La Liga

Why Barcelona will finish second in la Liga table this season.

After taking over as Barcelona manager in November 2021, Xavi has tried to bring back Barcelona into their usual performance. As compared to the 2020/2021 season where Barcelona had only 8 points from starting 6 matches, this season was different where they had 12 points from six games under Xavi as manager.

Now that Barca is standing at position three in the La Liga table three points behind Sevilla they are likely to finish in the second position in the La Liga table. Despite 9 games remaining to wind up the season, Barcelona are remaining with less compelling matches over their close opponent Sevilla. They will only face Sevilla and Villareal which seem to be crucial games while Sevilla will face Atletico Madrid, Villareal, Real Madrid, and Barcelona. therefore Xavi Hernandes is likely to end up in the second position in the La Liga top tier.

After the signing of Arsenal striker Pierre Emerick Aubamayang on a free transfer deal, Barca's striking confidence and ability to score have steadily improved. The striker from Gabon has scored 7 goals in 10 matches which is a great performance.

Therefore due to the remaining compelling matches for Sevilla and signing Aubamayang at right time, Barcelona will finish in second position in the La Liga table this season.
