Barcelona fans celebrate team’s hegemony in Spain

The Catalans hoisted their 26th title overall, their eighth in 11 years, and for the second season in a row, no-one in Spain has come close to competing with the Catalans.

Fans rejoiced and took to the streets with many converging on Las Ramblas avenue as fans waved flags and lit flares, chanting the names of their team’s heroes.

The South American duo formed by Luis Suarez and Messi scored a remarkable 55 goals between them, more than 17 teams in the league, including their closest challengers Atletico.

Barca effectively banished Real Madrid from the title race with a 1-0 win in the Clasico in March, inflicting more pain on their biggest rivals, who have endured a harrowing season and sacked two managers before re-appointing Zinedine Zidane.

With the title in the bag and their domestic dominance beyond doubt, Barca’s main challenge is to put right their recent failures in continental football and add the Champions League, which they last won in 2015.

Should they overcome Liverpool in the semi-finals and win Europe’s top prize in Madrid on June 1, no-one will be able to dispute they are the best team at home and abroad.
