Roger Bogunyà

The league title 2010/11 has produced some memorable moments. As it’s the 21st title the club has won, we have picked out 21 of the finest.

21 moments of the 21st league

1) Saint Valdés. G1. Racing v FCB (0-3). With Barça 2-0 up, Valdés saved a Tchité penalty to stop the opposition getting back in the match

2) Sad debut for Mascherano. G2. FCB v Hercules (0-2). Newly promoted Hercules shocked the Camp Nou by winning thanks to goals from Valdez on Mascherano’s debut.

4) Villa against his old club. G4. FCB V Sporting (1-0). One goal from the Asturian means Barça get an narrow win at the Camp Nou.

5) Comeback against leader. G7. FCB V Valencia (2-1). Goals from Iniesta and Puyol in the second half cancel out Pablo’s effort to defeat the league leaders.

6) First full house. G9. FCB V Sevilla (5-0). Two from Messi, two from Villa and one from Alves mean the fans enjoyed the first of many five-goal sprees.

7) Record away win. G12. Almeria v FCB (0-8). The 8-0 win at Almeria, in which Fontàs made his debut, meant Barça equalled their own record set when they won 8-0 in Las Palmas in the 1959/60 season.

8) Happy 111th birthday! G13. FCB v Madrid (5-0). Xavi, Pedro, Villa (2) and Jeffren scored in a famous drubbing of the old enemy. The game played on a Monday night was the perfect celebration of the club’s 111th birthday.

9) Lightning journey to win. G14. Osasuna v FCB (0-3). Due to the air traffic control strike, Barça improvised a last-minute race to Pamplona by bus and train, and still came back with a win.
