Barcelona ‘confirm LaLiga title’ as they achieve feat Real Madrid ‘can never overcome’ with win over Sevilla
BARCELONA have “confirmed the LaLiga title.”
That’s by opening up a massive eight-point gap over rivals Real Madrid as they go in search of their first crown since 2019.
Xavi Hernandez’s men made light work of Sevilla on Sunday, cruising to a 3-0 win at the Nou Camp.
And, after Real lost 1-0 at Mallorca earlier in the day, Barca extended their lead at the top of the LaLiga table to eight points.
Social media stats giant MisterChip say Barcelona have NEVER thrown away a title race after going eight points clear.
And to make matters worse for Real, they have never clawed back that same gap for a late leapfrog.
In fact, Los Blancos themselves have history of throwing away an eight-point lead when they lost the LaLiga title race to Valencia.
In 2016, Real were 12 points behind Barcelona before hiring Zinedine Zidane.
And although the Catalans went on to win the title, Real closed to gap down to just one point.
Despite that, Barcelona fans have been celebrating their barnstorming lead loudly on social media, with many convinced this season’s title race is a done deal.
One said: “Madrid doesn’t play anything while Barcelona’s game is spectacular.”
Another declared: “Wrap up a lot these days. In Madrid they are at minus eight.”
One laughed: “Everything was more than ready for Xavi’s Barcelona to win some big titles.”
But another warned: “It is Real Madrid and they can come back even when 99 per cent probability says no.”
