FC Barcelona roller hockey win their second straight league title on Saturday.

FC Barcelona's roller hockey team are champions for 26th time in their history. Another season culminated with success by being the best team over the course of the league season. With two games still to play in the league, Ricard Muñoz's squad were proclaimed this year's champions before even playing Saturday's match at Vic. Before the match, second-place Liceo fell to Reus, making Barça the mathematical champs. It is the 26th league title in team history and the second in a row. The Catalans became the first team to repeat since the playoffs were abolished.

With Liceo Reus losing 5–4 in a must-win game at Riazor, the match between FC Barcelona and Vic was a mere formality. Muñoz's men could have easily celebrated the title and brushed off the ensuing match, but they went out and defeated Vic thanks to Raül Marin's penalty shot and a pair of goals from Marc Torra.

Marín's penalty shot opened the scoring on seven minutes. Vic, led by Romà Bancells, found the equalizer, also from the penalty spot. But Torra responded with Barça's second, slipping one past Carles Grau.
