Barcelona defeat Deportivo 4-2 for La Liga championship

Jordi Alba says Madrid should give them the Guard of Honour.

Gerard Deulofeu was obviously pleased Barcelona secured the La Liga title over the weekend, but was also left somewhat irritated by the club's celebration t-shirts.

Depor were forced to push forward knowing only victory would be enough to keep their survival hopes alive and they paid the price as Messi added two late goals to complete the 46th hat-trick of his career.

"The Club World Cup was a competition we didn't play in, at the (Santiago) Bernabeu, in the league, we have previously performed a guard of honour". He can count four Champions League successes (2006, 2009, 2011 and 2015) in among the 32 - yes THIRTY-TWO - titles he has won at club level.

The Leo Messi-inspired Catalan giants sealed the Spanish title with a 4-2 win over Deportivo last night, condemning the hosts to relegation at the Riazor.

"We have been far superior to our rivals, we haven't lost a match during the whole season", Messi told Barcelona's in-house television channel.

Ernesto Valverde's men completed a league and cup double after thrashing Sevilla 5-0 in last week's Copa del Rey final, regaining the Spanish crown from Real Madrid and relegating Deportivo in the process.

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".

It will wound Real to see Barca pick up the trophy after the game in Catalonia, and it will sting further that they have done so with such ease, now 15 points ahead.

"It's been an nearly flawless season for us in the league", midfielder Sergio Busquets said.

Could a charging Valencia side underline their title credentials with a victory against mighty Barcelona at The Mestalla?

"It's terribly hard to think of all the tests we have to go through, to do it with four games going is a great achievement".

No extra motivation will be required for Zinedine Zidane's squad given the rivalry and Real will be in buoyant mood if they finish off - as expected - a depleted Bayern Munich in the second leg of their Champions League semifinal Tuesday.

Messi then struck twice in the final 10 minutes to seal the win.
