Press reaction to FC Barcelona's sixth league title in eight years

Press reaction
Local and international press hail unprecedented run of titles with special praise for leading scorer Luis Suárez

FC Barcelona have won their 24th league title in Club history and their second consecutive in the Luis Enrique era. If you were to look up the definition of the word ‘dynasty’, you would find a short first entry — 1. Futbol Club Barcelona.

The Catalans’ sixth league title in the last eight seasons is an unprecedented feat in Europe’s top domestic leagues.

Saturday’s clincher, a 3–0 victory at Granada, came thanks to a hat-trick from Luis Suárez, this season’s top goal scorer in Spain and, in fact, in all of Europe.

It’s no surprise, then, that the press has dedicated plenty of headline ink to the blaugrana juggernaut.
