Players and fans join Barca league title celebrations
Barcelona celebrated their 25th La Liga title from an open top bus which drove through their adoring fans in the Catalan capital on Monday (April 30).
Lionel Messi scored a hat-trick on Sunday (April 29) winning 4-2 at Deportivo La Coruna despite throwing away a two-goal lead in a thrilling game which also confirmed Depor’s relegation.
Messi claimed his 32nd league goal of the season with the help of another pass from Suarez to round off the victory and give Barca a seventh Liga title in 10 years, completing a fourth domestic double in that same period after beating Sevilla 5-0 in the King’s Cup final last week.
Valverde’s unbeaten side have 86 points after 34 games, second-placed Atletico have 75 from 35 and third-placed Real Madrid 71 from 35.
