After a very poor and titleless 2021-22 season, football club Barcelona is currently on a high. Xavi’s team, which has gone through various ups and downs since the start of the season, is currently in good form.

Barcelona has been very strong in every competition except the Champions League. The Catalan club is currently at the top of the Spanish La Liga table. With 44 points from 17 games this season, Barcelona is 3 points ahead of second-placed Real Madrid.

Barcelona and Manchester United will meet in the knockout stages of the Europa League, while the Blaugrana club has already entered the semi-finals of the Copa del Rey. Similarly, Xavi won the first title of his Barcelona career as a coach by defeating Real Madrid 3-1 in the final match only last week.

Every player at the club has generally performed well when they were given the opportunity. So, today we will learn about 3 reasons why Barcelona can win the La Liga title this season, beating arch-rivals Real Madrid.

3. Barcelona’s defense is in red-hot form

Jules Kounde, Ronald Araujo, Andreas Christensen, and Alex Balde; This defense line is currently one of the strongest defensive lines in Europe. This season, Barcelona’s defense has performed very well, at least in the league, even in the absence of key players. Barcelona has conceded only 6 goals in 17 league games this season and managed to keep 13 clean sheets.

2. Hunger of Barcelona players for titles

With an excellent mix of experience and youth at present, Barcelona’s appetite for titles is high and last week’s Spanish Super Cup title added fuel to this. The club has not won a league title since 2028-19, which is a very long drought for a team like Barcelona which has always been winning title after title.

1. A strong and experienced forward line

Like the defense, Barcelona’s forward line has also been in good form this season. The Spanish giants have scored a total of 36 league goals this season, just two goals short of Real Madrid’s tally. Star striker Robert Lewandowski is currently the league’s top scorer with 13 goals, while Ousmane Dembele is third in the assist chart. He has a total of 5 league assists this season.
