Share With Friends:

Barcelona officially sealed another La Liga title at Camp Nou on Saturday night on 83 points, with three games to play, with Lionel Messi coming from bench to score the only goal in a 1-0 win over Levante.

Messi got his 34th league goal of the campaign, to put Barcelona on course for their 26th La Liga title and has now scored more goals (24) as a substitute in La Liga than any other player in the 21st century.

In a first for Spanish football, Barcelona were presented with the trophy on the pitch after the game. Historically, the ceremony has taken place at the start of the following season much to many supporters’ annoyance.

Apart from Messi, serial winners Luis Suarez, Gerard Pique and Jordi Alba have also impressed this season for Valverde’s side.

With league business sealed, Barça can now fully focus on winning the Champions League for the first time since 2015. The first leg of the semi-final on Wednesday is followed by a trip to Anfield on Tuesday 7 May.
