Deulofeu, Mascherano and Arda Turan left off Barca's title winning shirt

Barcelona star Lionel Messi

Barca doubled their lead in style in the 38th minute when Suarez lofted an exquisite outside-of-the-boot pass in the path of the onrushing Messi to side-foot home on the volley.

SERGIO RAMOS HAS confirmed that Real Madrid will not give a guard of honour to rivals Barcelona when the champions emerge for El Clásico on Sunday.

They are only four games from an unbeaten La Liga season.

However, given the standards of the club, it is still a disappointing season, especially given the manner of their Champions League quarterfinal exit to Roma that saw them surrender a 4-1 first leg lead to lose their second leg 3-0 on away goals.

But Barca have quashed those concerns in some style, with Ernesto Valverde able to celebrate a LaLiga and Copa del Rey double in his first season as head coach. "In the end, LaLiga is very long", he said.

Watford winger Gerard Deulofeu has hit back at Barcelona for omitting his name from the commemorative championship-winning shirt after their La Liga success this season.

"We have been far superior to our rivals, we haven't lost a match during the whole season", Messi told Barcelona's in-house television channel.

NFL Draft: Rashaad Penny joins Seattle Seahawks with 27th pick
With the first-round selection, Penny becomes the Aztecs' first such pick since Kyle Turley was chosen eighth overall in 1998. A pick that could've been traded with their 3rd (80) and extra 4th (137) rounder to secure Green Bay's 12th spot.

A youth product of Barcelona, Deulofeu was sold to Everton in 2015 after failing to secure first-team football at Barca.

Departing Barca great Andres Iniesta came on as a late substitute and was a given a huge roar by the generous Deportivo crowd. "It was unexpected. It's hard to do what we have done [domestically], but as we want to win everything, there's always a but".

" Winning the Champions League is a positive that is equivalent to those two or even more".

Valverde's unbeaten side have 86 points from 34 games, with Atletico 11 points adrift and third-placed Real Madrid on 71 points.

Former Barca keeper Ruben had to be at his best in the 30th minute to keep out a Messi free-kick after he had been fouled by Schar, who was a touch fortunate not to pick up a second yellow card.

Atletico forward Angel Correa was sent off with a second yellow card in second-half injury time.

Once Iniesta plays his remaining five matches with Barcelona, Iniesta will head to Russian Federation for this summer's World Cup in what could be the end of his glorious career with Spain.
