Barcelona win fifth Liga F title in a row, eye first quadruple

Barcelona wrapped up a fifth consecutive Liga F title on Saturday with four games to spare as they beat Granada 4-1 at the Estadio Nuevo Los Cármenes.

The victory meant Barça made it 76 points from a possible 78 this season, with their only dropped points coming in a draw against Levante earlier in the campaign.

Goals from Lucy Bronze, Caroline Graham Hansen and a double from Fridolina Rolfö led the reigning champions to another comfortable victory against Granada.

The Catalan club are aiming to win a quadruple for the first time in their history, going one better than the trebles they won in 2020, 2021, 2022 and 2023.

They lifted the Spanish Super Cup in January and after winning Liga F for the ninth time in the club's history, they have finals to come in both the Champions League and the Copa de la Reina this month.

After edging out Chelsea in the semifinal, Barça will face Lyon in the Champions League final in Bilbao on May 25 as they target back-to-back European titles and a third in four years.

However, they have never previously beaten Lyon in the competition. The French side beat them in the 2019 and 2022 finals.

Prior to that, they play Real Sociedad in the Copa de la Reina final in Zaragoza on May 18.

Barça's hopes of winning a quadruple last season were ended when they were kicked out of the Copa de la Reina for fielding an ineligible player. They did win Liga F, the Champions League and the Super Cup, though.

In 2021, it was the Super Cup which eluded them, while in 2020 and 2022 they came up short in the Champions League.

This will be coach Jonatan Giráldez's last in charge before he takes over at NWSL side Washington Spirit this summer.

Since replacing Lluís Cortés in 2021, Giráldez has overseen three league titles, during which time Barça have lost just one match, and led them to three Champions League finals.

They were beaten by Lyon in 2022 but came from two goals down to beat Wolfsburg 3-2 in last year's showpiece.

In total, Barça have so far won eight of a possible 10 trophies under Giráldez, with two more up for grabs this month.
