  1. Adios

    With two games to go, this La Liga title race is as close as the battle for promotion from League Two. And that's saying something.

    I'll leave you on that bombshell.

  3. Post update

    Real Betis keeper Antonio Adan used to play for Real Madrid. He was preferred over Iker Casillas by Jose Mourinho, before Real signed Diego Lopez.

  5. So what now?

    Barcelona 85 pts (36 games)

    Atletico Madrid 85 pts (36 games)

    Real Madrid 84 pts (36 games)

    Barcelona will win La Liga if they end up level on points with Atletico Madrid (or Real Madrid) as they have a better head-to-head record.

    (Goal difference isn't the decider in Spain)

    In the unlikely event it is Atletico and Real joint at the top, both above Barcelona, then Atletico would be champions.

    There are two games to go - next Sunday (8 May) and then Saturday, 14 May. 

    Barcelona: Espanyol (h), Granada (a)

    Atletico Madrid: Levante (h) Celta Vigo (h)

    Real Madrid: Valencia (h) Deportivo La Coruna (a)

    Spanish La Liga

    Real Madrid play at 15:00 BST and win to go top.

    Atletico Madrid play at 17:15 BST and win to go top.

    Barcelona play at 19:30 BST and win to go top.

    Seconds left. Barca are comfortable.

    Three minutes added on.

  10. Post update

    Real Betis 0-2 Barcelona

    Luis Suarez, by the way, is likely to become the first non-Lionel Messi/Cristiano Ronaldo winner of the Pichichi (Spanish golden boot) since Diego Forlan in 2009.

    He is on 35 goals this season - four clear of Cristiano Ronaldo with two games left. Lionel Messi, in third, is on 25 goals. Even he can't score 10 goals in two games, can he?

    Rohan Patwardhan: Passes like that tell you why Messi can easily play till he's 36, 37 and still make the difference.

  12. SUBSTITUTION

    Real Betis 0-2 Barcelona

    Barcelona keeper Claudio Bravo appears to pick up an injury and Marc-Andre ter Stegen, who is their first-choice cup goalkeeper, comes on for the closing minutes.

  14. SUBSTITUTION

    Real Betis 0-2 Barcelona

    Barcelona bring on summer signing Arda Turan, who hasn't set the world alight this season. Ivan Rakitic, the opening goalscorer, comes off to a few whistles - he used to play for Real Betis' arch-rivals Sevilla.

    Wale Ibraheem: A red carpet pass from Lionel Messi. A joy for any striker. But then how did that pass through entire Betis defence line.

  17. GOAL - Real Betis 0-2 Barcelona

    Luis Suarez

    That jolts Barcelona into life and Lionel Messi plays a perfectly weighted ball behind Real Betis' defence which Luis Suarez gets onto and fires home.

    That's his ninth goal in the last three games.

    Game over. Barcelona are two wins from the title.

    Real Betis 0-1 Barcelona

    Barcelona goalkeeper Claudio Bravo comes flying out of his goal to deal with a long ball and heads it away on the edge of his box...

  19. SUBSTITUTION

    Real Betis 0-1 Barcelona

    Real Betis bring on striker Ricky van Wolfswinkel, who is still on loan from Norwich, up front with Ruben Castro coming off.

  20. Post update

    Real Betis 0-1 Barcelona

    Bayern Munich earlier on were leading 1-0 in a big game but didn't kill the game off and Borussia Monchengladbach rescued a draw that denied Bayern the chance to win the title today.

    Barcelona won't want to do the same right now.
