Barcelona clinch 25th LaLiga title with 4-2 victory over Deportivo


Lionel Messi netted a hat-trick, as Barcelona defeated Deportivo La Coruna 4-2 on Sunday night, to be crowned champions of Spain.

The Catalans came into the game knowing that a draw will guarantee their 25th LaLiga title, regardless of the result in the earlier match between Alaves and Atletico Madrid.

And they took the lead as early as the 7th minute through Philippe Coutinho. Messi grabbed his first of the night six minutes before the break.

Lucas Perez and Emre Colak struck either side of the break to level the match at 2-2.

However, it was Messi who had the final say, completing his hat-trick within three minutes, to ensure Barcelona finish this campaign with a domestic double.
