Listen hard once the celebrating in Barcelona subsides and you may still be able to hear the gnashing of teeth 300 miles away in Madrid.

Barca clinched their third successive Primera Liga triumph last night with a 1-1 draw at Levante. The party kicked off in the 28th minute when Seydou Keita headed Pep Guardiola's side in front to cap a stylish attacking move.

In-form Levante put a dampener on proceedings when on-loan Manchester City striker Felipe Caicedo capitalised on a Gerard Pique error to secure a draw. However, the point was enough to wrap up the league title ahead of Jose Mourinho's Real Madrid, and Barca now turn their attention to the May 28 Champions League final showdown with Manchester United.
