Shades of the 1992 LaLiga title

Shades of the 1992 LaLiga title

The current situation in the Primera División is reminiscent of another gripping campaign 29 years ago, in which Barça were crowned champions

LaLiga is on course for a spectacular finale to the 2020/21 season. With just four games remaining, four teams have the chance to lift the title, with Barça in third place. The situation has echoes of the 1991/92 season, 29 years ago.

Shades of 1992

In that 1991/92 campaign, FC Barcelona -with current coach Ronald Koeman part of the squad- ended Matchday 34 on 47 points (during the period of 2 points for a win). They were just 2 points behind the leaders, Real Madrid, with Atletico Madrid second on 48.

Barça would end up being crowned champions in a nervy finale to the campaign, as Real Madrid lost to Tenerife and they took a win over Athletic Club at the Camp Nou on the final matchday. The club had double cause for celebration, having recently lifted the European Cup at Wembley.

Going further back in history, in 1952/53 Barça were 2 points behind leaders Valencia with four games remaining, and also won the title. 

The current campaign

Atletico Madrid (76 points), Real Madrid (74), FC Barcelona (74) and Sevilla (70) are separated by just 6 points, heading into a key weekend for the LaLiga season.

Two fixtures see all four teams involved in head-to-head fixtures: On Saturday at 4:15pm CEST, Barça host Atletico Madrid at the Camp Nou. On Sunday, at 9pm CEST, Real Madrid are at home to Sevilla at Valdebebas.

FC Barcelona will need to win all of their games and hope for a Real Madrid slip-up in one of the remaining contests, in order to be crowned Champions.
