Fc Barcelona Wins Their Second Straight Spanish Title

Catalan club FC Barcelona on Saturday won its second straight Spanish league title after defeating the Granada side by 3 goals to nothing, with a hat trick by striker Luis Suarez.


The result concluded a five-game winning streak that allowed the Catalan club to finish one point ahead of its rival Real Madrid, which had 90 points from 38 games.

Madrid defeated Deportivo 2-0 in La Coruna with two goals scored by Cristiano Ronaldo, but it needed Barcelona to stumble to clinch its first title since 2012.

After the final whistle in Granada, Barcelona players formed a circle near the sidelines and jumped up and down while chanting “Campeones, Campeones.”

Hundreds of football fans from both teams invaded the pitch as players struggled to find their way out of the pitch.

Barcelona, which finished with 91 points, has won six of the last eight Spanish league titles, and eight of the last 12. It has 24 trophies in total, eight less than Real Madrid, the league’s most successful club.

Saturday’s win helped  Fc Barcelona avoid what would have been a disastrous title loss after it led Madrid by 12 points with nine rounds to go.

The title is a deserved consolation for the Catalan club that crashed out of the Champions League in the quarter-final, losing to fellow Spanish club Atletico Madrid.

  1. It was expected for Barcelona to win Saturday's game. Suarez's hat-trick came as a nice surprise. It is good to see Barcelona scoring a victory in this match and adding 3 more points for their league rankings, because they won the championship.
