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.
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.
