Barcelona secured their 25th La Liga title with a win at El Riazor on Sunday night but they didn’t have it all their way. Deportivo fought back from a two goal deficit to tie the game before Lionel Messi scored twice in the final ten minutes to decide the match.
When he's in form, Lionel Messi is unplayable. En route to the Golden Shoe, the Argentine could be a hero and a villain at the same time this evening. His performance could win La Liga for Barcelona... and relegate Deportivo la Coruna.
Deportivo fans awoke on Sunday morning to the news that Cristóbal Parralo has been let go as their manager. After a run of bad results, the 5-0 thrashing away to Real Sociedad on Friday night was the final nail in his coffin.
