Barcelona crowned Laliga champions
Barcelona were crowned La Liga champions on Sunday for the 27th time after a convincing 4-2 win over Espanyol in Cornella.
Xavi’s side sealed the title in style with an impressive display to end a four-year spell without the trophy and clinch the title for the first time since Lionel Messi departed from the club.
There may have been nerves in the Barcelona team but they didn’t show on the pitch as the visitors took an early lead and never really looked back.
Robert Lewandowski got things going by scoring his 20th goal in 30 La Liga games this season, before Alejando Balde scored his first goal for the club.
Another Lewandowski goal had Barca in cruise control, while Jules Kounde also netted for the first time in Barca colors.
The win means Xavi’s side deservedly seal top spot with four games left to play in the 2022-23 campaign.
Xavi’s team are far from the finished article, as was demonstrated in European competition, but there’s no doubt they’ve been the best team in Spain this season.
