Barcelona Win La Liga


Barcelona have been crowned champions of La Liga after defeating Deportivo La Coruna on Sunday night. The Blaugrana won the title with four games left to play in the division. It becomes the eighth time the club is winning the double of both the Copa Del Rey and La Liga.

Barcelona won the first three all in the same decade in the 1950s but then had to wait until 1998 when Louis van Gaal managed it. Pep Guardiola won the next one in 2009, adding a third title for a treble with the Champions League, a feat repeated by Luis Enrique in 2015 before winning a double again in 2016.

The side have remained unbeaten in the Liga this season and have scored 87 times. They are currently 15 points ahead of rivals Real Madrid and 11 points ahead of second-placed Atletico Madrid.
