Barcelona can be declared the champion of Spain today, this would be the first time in this century without Leo Messi in the lineup


Today, Barcelona players have the opportunity to win the title of Spanish champion, for the first time in four years.

Barcelona will play the city derby away from home against Espanyol today and with a win they would be champions for the first time since 2019.

The Catalan giants have won the Spanish championship 26 times so far and tonight in the match starting at 21:00 they will have the opportunity to lift the trophy again.

In case of victory, Barcelona would reach 85 points, which would be an unattainable advantage from Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid, with four rounds remaining.


Interestingly, this would be Barcelona’s first title in this century that it would win without Lionel Messi in the lineup.

The Argentine made his debut for Barça in the 2004/05 season when the Catalans won their first title this century, and he then guided them to titles in 2005/06, 2008/09, 2009/10, 2010/11, 2012 /13, 2014/15, 2015/16, 2017/18 and 2018/19, when the title arrived for the last time at Camp Nou.
