How Barcelona Lost The League Title To RealMadrid

1. BARCELONA VS SEVILLA

Barca was the sharper team on the night and had more chances, but just three of the team's nine shots went on frame. Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez started up top, Barcelona had 10 corner kicks but could not break down Sevilla defense that regularly played with 10 guys behind the ball.

2. CELTA VIGO VS BARCELONA

Barcelona 's hopes of winning LaLiga for a third successive season suffered a blow as they were held to a 2-2 draw at Celta Vigo – handing Real Madrid a huge boost in the title race.

Luis Suarez scored a brace – both of his goals assisted by Lionel Messi – as Barca twice held the lead on the road on Saturday.

However, after Fedor Smolov had equalised earlier in the second half, Iago Aspas curled in an 88th-minute free-kick to bring Celta level again in a see-saw contest in Galicia.

3. BARCELONA VS ATHELETICO MADRID

Barcelona and Atletico Madrid played to a 2-2 draw at the Camp Nou on Tuesday night in a match that saw three penalties converted and an own goal make up the final scoreline.

The game saw Lionel Messi net his 700th career goal for Barcelona and Argentina, but the result means more dropped points for La Liga's defending champions as they are one behind first-placed Real Madrid, who have a game in hand against Getafe on Thursday.

BARCELONA VS OSASUNA

Osasuna secured a famous win at the Camp Nou after beating Barcelona 2-1 at the Camp Nou on Thursday night.

The Catalans came into the game knowing that they needed a miracle to win LaLiga Santander - they were four points behind leaders Real Madrid, who also hold the head-to-head advantage - and it seemed evident that Quique Setien knew that, as he opted to rest a series of starters.
