  1. End of an era

    Xavi

    For now, though. I leave you with the words of Xavi, who played his last La Liga game for Barcelona at the Nou Camp after a 24-year career at the club.

    Afterwards, fighting back tears, he said: "I am the happiest man in the world today and for the 17 seasons I have been [in the first team]. As the coach has said this hasn't finished. We want two more titles and we want to be here with you all again in Barcelona on June 7 [after the Champions League final]."

    The way Barca are playing this season, Xavi might just have his way.

  2. Post update

    Real Madrid 7-3 Getafe

    Plenty to ponder for Real Madrid. Will Carlo Ancelotti stay? Will Gareth Bale be heading back to the Premier League? And what of Barcelona. Can they match their 2009 feat of a domestic and European treble? The second leg of that challenge comes in the Copa Del Rey next Saturday against Athletic Bilabo and they face Juventus the following weekend in the Champions League final in Berlin. You will be able to follow both those games right here.

  3. FULL-TIME

    Real Madrid 7-3 Getafe

    So Real Madrid finish second in la Liga, just two points behind champions Barcelona. It's not a huge gap, but appearances can be deceptive judging by the mood in the Spanish capital. Next season cannot come quick enough.

  4. FULL-TIME

    Real Madrid 7-3 Getafe

    And that was the last action of the game. All over. Great entertainment.

  5. GOAL

    Real Madrid 7-3 Getafe - Marcelo

    Seven up, 10-goal thriller. Write your own headlines. Jese Rodriguez steams down the right, squares across the edge of the six-yard box and Marcelo slides in for an easy finish.

  6. GREAT SAVE!

    Real Madrid 6-3 Getafe

    What a parting shot or should that be save from Iker Casillas. Pablo Sarabia fires in from 25 yards and the Real keeper tips over acrobatically.

    Galen: Real Madrid wouldn't be Real Madrid if they kept with a coach long term. Capello, Del Bosque. Won trophies but...

    Vaishnev: Carlo Ancelloti should not be sacked. Please write a strong article against Perez for his policy as Carlo deserves to be there.

  8. Post update

    Real Madrid 6-3 Getafe

    Jese Rodriguez and Javier Hernandez are again carving through the Getafe defence. The latter's shot is well saved, though.

  9. Post update

    Real Madrid 6-3 Getafe

    Iker Casillas punches the resulting free-kick clear and receives cheers for his distribution. The home supporters are now crying 'Iker, Iker' as he applauds them in response. It could be the last time he savours the Bernabeu.

  10. YELLOW CARDS

    Real Madrid 6-3 Getafe

    Getafe's Alexis goes into the book for a foul on Jese Rodriguez. The free-kick comes to nothing and Real's Marcelo also receives a yellow card soon after.

  11. Post update

    Real Madrid 6-3 Getafe

    Getafe goalscorer Diego Castro is taken off in place of Baba Diawara.

  12. Post update

    Real Madrid 6-3 Getafe

    Real's Jese Rodriguez should be on the scoresheet again, but scoops the ball over the Getafe bar with the goal at this mercy.

  13. Post update

    Real Madrid 6-3 Getafe

    Do you think Carlo Ancelotti should get the boot? He won the Champions League last season. Strangely, he was also sacked by Chelsea the year after he did the Premier League and FA Cup double. It seems that last year doesn't count for the Italian coach.

    Carlo Ancelotti

    Cheer up Carlo your team are winning now!

  15. GOAL

    Real Madrid 6-3 Getafe - Jese Rodriguez

    A lovely goal this. Jese Rodriguez plays a beautifully-weighted one-two with James Rodriguez and fizzes his shot into the far corner. That should be game over. Real are well in control now.

  16. Post update

    Real Madrid 5-3 Getafe

    Jese is brought down outside the left side of Getafe's penalty area. James Rodriguez steps up, but his curling effort is well saved.

  17. Post update

    Real Madrid 5-3 Getafe

    The pace is slowing in this one as the drums rumble from the top of the Bernabeu. Toni Kroos picks out James Rodriguez on the left wing, with the Colombian squaring to Javier Hernandez, but the former Manchester United striker fires straight at Jordi Codina.

