Barcelona. With their 10th win in all competitions, Barcelona pulled off a powerful comeback to clinch the title on Sunday Spanish league.

Jordi Alba, Gavi and Rafinha all scored in Barca’s 3-0 home win over Sevilla. They extend their lead over Real Madrid to eight pointswho a few hours earlier had lost during a visit to Mallorca at the start of the second round of the distance.

“We are having a very good season, playing well,” Alba said. “We are happy, there is still a long way to go in the League, eight points is a good distance to continue this streak.”

Alba made his debut as the tournament’s top scorer after finishing a superb back-to-frame pass from Franck Kessie in the 58th minute.

Gavi followed up with a 70, pushing the ball into the net with an open frame, a diagonal from Rafinha.

Rafinha scored the third goal in the 79th minute, entering the area through the middle to finish off a low pass from Alba.

As for the defense, during the 15th day out of 20 games played, goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen did not concede a goal.

The leader “Barcelona” played the 11th round without defeat (15 matches in all tournaments), of which the last five victories – 53 units.

Real Madrid are preparing for the trip to Morocco after being left with 45 after failing by the narrowest of margins just hours before.

Until Alba went clean, Bono goalkeeper Yasin Bunu was in fine form with several first-half saves to keep out goals from star player Robert Lewandowski.

Barca’s victory was only shadowed when captain Sergio Busquets had to be replaced by Cassie with a left ankle injury before eight minutes had gone by.

Sevilla snapped a streak of several victories and remained in 16th place with 21 points. The Andalusian side have gone 20 visits to Camp Nou without celebrating a win, suffering 17 defeats and just three draws.

Madrid lost in Mallorca

Full of excitement, Real Madrid will prepare their bags for the Club World Cup.

The Meringue lost 1-0 to Mallorca, which saw them drop out of the race for the top spot, combined with Barcelona’s win.

Defender Nacho Fernandez was unlucky when he headed a header into his own net in the 13th minute.

Marco Asensio rejected the option of a draw. He missed a penalty in the 59th when Predrag Rajkovic saved him.

“It was a very difficult match. They worked well, but we did not. It’s a shame,” Nacho said. “It was difficult because of the time, because of the opponent. Everything becomes difficult when they are ahead. They were lucky in the goal. We also missed the penalty.”

The bad news for the Meringue started even before the game when goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois was taken off the field due to discomfort during the warm-up.

The loss of the French goalkeeper was compounded by the absence of other players such as Brazil’s Eder Militao and France’s Karim Benzema due to physical problems.

Mallorca picked up their fifth home win 1-0 in that time, taking 28 points and starting in 10th place.

The merengue will now travel to Morocco to face Egypt’s Al Ahly in the semi-finals of the Club World Cup on Wednesday.

When he resumes La Liga action against Elche, he will do so without Vinicius Junior, who picked up his fifth yellow card during the first half.

Real Sociedad will lose at home

Real Sociedad snapped a seven-game losing streak with a 1-0 defeat at home to Valladolid in which Canadian Cyle Larin scored again.

The San Sebastian team did not take advantage of the Merengue disaster and remained in 3rd place with 39 units. Valladolid is in 13th place with 23 points.

Larin has spent his days scoring goals with the team he joined at the end of January as a winter signing from Belgium.

In another result, “Girona” beat “Valencia” at home with a score of 1:0. The Orange team were 16th – one place above the relegation zone – with 20 points after their fifth defeat in their last six matches.
