Barcelona seals 2nd place in Spain, Sorloth scores 4 as Villarreal draws with Real Madrid

Barcelona secures second place in Spanish league, Real Madrid draws. Cadiz relegated, Real Sociedad clinches Europa League spot. Xavi's future uncertain.

Barcelona achieved a resounding 3-0 victory over Rayo Vallecano, securing the coveted second place in the Spanish league. Meanwhile, Real Madrid faced an intense 4-4 draw against Villarreal, with Alexander Sorloth scoring all four goals for the hosts. With Cadiz's relegation confirmed after a goalless draw against Las Palmas, the final round of matches will lack the excitement of a relegation battle.

Real Sociedad clinched the last Europa League spot with a 2-0 win over Real Betis, who settled for a place in the Europa Conference League. Pedri and Robert Lewandowski shone for Barcelona, maintaining a four-point lead over Girona, who secured third place with a 3-1 victory against Valencia. Atletico Madrid faced a disappointing 4-1 defeat against Osasuna, settling for fourth place in the league.

Barcelona's victory secured them second place and a spot in the lucrative Spanish Super Cup in Saudi Arabia. Despite reports suggesting Xavi's potential dismissal, the coach remains focused on the team's performance. Madrid, Mallorca, and Athletic Bilbao will also feature in the Super Cup next season. Fans showed support for Xavi during the match against Rayo Vallecano, highlighting the coach's importance to the team.

Sorloth's impressive performance salvaged a draw for Villarreal against Real Madrid, who scored all their goals in the first half. Madrid, already crowned champions, fielded a reserve squad in preparation for the upcoming Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund. Cadiz's relegation marked the end of their top-flight journey, having spent 14 consecutive seasons in the lower divisions before their promotion in 2020.

Real Sociedad's victory over Betis secured them a spot in the Europa League, joining Athletic Bilbao in the competition. With Almeria and Granada already relegated, the final round of matches saw Mallorca draw against Almeria and Celta Vigo secure a 2-1 victory against Granada. The Spanish league season concluded with Barcelona celebrating their second-place finish and a ticket to the prestigious Spanish Super Cup.
