It isn’t so much a question of if, but rather of when.

FC Barcelona is in full control of its own destiny and can mathematically clinch the La Liga title on Sunday night with a win or draw at 18th-place Deportivo. That's all it will take for Barça to secure its 7th La Liga crown in the last 10 seasons and firmly establish this era as one of the great dynasties of all-time.
