The celebration by Barcelona for their La Liga title became such an emotional farewell to the most influential midfielder in the Catalans’ history, Xavi Hernandez. He lifted the domestic league trophy in front of the adoring Camp Nou on Saturday (23/5). The victory was also the momentum of the celebration of their 23rdLiga title. Here are five reasons Barcelona won La Liga.
First, the deadly Lionel Messi-Luis Suarez-Neymar trident. The best thing about them is how Messi is no longer hugely concerned about reaching individual records. He prepared to share the spotlight he has been enjoying with the Brazilian youngster Neymar and Golden Boot winner, Luis Suarez. It is noted that Messi has found the net at 43 times in La Liga and contributed with 17 assists for others. While Neymar has completed his best league campaign at Barca with 22 goals and seven assists. The striker Suazer ending the competition with remarkable 19 goals and nine assists in 27 games.
The newcomers in the club is the second reasons, as Barcelona invested €157 million in the summer to reinforce the squad. Barca have won the league thanks to the contribution of Claudio Bravo between the posts, the brilliance of Ivan Rakitic in midfield, and the goal-scoring chances created for Suarez.
Third, the team’s key player recovering their best form for the match. Gerard Pique, as the example, turned the situation and gave light into the match. Following the excelling years, he was often found drifting away from games, as if his mind was miles away from his body. Fortunately, in recent matches, he has become an automatic selection for Barca’s back line. Several improvements have also been made by fellow starters DaniAlves, Jordi Alba and Sergio Busquets.
More solid defensive system had shown by Luis Enrique who took decisive steps to fix the poor defending and careless mistakes that happened in the previous matches. The coaching staff worked tirelessly to make the back line far more cohesive and it was worth the note, the contribution from the members of Blaugrana back line to the trophy.
The last reason is because Barcelona is able to bounce back from difficulties. Everybody knows that the team was embarrassing on the pitch and a total mess off it. Captain Xavi Hernandez brought the light to his team to manage their frustration into energy with which to beat future opponents.
