Barça are mathematically champions of the OK League after the victory achieved this Saturday in Mataró. The team, which depended on itself after 26 games without losing, did its homework.
That ensured they were then able to celebrate the eighth consecutive OK League with the fans present at the Palau, to whom they dedicated the title in a season that has mostly been played behind closed doors.
This milestone comes two days before the end of the competition and after having fought hard throughout the season to get to the top of the table with a certain advantage. It should be remembered that the team was five points below Liceo and that, at the end of the first round, the margin was three points. The second round from Barça was impeccable and marked by the great victory in Riazor (3-7), which helped the Catalans to become the outright leader.
Since day 18, the team has won every game apart from the draw at Reus. In the next few days, the champions will visit Mataró (May 22) and host Voltregà (May 29) with the aim of reaching a spectacular figure of 83 points.
The OK League won this Saturday is the 32nd in a section that has 128 titles in its history. Of these, Captain Aitor Egurrola has been present in more than half (76). ‘El pop’ is the athlete with the most domestic competitions (21), followed by Sergi Panadero (16).
They are followed by Pablo Álvarez and Sergi Fernández (9), Matias Pascual (7 and one more with Liceo), Pau Bargalló (5), Ignacio Alabart (4), Nil Roca and Joao Rodrigues (3) and Helder Nunes (2). This fourth OK League with Edu Castro at the helm is also the first for Sergi Llorca as a player in the first team.
