It all began at El Molinon

El Molinon saw Barša win one of their most famous league titles in 1974 and more than 30 years later was again the scene of an important win for Barša as they won their first league game of the fantastic 2008-09 season.

Gijˇn holds many happy memories for Barša fans: it was there that Johan Cruyff’s fantastic 73-74 side claimed their league title with a 2-4 win and was also the starting point for last season’s triple winning campaign.

It had been a shaky beginning under new boss Pep Guardiola, with just 1 point from their first 2 games, but that all changed at the Molinon, where the team thrashed Sporting 1-6 and began an amazing run that took them to the title.

19 wins and 2 draws

Alongside the Spanish Cup and the Champions League, the La Liga title made it a historic season for Barcelona and it all started to go right for them at El Molinon.
