FC Barcelona celebrated their title of Spanish champion on Saturday evening at Camp Nou, but Real Sociedad came to win in Catalonia (1-2).
Spanish champion since last Sunday, the FC Barcelona found a Camp Nou in celebration, but the formation of Xavi bowed to the Real society (1-2), Saturday evening. The Blaugranas’ first defeat at home this season in La Liga, the 4th in all.
The Basque players welcomed the Barcelonans with a guard of honour, the traditional aisle reserved for the new champion, before being as realistic as possible. They opened the entry score by Mikel Merino (5th) and Alexander Sorloth, decisive passer on the first goal, doubled the lead 20 minutes from the end (72nd).
Lewandowski’s 22nd goal
Robert Lewandowski revived the suspense before added time, with a header from a cross from Ferran Torres (90th), to take a lead over Karim Benzema in the race for Pichichi (22 goals against 17).
Ousmane Dembélé, holder, did not have much success in his one-on-one. And attacking players will have the opportunity to improve their stats in the last 3 matches of the season, against Valladolid, Mallorca and Celta de Vigo.
Barca still lifted the La Liga trophy to their home crowd after the encounter, with Sergio Busquets bringing the cup back onto the pitch.
