La Liga MD38
Barca need Real Madrid to drop points against Levante if they are going to overtake them on the final day.
If they are to pull it off it would be the 4th in a row for the first time since 1990 - 1994 (Only time achieved by Barca)
Lionel Messi starts on the bench in this one with the Camp Nou prepped for the return of the King!
2 goals and an assist on Messi’s 31 minute return after 8 game absence, but an injury late on
It isn’t enough as Real Madrid win 1-0 against Levante!
Real Madrid win their 1st title in 3 years!
Just their 3rd
out of the last 10
95 points is the 4th highest
with the 3 points win rule. And Barcelona’s 2nd place 94pts is the 2nd highest
for that position (Real M 96 2010).
94pts would have won the league in the last 7 seasons
Real M achieve joint record fewest goals conceded with Atleti 2016 and Deportivo 1994.
for FCB is lowest since 2015 treble winning season, 81 scored is lowest since 2008 (haven’t been below 90 since then!)
Consistency that we didn't hold too after beating them!
We had the lead for so long
Borja Fornas –
We did everything we could to win the league, but despite the amount of points collected it just wasn’t enough. We have to say Congratulations Real Madrid as they kept within distance the whole time and just pipped us to it.
Messi was magic. I would like to stress that we took him off as a precaution late on as he was struggling with his calf, but this is first competitive game back and we weren’t (maybe we should) expecting him to be at that level.
That image makes me feel ill. Madrid don't win La Liga anymore
The Champions League is of even higher importance now. It was the main objective at the start but going without any trophies could be the end of Fornas.
CL FINAL COMING UP SOON!!!