  18. Post update

    Real Madrid 5-3 Getafe

    Great chance for Getafe's Alexis. Superb run by Pablo Sarabia down the left, he cuts it back to his team-mate six yards from goal but he flicks with his wrong foot wide of the post.

  19. Post update

    Real Madrid 5-3 Getafe

    If you don't know much about Martin Odegaard, I can tell you he moved to Real in January from Stromgodset for a fee reported to be about 3m Euro. He made his Norway debut at the age of 15 and the left-footer has drawn comparisons to Barcelona's Lionel Messi for his style of play.

    Martin Odegaard

    Now here is a piece of history. Norwegian 16-year-old Martin Odegaard is coming on to become the youngest ever play to make his Real Madrid debut. The teenager is on for Cristiano Ronaldo, who will be La Liga's top scorer again this season.

  22. Post update

    Real Madrid 5-3 Getafe

    Real's Cristiano Ronaldo drives down the right side, cuts inside and fires over the top. More goals in this game. For sure.

  23. Post update

    Real Madrid 5-3 Getafe

    Almost another for Getafe as Pedro Leon heads a corner towards the Real goal but it is cleared off the line by Asier Illarramendi.

  24. GOAL

    Real Madrid 5-3 Getafe - James Rodriguez

    This is relentless. Real win a free-kick 25 yards out but on the angle. No problem for Colombian James Rodriguez, who curls into the top corner with venom for his 17th of the season.

  25. Post update

    Real Madrid 4-3 Getafe

    That's a ninth of the season for Javier Hernandez. You wonder what his future holds at the Bernabeu. There might be a fair bit of upheaval this summer.

  26. GOAL

    Real Madrid 4-3 Getafe - Javier Hernandez

    That didn't take long did it? Marcelo croses into the box from the left, Cristiano Ronaldo somehow heads against the post from about four yards out but Javier Hernandez is on hand to smack in the rebound from an acute angle.

    Chicharito
  27. Post update

    bring back our girls: Real are amazing, aren't they? Barca thump them regularly because they can keep them out. Real shame.

    Viv: This is why Real has not won anything this season. Very complacent play from goalkeeper/defenders/midfielders.

  30. HALF-TIME

    Real Madrid 3-3 Getafe

    So to sum up. Cristiano Ronaldo scores a 21-minute hat-trick, a record equalling eighth of the season. He now has 61 goals all in. Meanwhile, Getafe have scored three goals in a La Liga game for the first time this season.

    You're going to miss this when it's gone this summer aren't you?

  31. HALF-TIME

    Real Madrid 3-3 Getafe

    How was that for a half in a game that appeared meaningless? Breathless at times.

  32. YELLOW CARD

    Real Madrid 3-3 Getafe

    Jese into the book for a trip on Diego Castro. Another fee-kick for Getafe is an enticing position. But it's just over.

  33. Post update

    Real Madrid 3-3 Getafe

    Almost another for Getafe, who have been practising their shooting this week, clearly. This time it's Pedro Leon who is a whisker wide from 20 yards as Iker Casillas breathes a huge sigh of relief. This game can't end soon enough for him.

  35. GOAL

    Real Madrid 3-3 Getafe - Mehdi Lacan

    Getafe aren't done here yet. Nightmare first half for Iker Casillas but he cannot do much at all. Real fail to clear a corner and Medhi Lacen fires in from close range. Incredible.

  36. Post update

    Real Madrid 3-2 Getafe

    It's all too much for Real defender Pepe, who is taken off injured. Raphael Varane is on in his place. Looks like a hamstring problem.

  37. Post update

    Real Madrid 3-2 Getafe

    Just catching breath here as Cristiano Ronaldo receives the ball deep in the Getafe area but goakkeeper Jordi Codina dives across to save.

  38. GOAL

    Real Madrid 3-2 Getafe - Cristiano Ronaldo

    No Mistake from Cristinao Ronaldo. He finds the bottom corner for his 61st of the season. That's his eighth hat-trick this term too.

  39. PENALTY TO REAL MADRID

    Cristiano Ronaldo plays his part in this by teeing up the onrushing Javier Hernandez, who is chopped down by the Getafe defence quicker than a lumberjack on heat.

