Barcelona clinches another La Liga title behind Lionel Messi's hat trick

Real Madrid News Neymar ‘sends message’ to Cristiano Ronaldo amid transfer fear

The former Athletic Bilbao coach said: "I have not invented anything, in the end these players have already won titles and leagues with other coaches". Forgetting him from the list of players probably isn't the best way to go about that.

"We feel so much joy after winning this league", the Argentine told Barcelona's TV channel.

In March 2017, Barcelona lost to Deportivo la Coruna, effectively ending their title bid last season.

Barcelona have now incredibly finished top in seven of the past 10 La Liga seasons, while Deportivo have been relegated to the Segunda Division following today's result.

Even though they got eliminated from the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League to AS Roma, Barcelona have finally returned to winning ways and will be looking to carry this momentum forward into next season.

Barcelona's next goal is to try to finish the league unbeaten, something which has never happened in the competition's current format. "He has managed the dressing room perfectly", he said.

"I'm very happy", he said. He also played a key part in Spain winning the 2008 and 2012 European Championships to complete an unprecedented run of dominance for Spain and its tiki-taka tactics modeled on Barcelona's ball-possession style.

Once again, the future champions pulled their fat out of the fire, Jordi Alba providing the assist for Lionel Messi to equalise in the final 10 minutes - an all-too familiar combination that would extend throughout the season.

Messi put Barcelona ahead in the 82nd minute from close range after exchanging passes with Suarez inside the area, then sealed the victory in a breakaway in the 85th.

Messi has 32 league goals, leaving him with eight more than Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo in the race for top scorer.

There were contrasting emotions at the end of the match, with Barca's on-pitch celebrations a touch muted perhaps in respect for their opponents, for whom the defeat confirmed relegation.

Asked at the pregame news conference whether a Champions League or domestic double was more worthy, the veteran defender knew exactly what his questioner was getting at.

"It seems easy that we could win three in a row, that motivates us in the day to day to keep breaking records".
