The move allowed Messi to float across the attack and the midfield more freely and made him even more risky.

Barcelona claimed their 25th La Liga title on Sunday as a Lionel Messi hat-trick secured a thrilling 4-2 victory at Deportivo La Coruna that wrapped up the league with four matches to spare. "The title is not decided by a couple of games but by many, we have been chasing it since the start and we have been top of the table since the start".

"This feels good. The championship is a competition that lasts all year, it is about consistency and the team deserved this title", said Iniesta.

Lionel Messi set another record in his glittering Barcelona career after becoming the first player to score 30 goals or more in seven different seasons in La Liga. The move allowed Messi to float across the attack and the midfield more freely and made him even more unsafe.

The jubilant side took to the Catalonia streets on Monday to enjoy their incredible achievement, as well as honor their outgoing captain Andres Iniesta, who has confirmed that this season will be his last with La Blaugrana.

"It was a very special league for everyone because we didn't lose any matches", Messi said.

After North Korea triumph, Trump deserves the Nobel Peace Prize
The British betting site Coral also set the odds of Trump and Kim jointly winning the 2018 prize at 2-1 - the highest on the list. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) floated the idea of a Nobel Prize for the president when speaking with Fox News on Friday morning.

Double defending champions Madrid, meanwhile, are aiming to make it three Champions League titles in a row. "We went through hard times but we overcame it all without losing any matches and that's incredible".

Messi helped Barcelona keep the unbeaten streak alive by coming off the bench at Sevilla and scoring an 89th-minute goal that allowed the Catalan club to salvage a 2-2 draw. The only blemish on their season was a stunning Champions League quarter-final loss to Roma when they blew a 4-1 first-leg lead to be dumped out at the Stadio Olimpico.

"It was a very unexpected result for us", Messi said.
