Barcelona marching unstoppably towards their first league title since 2019

Barcelona emerged triumphant on Sunday night in an ecstatic fashion, snatching the victory in the dying embers of the game. A match that started with a rather misfortunate own goal from Ronald Araújo, turned into a magnificent remontada of the Blaugrana, earning all the 3 important points in the La Liga title race.

With this win, Barcelona move 12 points clear at the top of the La Liga standings and go to the international break with the title virtually secured. With a potential victory obtained on a very hostile territory, Real Madrid could have moved closer to the Blaugrana, closing the gap to just 6 points and making the title race open again, but these are just distant ifs from the reality.

However, they weren’t far from scoring at 1-1, which could have overturned the mental state of the match and made it harder for the Catalans to get something out of the game. Essentially, Asensio found the back of the net, but it was disallowed – rightly – by VAR due to a marginal offside. The game of fine margins.

The facts are, however, that Barcelona are currently marching unstoppably towards their first league title since 2019, and this mental strength and heroic comeback to win their 100th Clásico against their bitter rivals is just another characteristic of the true champions.

With just 12 games left from the 2022-23 season, Xavi is already grabbing that trophy with one hand, and essentially, now it’s just a matter of time until it becomes a reality.
