Barcelona secured their 24th La Liga title with a 3-0 win over Granada on Saturday.

Luis Suarez wrapped up the Pichichi ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo by scoring a hat-trick at Los Cármenes - his 38th, 39th and 40th league goals of a remarkable campaign - but had Neymar to thank for his final goal.

The Brazilian, who has come in for some heavy criticism in recent weeks, laid the ball on a plate for Suarez to complete his treble in the 86th minute of the match.

A pitch invasion ensued moments after the full-time whistle, meaning Barcelona’s superstars couldn’t stay and celebrate their title win for too long.

Some of Barca’s players looked a little worried after being swarmed by so many fans and poor old Neymar suffered a blow to the face, judging by tunnel cam footage obtained by Mundo Deportivo (per 101 Great Goals).

The footage shows Neymar hunched over, with some of his concerned teammates checking to see if he was okay.

Rafinha then led Neymar towards the visitors’ dressing room and the latter was clearly in some discomfort, holding his mouth as he walked down the tunnel.

Neymar seemed fine afterwards

However, the South American didn’t appear to be too badly hurt.

He was filmed celebrating Barcelona’s title win in the dressing room and even found the energy to give Gerard Pique a cheeky kick.
