Barça, if no one fails, could win the League on matchday 35, around May 20 or 21, against Real Sociedad at the Camp Nou. In the event that the whites did not complete the plenary session in the coming days, he could even sing the alirón in the derby against Espanyol in Cornellá, which will be played on matchday 34, around the second week of May, the weekend after the King’s Cup final between Real Madrid and Osasuna at La Cartuja in Seville.
reach 100 points
The azulgranas have 76 points, with an advantage of eleven over Real Madrid, who have 65 and once again open the gap with Atlético in second position, since the colchoneros are left with 60. Barça could reach 100 points if they get the full, since they have 76 and there are eight days left to play, with which they would obtain the 24 points that distance them from that barrier.
The team of Xavi will go down in League history as the least thrashed in history. At this point he has only conceded nine goals. Ter Stegen, who was decisive again against Atlético with his interventions, is the franchise player for the Catalans. This is going to be the first league that Barça is going to win by giving priority to defense since 1945, to the point that they have won ten games 1-0. Xavi has embraced cholismo even though his speech insists that he maintains his commitment to the Barça style, with possession and an offensive game. In this team he has shamelessly prioritized the defensive aspect, with Xavi minimizing the risks behind, where Araujo, Christensen, Koundé and Balde have been the best arguments for the Catalans.
after the cup
Ferran scored at minute 44 and that goal gave Xavi’s men the three points, who still have to face Rayo in Vallecas on Wednesday, on April 29 against Betis at the Camp Nou, on Tuesday May 2 they also receive in home to Osasuna, travel to Cornellá to then face Espanyol on May 13 or 14, receive Real Sociedad on the weekend of May 20 or 21, travel to Valladolid, wait at home for Mallorca and finish in Vigo.
The Catalans, who scored again three and a half games later, inflicted the second defeat on Atlético since the World Cup was played. Xavi’s men had also been the executioners of the mattresses in the first, with a victory by the minimum in the Metropolitan. For Oblak, “it was an open game, but we lost and not much more can be said. The sensations have not been the best”. The author of the goal, Ferran, affirms that this triumph on a day as marked in Catalonia as Sant Jordi, “is a great step in the search for the League. We have worked very well and the team has helped us a lot.”
