Barcelona apparently secured the championship tonight (Sunday), and did it in the sweetest way possible, with a 1:2 over Real Madrid at the Camp Nou in a dramatic, nerve-wracking and wonderful Clasico.

The gap at the top grew to 12 points, 12 cycles to the end of the season, and from here it is hard to imagine how the Blancos come back.

Ronald Araujo scored an own goal (9), but this season's Barcelona is very difficult to break.

Sergi Roberto made sure to equalize (45), then, in extra time, Frank Casilla made sure to complete the turnaround.

The two bitter rivals will meet once again on April 5, after the international break, in the second leg of the Spanish Cup semi-final (0:1 to Barcelona in the first leg).

Xavi, who became the first Barcelona coach since Pep Guardiola in 2011 to beat Real Madrid three times in one year, concluded by saying: "It's a deserved win. I'm satisfied, because we beat a great team. We had more chances, we controlled more, we were superior. Until the last moment I debated whether to start with Sergi Roberto or Casilla, and in the end it turned out well - both scored. I don't know what to say about Sergi. If he was in another team, he would probably be the most celebrated player, and here he is criticized. He It was wonderful in every way."

The winning coach added: "We only lost ten points this season in the league, we hardly talk about it. The dressing room here is like a family, we do a great job and I am very proud. This is one of my happiest days as Barcelona coach, I had chills, especially when Cassia scored" .

When asked about Carlo Ancelotti's criticism of the refereeing, and the decision not to confirm Marco Asensio's goal due to a difference, Xavi said: "It was completely clear, it's a fact, there's no debate here. A difference is clear. I'm surprised that Ancelotti said What he said."


"There are still many games, and you can never eulogize Real Madrid, but this victory is very important if we want to win the championship," Sergi Roberto concluded, but made sure to add: "The league depends solely on us. We will have to be very bad to lose it. It's like a party - everyone is happy. I'm happy for the goal and the win. I'm happy to continue playing at this club, the club of my life. Xavi gives me confidence, and the best way to repay him is to play well. Whether I play a lot or not , I always give my all."

Frankie de Jong added: "I'm a better player since I arrived here. Am I the best midfielder in the world? I don't know."

When asked if he intends to join Manchester United this summer, he said: "No, I don't think so. You never know, but I'm very good at Barcelona."