  40. GOAL

    Real Madrid 2-2 Getafe - Cristiano Ronaldo

    What a way to bring up your 60th goal of the season. Real win a free-kick close to 30 yards out, Cristiano Ronaldo steps up and fires into the bottom left corner.

    Cristiano Ronaldo
  41. Post update

    Real Madrid 1-2 Getafe

    Diego Castro fancies his chances here and why not? Another break down the Getafe left but he fires high and wide.

  42. Post update

    Real Madrid 1-2 Getafe

    There is a surreal atmosphere in the Bernabeu. Some of the fans are booing their team while others are trying to rally their troops. Cristiano Ronaldo, now on 59 goals for the season, hits a left-wing free-kick too fiercely.

  43. GOAL

    Real Madrid 1-2 Getafe - Diego Castro

    This isn't the kind of opening that Iker Casillas had in mind with David De Gea supposedly waiting in the wings. Another break down the left for Getafe, the ball is squared to Diego Castro and he curls into the top corner for a wonderful start.

    Getafe score
  44. GOAL

    Real Madrid 1-1 Getafe

    If the Bernabeu was already feeling deflated, you can add crank it down a few notches now. A Getafe corner is cleared and Sergio Escudero has space to fire in from 25 yards. A great strike, giving Iker Casillas no chance.

    Getafe celebrate
  45. LINE-UPS

    Real Madrid 1-0 Getafe

    Gareth Bale on the bench for Real - here are the starting XIs for both teams.

    Real Madrid starting XI: Casillas, Arbeloa, Pepe, Nacho, Marcelo, Illarramendi, Kroos, Rodriguez, Jesé, Hernández, Ronaldo.

    Getafe starting XI: Codina, Martín Vigaray, Gomes Pereira, Ruano Delgado, Escudero, Rodríguez Villamuela, Lacen, Sánchez Gil, Castro, Sarabia, Hinestroza.

  46. Post update

    Real Madrid 1-0 Getafe

    A reminder that Real Madrid will finish second in La Liga, sealing a Champions League place for next season. Getafe are 15th in the table but could move above Levante with a draw.

  47. GOAL

    Real Madrid 1-0 Getafe - Cristiano Ronaldo

    No messing for Cristiano Ronaldo as he heads into the net following a left-wing cross from Marcelo. Great finish.

  49. Post update

    Real Madrid 0-0 Getafe

    Real Madrid have made a positive start to their match in the Bernabeu where the atmosphere is arguably a little less joyous than at the Nou Camp. James Rodriguez and Cristiano Ronaldo have been on the front foot so far.

  50. Barcelona crowned La Liga champions

    So that's the first stage of a potentially historic treble out of the way for Barcelona. Just the small matter of the Copa del Rey on 30 May against Athletic Bilbao in the Nou Camp. Then it's the Champions League final against Juventus in Berlin on 6 June. Can Xavi play his part?

    We are under way at the Bernabeu as Real Madrid kick off.

  54. Post update

    Barcelona 2-2 Deportivo La Coruna

    In front of a packed Nou Camp, Xavi stands to lift his eighth La Liga title as the ticker tape spirals into the balmy Barcelona evening. Could he back to win more as a coach?

  55. Post update

    Real Madrid v Getafe (19:30 BST)

    Kick off between Real Madrid and Getafe, the last game of the season, is imminent too. Not much to play for but it could be Carlo Ancelloti's last game in charge. Can last season's Champions League winners give him a royal send off?

  56. Post update

    Barcelona 2-2 Deportivo La Coruna

    At the Nou Camp, the players are all on the pitch to salute Xavi. The Barcelona midfielder is due to receive the club's 23rd La Liga title as the fans display their full array of colours in the stands. It's mural time!

  57. Race for the Champions League

    At the top of La Liga, Atletico Madrid seal third spot with Valencia grabbing the fourth Champions League place. Sevilla finish fifth but could head to the Champions League if they win the Europa League final.

  58. Post update

    Barcelona 2-2 Deportivo La Coruna

    Deportivo's success contrast with Almeria's sorrow. They lost 3-2 against Valencia and along with Eibar and the already relegated Cordoba, they will face next season in the Segunda Division.

