The Barcelona close LaLiga with a third place that could win a place in the 'Top 5' of his worst classifications in what it goes of competitions futbolísticas this century
In the 22 Leagues that mse have contested in what it goes of this century, from the season 1999-2000 until the 2020-21, the Barça has remained always between the two first in 17 editions, with 10 titles and 7 subcampeonatos. The third place consummated with the 0-1 in Eibar goes in therefore in the 'Top 5' of the a lot of falls that carries in club in recent dates.
The worst classification was the sixth place in the course 2002-03, followed of two fourth positions in the Leagues 2000-01and 2001-02. Said third seat is quite similar to the of the season 2007-08, the one of the "autocomplacencia" reported by Joan Laporta and that it was the end of cycle of the stage of Frank Rikaard in the bench and of Ronaldinho in the lawn.
The president himself of the club, Joan Laporta, already has spoken of "end of cycle" now and of the start of "a process of renewal". Since, with the arrival of Pep Guardiola to the bench of the Barcelona, until this third position disappeared of the memory, all were first or second places.
The team of Ronald Koeman has the honour to having been the maximum goleador of the League with 85 so many. In addition to having achieved 18 goals more than the Athletic, the one who now is the champion, and that the Real Madrid, second in the table, the two with 67. Although the blaugranas were the team with but goals, one of the problems recognised by the own Koeman has been the fault of effectiveness in transcendental parties in which they lost points. Like the last that contested .
No only in the direct pulses in front of the merengues and the colchoneros, but in crashes in front of rivals more affordable like Alavés, Cádiz, Eibar, Granada or Celtic. The Barcelona drama also has been defensive, with ten more fit goals (38) that the Real Madrid (28) and thirteen more than the Athletic (25).
Drop of intensity at the end
The Barça finish the League with 79 points and a total of 24 victories, seven ties and seven defeats. At the end it remained to seven points of the champion (86 of the Athletic of Madrid) after going down the arms of surprising form in the last days, with defeats in the Camp Nou in front of Granada (1-2) and Celtic (1-2) and a tie in front of the Raise (3-3) when said appointments represented an opportunity to snatch him the leadership to the rojiblancos.
If in place of a point, had added to his account the 9 points that could have obtained to having won these three commitments would have finished with 87 points and would have carried the trophy of this year to the Camp Nou the 'goal average' lost in front of the squares of Diego Simeone and Zinedine Zidane.
