Barcelona claimed the league title with three games to go thanks to their 4-2 win in La Coruna: Leo Messi scored a hat-trick to seal the win, including two goals in the 82nd and 88th minute when Deportivo had been threatening to pull off a fight back.

Fans filled the streets of Barcelona as Lionel Messi and his team-mates celebrated their LaLiga and Copa del Rey triumphs on Monday.

Briefly, it looked like Deportivo would become the first team to beat Barca in the league this season.

Suarez struck twice to set Barca on course for the win and Messi's free-kick made the result safe five minutes from time, as the visitors moved 19 points ahead of Real Madrid and nine clear of second-placed Atletico Madrid.

Barca had gone into the 35th round of play in the Spanish season with an 11 point lead over Atletico Madrid and with four games to play, as well as superior head to head and overall goal difference.

"I'm very happy, we feel so much joy after winning this league", the Argentine told Barcelona's television channel.

"We lost just one in the Cup and disappointingly another in the Champions League", added Messi, who leads the La Liga scoring charts with 32 goals this term.

"Barca have had a great year, they have won two titles; winning the cup has merit and the league even more", said Ramos at his pre-match press conference, according to Marca. Valverde deserves this more than anyone. The current style of play isn't almost as lovely as what we're used to, but it's just as effective in getting results.

Following Barcelona's win at Estadio Riazor, Barcelona players wore the shirt of players who contributed to this season's league success.

It is a staggering turnaround from the start of the season when Camp Nou was filled with despair, dissent and a campaign to oust club president Josep Maria Bartomeu, who on Sunday boasted of "the seventh [Primera] Liga title in 10 years". "We had some tough moments and we overcame them without losing and that's incredible".
