“Barcelona Claims 27th La Liga Title, Breaking 2-Year Drought”

Barcelona Clinches La Liga Title for 27th Time

FC Barcelona won its first La Liga title since 2019 and its 27th overall title on May 11, 2021. The triumph ended Real Madrid’s three-year domination of the Spanish league and put Barcelona back on top where it belongs.

Here is how Barcelona clinched La Liga title:

Game 1: On May 8, Barcelona faced Atletico Madrid at Camp Nou. An early goal from Messi gave Barcelona an edge. Bets were evened with a goal from Atletico Madrid’s Angel Correa. However, another goal from Messi secured Barca’s victory and clinched the La Liga title.

Game 2: Barcelona cemented their place at the top of the table after Granada managed to hold Real Madrid to a 4-1 win. Barcelona’s fate was entirely in their own hands and they made the most of their chance by winning against Atletico Madrid.

Barcelona’s victory comes after a turbulent year both on and off the pitch. The team changed their coach midway through the season but the team’s fortunes improved after Ronald Koeman took over. The team’s star player, Lionel Messi, was also embroiled in transfer controversies, and the team was hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Barcelona is the most successful team in Spanish history and will now turn their focus to the upcoming Copa del Rey final against Athletic Bilbao on April 17. A win in this game will give them their first domestic double in four years.

As of now, Barcelona has 81 points, and they have a chance to add more to their tally with three La Liga games still to be played. The team has won 26 games, drawn three, and lost just five.

Barcelona’s Success Factors

There are several factors that led to Barcelona’s success this season. First and foremost, Lionel Messi’s form improved after a difficult start to the season. Messi has been at the heart of the team’s success. With 28 goals and nine assists, he has been instrumental in taking Barca to the top of the table. Additionally, young players like Pedri, Frenkie de Jong, and Ronald Araujo have emerged as key players in the squad.

In midfield, Sergio Busquets has been marshalling the team efficiently and has provided the much-needed stability in the middle. The defence, too, has held strong throughout the season, with Gerard Pique and Clement Lenglet leading from the front.

Barcelona’s success has also been attributed to their tactical flexibility under Koeman. The team has remained fluid throughout the season, switching formations depending on the situation. Koeman has also been praised for his ability to integrate youth players into the team and for fostering a team culture that allows every player to contribute.


Barcelona’s victory in La Liga this season is a testament to the team’s perseverance, resilience, and commitment in the face of adversity. The team’s performance this season provides a platform for future success. They are a young team with a lot of potential and are well equipped to take on the challenges that lie ahead. The fans will be hoping that this is just the beginning of a new era of success for this storied football club.
