In the La Liga, Barcelona have competed with fierce rivals Real Madrid for years, each club winning the most La Liga titles in history. With Real Madrid having 35 La Liga titles in their belt with their recent victory coming in the 2021/22 season, Barcelona can only desire to catch up and will look to win their 27th La Liga title in the 2022/23 season. With that being said, here are Barcelona’s chances of winning the La Liga this season.
The 2021/22 season was basically forgettable for Barcelona. They failed to win any trophies and placed second in La Liga, 13 points behind Real Madrid, the league’s champion. They fired manager Ronald Koeman midway through the season and brought in Xavi Hernandez, another ex-player, who helped them move up to second place in the standings. In preparing for the 2022/23 season, they went ahead to make various statement signings, with some coming at a huge fee even during one of their toughest times as a club. They were in a deep financial crisis.
However, they managed to sign already established world class striker Robert Lewandowski (who has already hit the ground running with 6 goals in 5 league games) from Bayern Munich, Raphinha from Leeds United, exciting centre back Jules Kounde from Sevilla, Franck Kessie from AC Milan, Hector Bellerin from Arsenal and Champions league winning defenders Andreas Christensen and Marcos Alonso from Chelsea. All these players bolstered their squad and increased their chances of winning the La Liga title.
With 13 points in 5 games they currently sit in second place on the table, just behind Real Madrid who have a perfect record, and have won all 15 points from 5 games. Barcelona is sure to give Real Madrid a proper run for their money, with statistics showing that they have a 39 percent chance of winning the league, behind Real Madrid with a 45 percent chance. It is now left to Barcelona to challenge Real Madrid all the way to the end of the season, as they are the only two clubs who provide a real test for themselves in the league.
