  • Ernesto Valverde will win La Liga with Barcelona at the first attempt if they beat Deportivo

Atletico earned a first away league win in more than two months thanks to a late penalty converted by French forward Gameiro after Fernando Torres had spurned an earlier spot-kick against Alaves. In the end we were the best.

Los Blancos are being urged to respect their arch-rivals when the two sides meet, after Ernesto Valverde's side wrapped up the La Liga title against Deportivo on Sunday.

Lionel Messi scored a hat-trick as Barcelona regained the title in LaLiga with a pulsating 4-2 win against Deportivo La Coruna, who were relegated.

"To finish the season with these feelings before the World Cup and with another adventure ahead, I wish it were eternal".

NFL Draft: Where and when to watch the second and third rounds
Gutekunst shored up the defense in the first three rounds, starting with Louisville cornerback Jaire Alexander in the first. This will prevent Alexander from being "buried" under a slew of talent when he's actually ready to play.

It was Messi's 46th career hat trick for the club and the victory keeps them on track to be the only team to ever go an entire season without losing a game.

However, the title success has come with a rather subdued feeling after their shock UEFA Champions League exit to Roma earlier this month but the five-time Ballon d'Or victor is hopeful they can finish off the domestic season in style.

"It's been an nearly flawless season for us in the league", midfielder Sergio Busquets said. The 33-year-old will leave the club he first joined at the age of 12 at the end of the season. Great season and next year to try to improve what has not been done well.

Midfielder Sergio Busquets told reporters pitchside after the game: "The win at home against Atleti when it was such a big deal to win at home, that was a key moment, it showed we never gave up". Each competition has its difficulty and its value and that is what we have to stay with.

Darvish rebounds, but denied 1st win as Cub
Darvish got his second big league double and fifth hit with a drive into the right-field corner in the fifth inning against Suter. Anderson has won his past two outings but has already dropped one decision against the Cubs this season.

Iniesta and Messi each have won nine Spanish league titles. On a personal level, as a sportsman, there are no words when you receive such affection in such a hard situation for the fans.

Andres Iniesta means so much more to Barcelona than the 30-plus titles he helped add to its trophy case. "And that is all I have tried to do, to be both the great player and the great person that this club deserves".

All of Barca's goals were exceptional but the nonchalance with which Luis Suarez crossed with the outside of his foot for Messi to side-foot home the second smacked of a team yet to lose a league match.

Jose Mourinho: 'If he respects me, Arsene Wenger can be my friend'
Mourinho also said there was "no chance" that keeper David de Gea would be allowed to leave the club in the close season. After all, Wenger has had some intense battles with United and Mourinho down the years.
