Barcelona had the opportunity to achieve for the first time in history an undefeated title. The achievement in this way was prevented in the penultimate round. Faced with little Levante, the Catalan team was defeated by 5 to 4.
He got to lose by 5 to 1. Got a reaction making his fourth goal in the 26 minutes of the final stage. He pressed until the last second, but did not get the tie that would allow him to reach the unbeaten title unbeaten.
This will certainly take some of the fun out of the celebration, although Barcelona have performed well in LaLiga. He has accumulated 90 points (27 wins, nine draws and one loss).
But it will not be the only shock at the party. The melancholy must take over the stadium when midfielder Andres Iniesta (29 games in the Spanish 2017/2018 Championship, a goal) leave the pitch. It will be the last match in which one of the biggest stars in the history of the club will wear the Barça shirt.
Limited by physical conditioning, the athlete of 34 years decided to follow other directions. Even because each season was less used. To avoid having to face Barcelona, he has signed a contract with a Japanese team, where he must end his career.
To complete the discouraging scenario, players will not be at their best. On Wednesday, May 16, they played a friendly against Mamelodi Sundows of South Africa in a tribute to the recently killed leader Nelson Mandela. Barca won by 3 to 1 and coach Ernesto Valverde made many changes to avoid excessive wear.
For the duel of this Sunday, he has limitations to define the escalation. Defender Samuel Umtiti (25 games, one goal), Thomas Vermaelen (14 matches, no goal) and Aleix Vidal (15 matches, one goal) are injured; and midfielder José Manuel Diaz (a game, no goal). The list of defaults is completed by midfielder Sergi Roberto (30 games, one goal), suspended.
The Real Sociedad only complies table in the match of this Sunday. With 49 points (14 wins, seven draws and 16 losses) he was tenth at the end of the thirty-seventh round. You can even go up one or two posts or even lose one or two positions. Nothing that will make much difference. It has no chance of winning a place in European competition nor is it threatened with relegation.
Even if he needed the result, the fans would not have much hope. After all, in addition to facing the champion Barcelona, the team made a disastrous campaign as a visitor. It was the sixth worst in this issue in LaLiga. He only had 16 points (four wins, four draws and ten losses) in that situation.
For the farewell match, the coach Imanol Alguacil should not count on all his squad. They are given to the care of the medical department and depend on new examinations to know if they can be available defender Aritz Elustondo (18 games in the 2017/2018 Spanish Championship, three goals); the socks Jon Guridi (four games, no goal) and Igor Zubeldia (25 games, one goal); and striker Imanol Agirretxe (11 matches, no goal).
