Barcelona claimed the La Liga trophy for the fifth time in seven years after a clinical Lionel Messi strike secured a 1-0 victory at Atletico Madrid which wrapped up the title with a game to spare.

Cristiano Ronaldo hit a hat-trick for Real Madrid in their 4-1 victory at Espanyol but Barca cannot be caught with a four-point lead.

Messi combined with Pedro Rodriguez to slot home after 65 minutes and give Luis Enrique his first piece of silverware as coach of Barcelona who are still on course for a treble of trophies.
