La Liga

Could Lionel Messi leave Barcelona after this season?

Real Madrid claimed their 34th league title after beating Villarreal 2-1 at an empty Alfredo Di Stefano stadium. Karim Benzema scored both goals for Real Madrid.

Benzema fired pass the Villarreal's goalkeeper Sergio Asenjo before adding a second from the penalty spot.

Vicente Iborra gave Villarreal some ray of hope after pulling one back, but Real Madrid were able to hold on, seeing out the game as the club wrapped up their 34th league title.

Zidane's side who have won all 10 of their games since the league restarted in June head into the final game with a seven-point lead over second-placed Barcelona.

The Real Madrid boss says winning his first league title in three years feels better than winning the Champions League.

"This is better than anything. It takes a tremendous effort to win the LaLiga. After 38 matches, you have more points than anyone else."

On the other hand, Lionel Messi isn't happy with the way Barcelona surrendered the league to Real Madrid. Barcelona were leading the table before the league went on a three-month break in March.

Messi scored Barcelona's only goal in their game with Osasuna but it was not enough to ensure that they win the game as they went on to loss 1-2.

After the game, Messi was frustrated with how the club as fared all through the season.

"All season we have been a very weak team, beaten for intensity, for motivation, people can score against us very easy, we lost many points where we shouldn't lose them. This game has just summed up how our season has been."

Do you think Lionel will leave Barcelona?
