Barcelona didn't figure to be here. Although the expectation is to win La Liga every year, Real Madrid, theoretically, looked too good for Xavi's side, and were far and away favourites to win the 2022-23 title. But Barca were a revelation, at least domestically, and finished the season by hoisting the trophy after finishing 10 points clear of their arch-rivals.
It was very much a team effort, with Xavi dipping deep into his squad for a series of strong performers that amounted to their first league title in four years. But there were some star players, too, with the likes of Ronald Araujo, Frenkie de Jong, Robert Lewandowski and Marc-Andre ter Stegen proving crucial over the course of the season.
And although a few players seem poised to leave, the Blaugrana have enjoyed contributions from everywhere within their playing ranks.
