Dermot Corrigan of ESPN recently stated in his article discussing Barcelona's lead, "No team has not gone on to win the La Liga title having had such a lead at this point."
As sports fans will often agree, it is hard to argue with both statistics and history.
Not only is Barcelona undefeated and running away with the league, but history itself says the Catalans will win.
There is a reason that teams have never lost La Liga after being in this situation. If a team is good enough to put itself in a position such as this, there is no reason to believe that something will change in the second half of the season.
La Blaugrana have earned the position they are in and will not be willing to give it up so easily.
This may be the hungriest we have seen a Barcelona team in two years. Their fighting spirit has been hitting the ceiling since the season began and shows no signs of slowing down.
At this point, the only way Barcelona can lose La Liga is if they give it away.
The Catalan giants are their own enemies. The players must continue to show the same desire, passion and skill that got them to this point. If they see out the rest of the season the way the have until now, then it is absolutely certain La Blaugrana will be lifting the trophy in May.
Needless to say, 21 games are left in the season, and Barcelona already have firms hands around the trophy.
So has Barcelona already won La Liga? If not, who do you see taking first-place from them? Don't forget to comment below with your thoughts and arguments!