  59. FULL-TIME

    Barcelona 2-2 Deportivo La Coruna

    Deportivo players are surrounding the referee, they want the game to finish and that's it. It's over. Xavi's farewell is spoiled slightly but the main story is that Deportivo are safe. Incredible effort from the visitors.

  60. Post update

    Barcelona 2-2 Deportivo La Coruna

    And the answer is no. Barca's Adriano receives the ball on the edge of the area, but he scoops his effort high wide and nowhere near the goal.

  61. Post update

    Barcelona 2-2 Deportivo La Coruna

    Barcelona get the ball forward, roared on by the crowd. Can they find a winner?

  62. YELLOW CARD

    Barcelona 2-2 Deportivo La Coruna

    Deportivo win a free-kick near the Barca touchline and they are taking their time with it. Oriol Riera goes into the book for time wasting but they win a corner soon after. Nice play.

  63. Post update

    Barcelona 2-2 Deportivo La Coruna

    A Mexican wave flows around the Nou Camp as the crowd chant 'Champions, Champions'. Deportivo will hope that the premature celebrations slow the game down a touch.

  64. Post update

    Right back to the action. Barca have won their last six games without conceding a goal before today. This would be some result for Deportivo. We have five minutes of stoppage time.

    Xavi gets hugs and applause from team-mates, opponents and the whole stadium as he is replaced. Wow. The hairs on the back of my neck have just stood up as the Nou Camp bellows his name from the bottom row to the top tier. A true Barcelona legend. Andres Iniesta comes on in his place.

  67. Post update

    Barcelona 2-2 Deportivo La Coruna

    Deportivo have reverted to their defensive tactics now they have the equaliser. Eleven men behind the ball, and hanging onto a place in La Liga by their finger-tips. Seven minutes plus stoppage time left.

  68. Post update

    Barcelona 2-2 Deportivo La Coruna

    Jeremy Mathieu went into the book for the handball which led to that free-kick. Not that it matters now. As it stands, Deportivo are safe and happily spoiling Xavi's farewell.

  71. GOAL

    Barcelona 2-2 Deportivo La Coruna - Diogo Salomao

    Unbelievable. Where has this come from? Haris Medunjanin's free-kick on the edge of the box is blocked by the Barca wall, but it falls to Diogo Salomao, who slams home from 15 yards out. What a turnaround.

    Deportivo players celebrate
  72. GREAT SAVE!

    Barcelona 2-1 Deportivo La Coruna

    An equalising goal for Deportivo might be the only way that they can stay up. But as they push forward Neymar is one-on-one with the La Coruna goalkeeper but the Barca striker is dispossessed. Fabricio then saves Xavi's dinked follow-up. Fabricio is having a good game.

  73. Post update

    Barcelona 2-1 Deportivo La Coruna

    That goal has definitely got Deportivo in a fizz. They are chasing and harrying the Barca defence as they seek a crucial equaliser.

  74. SUBSTITUTION

    Barcelona 2-1 Deportivo La Coruna

    Marc Bartra appears a little woozy after a previous collision. The Barcelona looks like he might have to come off and Javier Mascherano is on as his replacement.

  75. GOAL

    Barcelona 2-1 Deportivo La Coruna - Lucas Perez

    A lifeline for Deportivo? A low cross from the right hand side of the penalty area is deflected into the path of Lucas Perez. He turns and fires wonderfully into the top corner. A class finish.

  76. Post update

    Barcelona 2-0 Deportivo La Coruna

    Barca come close to grabbing a third but when the low right-wing cross comes in from Pedro, Deportivo's Alex Bergantinos collects the ball two feet from his own goalline and flicks the ball clear. Nerveless.

  77. SUBSTITUTION

    Barcelona 2-0 Deportivo La Coruna

    Thomas Vermaelen goes off after making his long-awaited debut and receives a rapturous reception from the Nou Camp faithful. The Belgian is replaced by Brazilian defender Douglas.

  78. Post update

    Barcelona 2-0 Deportivo La Coruna

    One of the successes of Barca strikers Neymar, Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez this season has been their unselfishness in front of goal and that was another great example.

