Barcelona came from behind to beat Eibar 4-2 at Camp Nou, but their win and total of 90 points were not enough to give them the La Liga title, which returned to Real Madrid after five years. What exactly went wrong with Barcelona this season?
We haven’t been consistent enough to win La Liga, especially in our home matches, and in the end we have paid the price
Luis Enrique said in the Press conference after the match. The ‘Blaugrana’ dropped a total of nine points at home this season, from September to December, and those points ended up hurting them badly.
I think the team has done a lot of good throughout the season but unfortunately the line between defeat and victory is very marginal. I wish we could keep winning title after title but now we have rivals who want the same things and have reached our level
the Barcelona coach went on. As for Real Madrid and how rightful new champions they are, Enrique avoided paying them a… special compliment, but admitted, in his own way, that the ‘Blancos’ deserve the title.
When you win La Liga, you are the right winner. We know where we have failed, but that is top competition
the Spanish coach said. Barcelona are facing Alaves in the Cup final later this next weekend, in their only chance to win a title this season.
