Barcelona retained La Liga on Saturday and claimed the 24th league title in their history with a dominant win over Granada on Saturday.
Luis Suarez scored a hat-trick as Luis Enrique’s side made easy work of their struggling opposition away from home.
Barca needed to win to secure the league title with Real Madrid, one point behind, securing a comfortable victory over Deportivo La Coruna.
For 22 minutes Real Madrid were winning La Liga but in the end Cristiano Ronaldo’s 50th goal of the season was not enough, neither was his 51st. Luis Suarez had scored more, Barcelona had picked up more points, and Real Madrid’s spectacular comeback had just fallen short.
They were 13 points behind Barca two months ago. With an incredible run of 12 straight victories they had made the Champions sweat for their 24th title. They had made their supporters panic too, above all on minute seven of this game when Ronaldo opened the scoring in Riazor.