  79. GOAL

    Barcelona 2-0 Deportivo La Coruna - Lionel Messi

    Barcelona cut through the heart of the defence as the Deportivo team push up. Neymar is away, clean through on goal but he squares to Lionel Messi for his 56th of the season. Easy.

    Barcelona 1-0 Deportivo La Coruna

    Worth reminding you that Deportivo have spent the last four seasons sharing their time between La Liga and the Segunda division. Relegated four seasons ago, they returned as champions. They were then demoted again before finishing runners-up in the second tier last season.

  87. Post update

    Barcelona 1-0 Deportivo La Coruna

    Warning: Xavi just mis-controlled the ball and lost it. Do not adjust your mobiles! But about 20 seconds later he has it back and pings a lofted pass to Rafinha on the right wing. Normal service has resumed.

  88. Post update

    Barcelona 1-0 Deportivo La Coruna

    Deportivo get us back under way. No changes to either side.

  89. End of an era

    Xavi

    Apologies for the liberal use of Xavi photos and the incredible tribute paid by the Barcelona fans before kick off. But when you've won eight La Liga titles, three Champions Leagues, two European Championships and a World Cup by putting oppositions defences in a spin your whole career, I reckon it's wroth making the most of his last few hours on a top-level football pitch.

  90. Race to beat the drop

    Worth saying that Valencia got a goal back to leave it 2-2 with relegation-threatened Almeria. That means Deportivo are a point behind fourth-bottom Granada, who are safe as it stands and drawing 0-0 with Atletico Madrid.

    Barcelona 1-0 Deportivo La Coruna

    Lionel Messi

    The referee blows for half-time. Pretty straight forward for Barcelona so far and Deportivo look outclassed at times but it's only 1-0 so there's still a chance. Lionel Messi's 55th goal of the season is the difference.

  93. Post update

    Barcelona 1-0 Deportivo La Coruna

    Deportivo make a rare advance into the Barcelona half, as Lucas Perez crosses from the right byline but Sidnei cannot poke his shot goalwards. Their best effort so far, though.

    Approaching half-time, we have three minutes of stoppage time. Barcelona being patient as Deportivo line the edge of the penalty area like a brick wall.

    Juventus 1-0 Napoli

    Italian Serie A

    As you might have heard in the past few days Napoli boss Rafael Benitez has emerged as the leading candidate to become the next Real Madrid manager. He still has a couple of games of the season left with Napoli, who are chasing a Champions League place in Serie A and it's not quite going to plan for Rafa in Turin. His side trail 1-0 to a goal from Juve's Roberto Pereyra at the half-time break.

    Barcelona 1-0 Deportivo La Coruna

    Deportivo goalkeeper Fabricio makes a fantastic double save to deny Lionel Messi a second, quickly rising to his feet to stop Pedro's close-range follow-up. That could be huge.

    "Xavi, Xavi, Xavi," cheer the Barcelona fans as their team casually strolls the ball around in midfield. Nine changes to this team, and they are not being tested as yet.

  110. DISALLOWED GOAL

    Barcelona 1-0 Deportivo La Coruna

    Lionel Messi has the ball in the net again from a lovely lofted pass from Neymar, and it looked onside, but the referee disagreed and that is all that counts.

    Barcelona 1-0 Deportivo La Coruna

    Eibar are now 2-0 up at home to already relegated Cordoba. Deportivo with it all to do.

    Barcelona 1-0 Deportivo La Coruna

    A couple of party pieces from Neymar as his backheel sets up an Adriano cross but it's just too deep for Jeremy Mathieu, who is showing no fear in getting forward and fires wide.

    Barcelona 1-0 Deportivo La Coruna

    Eibar have just scored to go 1-0 up against bottom club Cordoba, which puts Deportivo in the bottom two. Not a good opening for Victor Sanchez's side.

  114. GOAL

    Barcelona 1-0 Deportivo La Coruna - Lionel Messi

    Barcelona lead a quick counter attack, a cross from the left is too strong, but Rafinha clips it to the back post where the onrushing Lionel Messi heads in from close-range.

    It's a glorious day in Barcelona as Lionel Messi tries to pick out Jeremy Mathieu as he marauds forward from defence. But the lofted pass is just too strong.

