Barcelona's Victory Pushes Them Closer To LaLiga Title

By - - [ ]

Following their 2-0 victory over Alaves on Tuesday night, Barcelona now has one hand firmly on the LaLiga title.

With one eye on one week from now's Champions League semi-last against Liverpool, manager Ernesto Valverde picked a side with Lionel Messi, Jordi Alba, and Arthur among other standard starters on the bench.

After a troublesome first half, Barca ventured up rigging in the second and midfielder Carles Alena gave the Catalans the lead at Mendizorroza following 54 minutes.

Luiz Suarez included the second from the punishment spot after Tomas Pina's handball was spotted by VAR.

The success abandons them 12 points clear at the highest point of the table, with four recreations to play.

On the off chance that second-set Atletico Madrid loses at Valencia on Wednesday or against Real Valladolid on Saturday, Barcelona will secure their 26th alliance title before they face Levante that night.
