It wasn’t anything close to a vintage performance but Barcelona eventually overcame Deportivo La Coruna and secured the La Liga title for the 25th time. It is the 9th La Liga win for Barcelona in the last 14 seasons and the 7th in the last 10.

Barcelona Glory

A Lionel Messi-inspired 4-2 victory at Deportivo La Coruna on Sunday sealed a seventh La Liga crown in 10 seasons after giving the Catalan giants an unassailable 11-point lead over second-placed Atletico Madrid with three games to go.

Barcelona had taken a two-goal lead only to have relegation-threatened Deportivo battle back to level the score with a quarter of the game still to go. However, Lionel Messi completed a hat-trick with two late goals and that gave Barcelona a 4-2 win.

It has been an outstanding domestic campaign for double-winning Barca. However, there is still a sense that the season is a missed opportunity after the Champions League last-eight exit against Roma when Barca squandered a 4-1 first-leg advantage.

Barcelona is now unbeaten in 41 league matches (7 from 2016/17), and are now just four games from going unbeaten the entire season. No other Spanish team has achieved the feat since Real Madrid did it in 1932 but back then the league consisted of just ten teams and 18 games.
