Barcelona‘s social media went into overdrive on Monday evening as Blaugrana celebrated this season’s double success with an open top bus parade through the heart of Catalonia in front of thousands of fans.
And as Barca take a dip in glory, we take a look at some of the best Tweets – with departing club legend Andres Iniesta, deservedly so, receiving plenty of plaudits whilst he enjoyed celebrations on the bus.
Barcelona have won a record-extending eighth Spanish double.
Barcelona completed yet another domestic double after securing the La Liga title on Sunday, one week after winning the Copa del Rey.
This season marks the eighth time La Blaugrana have achieved the feat, and of course, twice in recent history they’ve added the Champions League to their haul to achieve a treble.
While they won’t do that this season, Barca have cemented their status as kings of the double. In contrast, for example, Real Madrid have only done the Spanish double four times, and their last was in 1989 – though they did pull off a league-and-Champions League double in 2017.
The team that comes closest to Barcelona is Athletic Bilbao, who have done the domestic double five times.
Have a closer look at the Catalans’ remarkable record in the video below:
