Oh, what could’ve been. Only if Barcelona had managed to sustain their lead against Granada. Or, if they had managed to keep the lead against Levante, Cadiz, or even Real Madrid. These questions will trouble fans before the next season begins. Till then, however, Atletico Madrid have the crown and will retain it for nearly a year.

For what it is worth, Barcelona closed the season on a high note, with a win against Eibar, courtesy of a stunning goal from Antoine Greizmann. It may only have been his 13th goal of the La Liga season, but he has been in rather impressive form all year, and his stats prove the same.

The man in question leading the direct involvement charts for the year, however, is none other than Lionel Messi. After the win yesterday, he retained the Pichichi trophy – given to the top scorer of the La Liga season – with 30 goals to his name. Even though the gap between him and Gerard Moreno was of seven, it was only officially closed tomorrow.

Griezmann may have won the game for Barcelona yesterday, but it was Ronald Araujo who came through with an exceptional performance in the heart of the defence.

The 1-0 scoreline, for once, is perfectly indicative of how the game went. 0-0 at half time, Barcelona had attempted just one shot on target, which came through a wobbly effort from Oscar Mingueza, which could have been easily characterised as a pass gone wrong.

The most interesting stat from the incredible night in Spain, however, attributes to Luis Suarez, who sealed the La Liga title for Atletico Madrid with a winner, becoming the second Luis Suarez to achieve this feat, the first since Luis Suárez Miramontes. A stats that rolls right off your tongue.
