Football: Barcelona can crown themselves champions in the derby

Football: Barcelona can crown themselves champions in the derby


The City derby in Barcelona takes place under special circumstances on Sunday (9pm). If Barcelona beat Espanyol away, the “Blaugrana” will not be able to win the Spanish championship title. With five rounds remaining, the leaders are 11 points clear of defending champions Real Madrid and 13 points ahead of Atletico Madrid. For Espanyol, it’s about staying up. The penultimate table is three points off 17th.

Barcelona is seeking to win its twenty-seventh league title, its first in four years and the first in coach Xavi’s tenure. With the former World Champion and European Champion, in charge since November 2021, the Catalans have only won the 2023 Spanish Super Cup so far.

In the Champions League this season, the end came after the group stage, after which they failed in the Europa League play-off at Manchester United. In the Copa del Rey, arch-rivals Real Madrid were a big obstacle in the semi-finals. But in La Liga, Barcelona confidently presented itself. Of the 33 matches played so far, only three have been lost and only 11 goals have been conceded.
