Guardiola bids farewell to Nou Camp fans
Barcelona posted a convincing 4-0 win over city rivals Espanyol for Pep Guardiola's final game in charge at the Camp Nou. Argentine ace Lionel Messi was at his brilliant best, scoring all four goals to take his season's total to an impressive 72.
Liga champions Real Madrid were less convincing in their 2-1 win at Granada - who could still be relegated on the last day of the season next week. Granada led from the fifth minute and it wasn't until nine minutes from time when Cristiano Ronaldo levelled from the spot, with Cortes netting in his own goal to give Real the win in injury time.
Valencia made sure of third place with their 1-0 win over Villarreal with Jonas scoring in injury time.
A win in the last game of the season would secure Málaga the fourth UEFA Champions League spot, but Atlético Madrid moved to within two points of them with their 2-1 win over their fourth-place rivals at the Vicente Calderón.
Levante dropped down to sixth and Real Mallorca are now level with them in seventh after they claimed a 1-0 win thanks to Pina's goal just before the hour.
At the bottom, with Racing Santander already relegated, the final two relegation spots could still be filled in theory by five different clubs.
Second from bottom Sporting Gijón claimed a 2-1 win over Real Betis, but they still have a hard game against Málaga next week.
Real Zaragoza remain third from bottom but their recent fine form continued with a 2-1 win over Santander to put them level on points with Rayo Vallecano, who lost 5-2 at Sevilla.
Rayo and Zaragoza are just a point off Villarreal and another point off Granada going into the final game next Sunday.
Elsewhere, Osasuna snatched a 1-0 win over Real Sociedad whilst Athletic Bilbao warmed up for the Europa League final with a goalless draw at home to Getafe.