    Barcelona 0-0 Deportivo La Coruna

    You can already see Deportivo's plan of action. Pack the midfield and perhaps score on the break? They are desperate to stay in La Liga. They were champions in the 1990-2000 season.

  117. KICK-OFF

    Barcelona 0-0 Deportivo La Coruna

    And we are under way in Xavi's last La Liga game. Wonder how many passes he will clock up?

    Wow. An incredible mural of Xavi is unveiled at the Nou Camp as Deportivo La Coruna give him the guard of honour. It's a special atmosphere already and the stands are packed to pay their respects.

    So how do you sum up Xavi's career and where do you think he stands in football's pantheon of greats? Sir Alex Ferguson once said: "I don't think he's given the ball away ever!"

    Barcelona v Deportivo La Coruna (17:30 BST)

    The Barcelona players will be wearing special shirts today saying 'Thankyou Xavi' on them before the diminutive midfielder heads to Qatari side Al Saad after this season. In his 17 years in the first team he has won 23 trophies including eight La Liga titles and three Champions Leagues. That could be four by the end of the season.

  121. Team news

    Xavi starts for Barcelona as expected, and there is a long-awaited debut for former Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen, who has been injured all season. Elsewhere Luis Enrique rests several players with bigger games in mind. There is a first La Liga start for Spanish goalkeeper Jordi Masip.

    Deportivo La Coruna, who will hope to avoid the drop, make four changes to the team which beat Levante last weekend. Roberto Canella replace Pablo Insua in defence, while Juan Dominguez, Lucas Perez, Ivan Cavaleiro all come in.

    Barcelona XI: Masip, Bartra, Vermaelen, Mathieu, Adriano, Roberto, Xavi, Rafinha, Pedro, Messi, Neymar

    Deportivo La Coruna: Fabricio, Canella, Sidnei, Lopo, Laure, Borges, Bergantinos, Dominguez, Lucas, Salomao, Cavaleiro.

  122. Team news

    Right, now that's cleared up let's get some team news for Barcelona v Deportivo. Who's playing alongside Xavi?

  123. Drama at both ends of La Liga

    Atletico Madrid need a point away at fifth-bottom Granada to seal the third automatic Champions League spot. A win for fourth-placed Valencia at second-bottom Almeria will secure their route to the qualifying round.

    Fifth-placed Sevilla appear outsiders as they travel to Malaga but could get in through the back door if they win the Europa League. And Barca's opponents Deportivo La Coruna could also face the drop, so don't expect them to join the Xavi festival today.

  124. Drama at both ends of La Liga

    Top of La Liga

    Before we discuss the achievements of one of Spain's greatest midfielders, a quick recap on the other significant games in La Liga today. There is a three-way race for the final two Champions League spots and four teams could be relegated with three matches proving crucial at either end of the table.

    Real Madrid v Getafe (19:30 BST)

    Then just after Xavi says goodbye, we will switch to Real Madrid's last game against Getafe. Kick-off for that is at 19:30 BST. The title might be wrapped up, but there will be plenty to savour on the final day in La Liga.

  126. Post update

    Barcelona v Deportivo La Coruna (17:30 BST)

    Of course, Barcelona will be crowned La Liga champions today for the 23rd time after their match with Deportivo La Coruna and we'll be bringing live updates of the game before the tears start to flow. Kick-off for that match is at 17:30 BST, where we will also keep you updated on the race for the other Champions League spots and the relegation scrap.

  127. End of an era

    Xavi

    Xavi, on the other hand, is Senor Barcelona. After joining the club as an 11 year-old, for the last 17 years he has orchestrated his team as one of the best deep-lying midfielders in history. He is the most decorated player in Spanish football and today marks his last game in the famous 'Blaugrana' shirt before he moves to Qatar. It promises to be an emotional day at the Nou Camp.

  128. End of an era

    Carlo Ancelott

    Carlo Ancelotti has only been at Real Madrid for two years but despite helping his side earn a 10th European Cup last season, he looks like he could be on his way out of the Bernabeu. Not through the back door, the Italian would hope!

  129. End of an era

    Xavi Hernandez and Carlo Ancelotti

    And so the curtain comes down on another season in La Liga. It's hard not to feel that for some it also marks an end of an era.
