Barcelona are celebrating the 24th La Liga title in their history after a routine victory over Granada on the final day of the season.

They finish the season on 91 points, just one ahead of their arch-rivals. Just a few weeks ago, Real Madrid were 12 points behind the Catalan giants but the thought of losing their title to Los Blancos was enough to inspire Luis Enrique's men to six straight victories.

Luis Suarez also sealed the Pichici Trophy, finishing the campaign in style by grabbing all three goals in the 3-0 win. The hat-trick sees him finish on 40 league goals, five ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored twice in Real Madrid's win over Deportivo.
