Barcelona secured the 2013 La Liga title tonight as they "sat on the couch" at home and watched Espnayol draw Real Madrid at the Estadi Cornellà-El Prat. Madrid's draw means than even if Barcelona lose tomorrow against Atletico Madrid, they will still hold an seven-point lead over Madrid with Los Merengues only having six points available for them to earn this season.
Translation: It's over.
This is the 22nd La Liga title in club history and the fourth title in the last five seasons. It's also the first for head coach Tito Vilanova as he recovers the title lost to Real Madrid last season.
It's been a tumultuous season at the Camp Nou with Barcelona struggling with injuries, defensive problems and the health of Vilanova, who missed time in the middle of the season as he dealt with a recurrence of cancer in his throat.
Despite all the obstacles Barcelona were able to pull out to a sizable lead in the league by January and ride the wave through the spring to the title.
