officially secured the championship win for the 27th time in their history, when they went to the derby against Espanyol below the red line and managed to beat them 2:4 thanks to a double by Robert Lewandowski and goals by Alex Balde and Jules Conde that closed the door on this wonderful season , when Xavier Fuedo and Khoslo were eliminated. The game, like all Spanish league games, was broadcast on channel ONE for HOT subscribers, yes subscribers, Cellcom TV and Partner TV.

Xavi’s apprentices closed a great season for them by winning two titles – the championship and the Spanish Super Cup. The coach, who came to the club about a year and a half ago, failed in the European arena, but managed to carry the team to the very significant title thanks to the formidable defense that recorded only 13 mandatory goals so far in the league. Barca are now alone at the top with 85 points, while Real Madrid follow with 71 with only four rounds remaining in the season.

Champion in style: 2:4 for Barcelona, ​​champion of Spain!

For the match itself, Xavi fielded a similar lineup to the one he fielded in the last two games against Betis and Ossuna, which ended in victories. Right from the start, the group in yellow controlled what was happening on the pitch, and got paid just 11 minutes later when Alex Balda broke through the wing and cooked in a great way for Robert Lewandowski. Nine minutes later, Pedri broke through from the other side and left Balda in front of an open goal after a masterful pass. Before half-time, Lewandowski was once again Barcelona’s man as he scored his second and his team’s third after Rafinha’s cross.

During the second half, the Colts continued to dominate when already eight minutes into the opening Frankie de Jong gave a master pass to Jules Conde, who put his head down and scored the fourth. Later on, the champion made substitutions and lowered a gear, when the host managed to score two goals from the feet of Javier Fuedo and Khoslo.

As mentioned, Barca experienced a great season in the league on the way to the title after three seasons in which teams from Madrid actually won it. The Catalans have so far scored 64 goals in the league and, as mentioned, only 13 for their duty, which helped them win 27 times, share points four times and lose only three times, with four more rounds remaining as mentioned.

In the individual titles section, Robert Lewandowski made a significant step towards the Pichichi title. The Pole now has 21 league goals followed by Karim Benzema with only 17. In addition, the striker can make history at the club, when if he scores 24 goals he will become the first to score such a total of goals in the first season in the team’s uniform.

At the end of the game, a serious incident occurred, when in the midst of the championship celebrations, the host’s fans broke into the field in order to attack the Barcelona players and staff, who rushed down to the dressing rooms. The crowd remained on the field for a long time, as the security teams blocked the way for the players who fled the arena.
