Match 37th round of the Spanish football league FC Barcelona – Mallorca, May 28, 2023. Barcelona footballers are happy to win the title.
Madrid – San Sebastian footballers will join Barcelona, Real Madrid and Atlético Madrid in the Champions League from Spain's highest competition. In the penultimate round of 37, they lost 1:2 against third-placed Atlético, but fifth-placed Villarreal lost to Vallecano and, together with Betis, Sevilla will play in the Europa League.
Barcelona won for the first time since winning the Champions Cup and two defeats, a 3-0 win over Mallorca thanks to talented players Ansu Fati and Gavi. After a 2-2 draw with Valencia, Español Barcelona returns to the second division after two years. Six teams will fight to stay in La Liga in the last round – Getafe, Cádiz, Valencia, Almeria, Celta Vigo and Valladolid are separated by two points. One of these teams will join Elche and Espanyol, replacing Granada and Las Palmas.
Barcelona said goodbye to club legends Alba and Busquets, who played their last home league game against Mallorca, victorious. Fati opened the scoring after just 49 seconds, who shot into an empty net after a pass from Gavi. The 20-year-old Spaniard added the second goal after 2 minutes, then confirmed the win for Gavi in the second half.
Despite the defeat at Atlético Madrid, San Sebastian will play in the Champions League group stage. Griezmann was involved in both goals for the home side, first he made his own in the first half and after the change of sides he set up the goal for Molina. The French striker is having his best season and with 15 goals and 14 assists he is the second most productive player in the league. In the end, Sörloth only corrected the score.
San Sebastian's progress to the Champions League could only be threatened by Villarreal, who lost to Vallecano 1:2. The guests only had time to respond to the goals of De Tomás and Palazón by reducing after Lo Celsa's header.
Espanyol cherished the chance of a rescue until the very end of the game against Valencia, as the penultimate team led 2-1 at Valencia after goals from Montes and Braithwaite. However, in the third minute of regulation, Lino surprisingly simply went through the visitors' defense and condemned the opponent to relegation.
