Barca clinch La Liga league title


TK's Big Daddy

Barcelona clinched a second successive Spanish league title as Pep Guardiola's side ended the season with 99 points.
Barca looked nervous in the opening stages of their 4-0 win over Real Vallodolid, but once Luis Prieto put through his own net they relaxed.
Four minutes later Pedro Rodriguez slotted home a second, with Lionel Messi adding two second-half goals.
Key to Barca's title success were their two victories over rivals Real Madrid who finished second by three points.
Madrid drew 1-1 away with Malaga, a result that is likely to fuel speculation that Real's coach Manuel Pellegrini will be sacked after just a season in charge at the Bernabeu.
During last summer Real went on spending spree spending nearly £200m on four players - Cristiano Ronaldo, Kaka, Karim Benzema and Xabi Alonso.
Playing some scintillating football during the season, Barca lost just once in 38 league outings, scoring 96 times, with Fifa World Player of the Year Messi, netting an astonishing 34 goals. (y)
