FC Barcelona clinched the 2018-19 La Liga title after a 1-0 win against Levante at Camp Nou tonight. Mathematically eliminating Atlético Madrid who’s at the second place. from contention and giving Barcelona its first title of the season with three league games still to play. Now, the only thing left to do in La Liga is to celebrate. Meanwhile, two more objectives remain the Champions League semifinal clash with Liverpool. And the Copa del Rey final against Valencia. So it isn’t over yet!
Moving on, it is the earliest time in the 21st century on which Barcelona have captured the La Liga title. The 2018-19 title further assures Barça’s dominance in the Spanish La-Liga. Barcelona have now in the last eleven (11) years won eight (8) La Liga tittle. This achievement obviously influenced by unarguably the greatest player of all time. And also the current team captain Leo Messi.
However Messi has become the first player in Club history to win ten (10) La Liga tittles. Similar to last season, when the team clinched with three games to play. FC Barcelona led the competition practically from start to finish. Ernesto Valverde’s team will have been number one in 34 of the 38 weeks this season. They were in second place in the four weeks the were not at the top. Twice on goal differential alone and twice by just a single point. Including last season, Barça will have led the league in 70 of the 76 weeks since Ernesto Valverde became the team’s head coach
Finally, Valverde has been extremely incredible and really deserved the La-Liga tittle. The Barcelona coach has used a total of 26 different players with intelligence. Always respecting Barça’s historical style of play. How else could one explain such remarkable victories like the 5-1 rout of Real Madrid at Camp Nou without Leo Messi who was injured. Also another vital victory at RCD Espanyol, Sevilla, Real Madrid and at Real Betis, all of which played a part in the tittle winning.
