Barcelona wins La Liga title

Barcelona has claimed its 24th La Liga title thanks to a 3-0 win over Granada at Los Carmenes.

Barcelona has won La Liga after a comfortable 3-0 win over Granada on Saturday.

The defending champion made light work of the home side at Los Carmenes thanks to a hat trick from Luis Suarez, who claims the Pichichi prize for top scorer after finishing on 40 for the season.

Suarez struck twice in the first half against a Granada side which had little to play for, after it secured survival with a 4-1 win over Sevilla last week.

Barca ends the campaign with 91 points, just one ahead of fierce rival Real Madrid, which won 2-0 at Deportivo La Coruna. Atletico Madrid's challenge ended last week when it was beaten 2-1 by Levante.

Barca's triumph is its sixth in the last eight seasons and its 24th overall, leaving the club eight behind the record tally held by Madrid.

It now turns its attention to the Copa del Rey final with Sevilla at the Vicente Calderon next Sunday.
