WINNER: Messi nets elusive prize
WINNER: Messi nets elusive prize

LIONEL Messi is aiming for a ‘spectacular’ La Liga and Copa del Rey double.

Barcelona and Real Madrid go into the final round of La Liga matches both able to win the title.

Victory for Barcelona at Granada will bring the title to the Nou Camp for the sixth time in eight years.

But if they slip and los blancos win at Deportivo La Coruna the trophy will be heading to the Spanish capital.

“Always for Barcelona, the fans don’t want to see Real Madrid win [anything],” said Messi.

“We have two finals left, and it would be great to end the season winning them both.

“It also would have been great to have been in the Champions League final but it wasn’t to be. So winning two of three would be spectacular.”
