Barcelona looking for La Liga title

After winning the Copa del Rey on Wednesday, Barcelona will now turn their attention to securing the La Liga title, which would be their second trophy in five days.

Barca need just one point to guarantee the title when they take on Real Mallorca on Sunday. They head into the fixture enjoying an eight-point lead over Real Madrid with just three matches left. In fact the Catalan outfit may become league champions before a ball is even struck, if second place Real Madrid fail to beat Villarreal at the Madrigal on Saturday night. Defensive midfielder Yaya Toure gave his thoughts on the climax to the title race.

Yaya Toure, Barcelona Midfielder, said, "I think that it will better to win without playing, because we have a very important game ahead of us, that is the Champions League final. So I think it will be perfect to win without playing. The coach Josep Guardiola has to give us some rest because we want to get to the Champions League final in full shape."
