They did it! Congratulations to Barcelona, who were crowned La Liga champions after defeating Granada 3-0 on May, 14. Lionel Messi and co. really deserved after such a hard-fought season, and look at what it means to them! Watch their celebrations after the game here!
And they won it in style! Barcelona fought off the challenge of Cristiano Ronaldo‘s Real Madrid by beating Granada 3-0 on the final day of the La Liga season to clinch their 24th championship over their great rivals. The amazing achievement was celebrated by their Lionel Messi, 28, Neymar, 24, and Gerard Pique, 29, who all did a little jig of delight in the dressing room after the full-time whistle! Well done, guys!
Barcelona, who were only 1 point ahead of their bitter rivals Real Madrid going into the last game of La Liga, needed to win against Granada to ensure they were champions. If they didn’t, and Real won (which they did in the end) then Los Blancos would’ve been the champions instead. But Barcelona’s players did their in emphatic style!
Much of the success has been down to their wonderful attacking trio of the best player in the world, Lionel, the famed biter and goal-scorer extraordinaire Luis Suarez, and Brazilian hotshot Neymar. It was Luis that took the top honors, scoring a hat-trick against Granada to ease fears of an upset. His three goals took him to 40 goals for the season, which meant he beat Lionel and Cristiano to top scorer in La Liga.
It’s another remarkable achievement by the Catalans, who have won the last two championships in Spain, which is bittersweet to retain your title after being the best team in the land again! Things looked a little dicey when they lost three La Liga games in a row back in April, but they bounced back and held off their challengers.
