Saturday's 2-2 draw with Deportivo de la Coruna served as the backdrop for the celebration of Barcelona's 23rd La Liga title. The scene at the Camp Nou was a joyous one as Lionel Messi, the scorer of both Barca goals against Depor, and his teammates lifted the trophy and celebrated on the field with their families.
The occasion was also bittersweet as Barcelona said goodbye to an all-time legend.
Xavi graced the starting XI one last time for the club he joined as an 11-year-old and produced a typical performance with a team-best 116 passes. But in the 86th minute, it was time for the 35-year-old to leave the field awash in the home supporters' cheers and gratitude. Fittingly, Xavi was replaced by substitute Andres Iniesta, his fellow midfield maestro for over a decade.

Topping the Champions League magic he performed against Bayern Munich was never going to be easy for Lionel Messi when Barcelona turned its attention back to maintaining its La Liga lead over Real Madrid on Saturday. An organized, Everton-esque Real Sociedad side under David Moyes made things challenging during a scoreless first half before Neymar finally broke through with a 51st-minute header.
Barca was seeing its way through to a 1-0 victory and a five-point lead over Real Madrid when the Camp Nou faithful were treated to another moment of soccer brilliance. It didn't come from Messi, though.
Pedro, the odd-man out in Barcelona's star-studded forward trio, grabbed the spotlight after pulling off a stunning bicycle kick to complete a 2-0 win over Real Sociedad.

We have often wondered what bubble Sepp Blatter lives in. The industrial-strength Teflon president of FIFA is impervious to scandal, even when the cost is human lives. What we do know is that this place he calls home must be the closest thing to Nirvana (the idyllic state or the iconic grunge band, take your pick) because no matter what Blatter says or does comes with zero consequence.
Cue the latest dumb thing to come out of Blatter's mouth.
In an interview with BBC World Service radio, Blatter said he considers himself "a little bit as a godfather of the organization of women's football in FIFA," later admitting that "there is still a lot to do" in the women's game.
So, as you can imagine, Blatter's "godfather" claim didn't go over so well on Twitter.
Sepp Blatter calls himself "godfather" of women's soccer in BBC interview. Will now go and throw up http://t.co/2g7zsGWloK

The gap between second-place Real Madrid and first-place Barcelona in the La Liga title race remained at two points going into this weekend's games, but who are we kidding? It would take a shocking stumble by Barca for Real to claim its first league title since 2012.
For 41 minutes on Saturday, Real Madrid supporters had to think they were about to get that miracle result against Barcelona from the most unlikely source – last-place Cordoba. Crushed 5-0 at the Camp Nou in December, the underdog hosts had surrendered about three quarters of possession but had managed to limit Barca to just one shot on goal.
Suarez got his hat trick in 88th minute. Cordoba got its ticket officially punched for relegation.
