Barcelona look to clinch La Liga title

Barcelona

Bengaluru, April 27: Barcelona's 2-0 away victory at Alaves means Ernesto Valverde's side can confirm a 26th La Liga crown should they defeat Levante on home turf.

If they do, blaugrana talisman and top scorer Lionel Messi is primed to lift the trophy in his first season as club captain.

Camp Nou visitors Levante will, however, be boosted by a 4-0 midweek win over Real Betis which lifted them three points clear of the relegation zone,.

The Valencia-based side too has a good record, having defeated Barcelona in the Copa del Rey earlier this year, and 5-4 in La Liga late last season.
