    Champions! Messi seals another title

    Barca captain Lionel Messi fittingly sealed Barcelona's 26th La Liga title on Saturday by coming off the bench to score the goal in a 1-0 win over Levante in front of a jubilant Nou Camp crowd, who celebrated a remarkable eighth league crown in 11 years.



    Barca's captain decided the game and the title in the 61st minute as he received a header from Arturo Vidal, effortlessly freeing himself from two defenders with his right foot before using his left to plant the ball into the far bottom corner.

    Cries of "champions" rang out from the 91,000 supporters crammed into the Nou Camp but Barca's players dropped their concentration and Jose Luis Morales should have levelled for the visitors but blasted over the bar.

    Levante also hit the post in the final stages as Barca were left clinging on to their narrow advantage deep into stoppage-time but relief came when they cleared a corner and the final whistle sounded.

    Barca lead the standings on 83 points after 35 games, an unassailable nine clear of second-placed Atletico Madrid with three matches left because they have a superior head-to-head record with Atleti this season.

    Ernesto Valverde's side have now taken the first step in their bid to win a third treble in a decade.

    They face Liverpool in the Champions League semi-finals and will play Valencia in the Copa del Rey final on May 25.

    We turned La Liga into a farmers league. Hope that we overtake Real for championship titles in the next decade.

    7 titles is still a long way to go. Messi will retire in 3-4 years max.

    Doubt he will retire early, I think both him and CR7 will end up in China.
