Barcelona took their advantage in the Spanish league

Barcelona took their advantage in the Spanish league to eight points after yet another victory.

This time it was a 4-0 thrashing of Eibar away from home. This means that the club has now won all their league matches since the draw against Espanyol at the start of 2016. This coupled with rivals like Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid dropping points consistently means that Barcelona can seal a second successive title much earlier than expected. There are still 10 games left in the Spanish league and if the Catalan club continue at this rate, they can seal the title with three games left.

Defender Gerard Pique, though, appears to be more impatient since he wants the title to be decided as soon as possible. This would help . The club are aiming to become the first team to defend the Champions League. Despite the competition having more than two decades of history, no team has achieved this feat. This is due to a combination of strong opposition coupled with bad luck. The former is unlikely to pose much trouble to Barcelona since they appear to have regained their former strength. The club are certain to progress into the last eight of the Champions League after a 2-0 win over Arsenal in the first leg at the Emirates.

"Our objective is to finish the league as soon as we can, the situation is good and we have to continue in this line.We don't rule out any team that mathematically can win the league, we know that there are two and a half months of competition left and that we're in a good position, but it's not over," said the defender. The 29-year-old has had a stop and start season and has made only 21 league appearances so far.
