  1. Goodbye

    So, wins for Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid and Barcelona. The race to be crowned champions of La Liga is shaping up to be another exciting title race but who can stop Barcelona? Many thanks for your company. See you in 2016.

  2. Top of the table

    Barcelona 4-0 Real Betis

    So, how does La Liga look going into 2016.

    Barcelona and Atletico Madrid are locked on 38 points but Barca top the table and have a game in hand.

    Real Madrid are third on 36 points.

  3. FULL-TIME

    Barcelona 4-0 Real Betis

    Barcelona finish a magnificent 2015 on top of La Liga.

  4. Post update

    Barcelona 4-0 Real Betis

    Two minutes of additional time.

  5. Post update

    Barcelona 4-0 Real Betis

    Next up for Barcelona? Espanyol away on Saturday. I bet they can't wait...

  6. Post update

    Barcelona 4-0 Real Betis

    Three minutes of normal time remaining. This has been another master-class by Barca. Few would bet against them winning another five trophies in 2016 on this evidence.

  7. Post update

    Barcelona 4-0 Real Betis

    Lionel Messi...Neymar....Luis Suarez....back of the net. Another wonderful move by Barca ends in a fourth goal. Suarez deserves that for his efforts. It came after Neymar's mis-hit flick bobbled and fell to the former Liverpool man.

    Barcelona 3-0 Real Betis

    Luis Enrique will be delight at ending 2015 at the top of La Liga but he will also be mystified why his team is not further ahead. Astonishing attacking play by Barca.

  12. HITS THE WOODWORK

    Barcelona 3-0 Real Betis

    Barcelona hit the woodwork - for the fourth time!

    You know the scenario by now..free-kick, Messi, ball thunders off the bar.

  13. HITS THE WOODWORK

    Barcelona 3-0 Real Betis

    I lost count long ago of how many chances Barca have had. They've just had two more in the space of a minute - Dani Alves' lob comes back off the crossbar before Suarez is clean through and can't finish. This could easily have been double figures.

  14. Post update

    Barcelona 3-0 Real Betis

    The mood inside the Nou Camp is in stark contrast to that in the Bernabeu earlier. Real Madrid might have won but the natives aren't happy. Barca's fans are out of their seats applauding every attack. And the man on the drum is whipping up a frenzy. 

  15. HITS THE WOODWORK

    Barcelona 3-0 Real Betis

    Free-kick to Barca. Messi or Neymar? It's Messi...and he brings a finger-tip save from Antonio Adan who pushes it on to the bar.

  16. CLOSE!

    Barcelona 3-0 Real Betis

    The Betis defence has all but given up. A long ball finds Neymar is acres of space inside the penalty area before a last-ditch challenge denies the Brazilian a certain goal.

    Barcelona 3-0 Real Betis

    Bad news for Betis. There's still another 25 minutes left.

  19. HITS THE WOODWORK

    Barcelona 3-0 Real Betis

    Incredible. Neymar to Messi whose point-blank shot is blocked. Seconds later Neymar hits the post with Betis's defence all over the place. Then Messi brings a great save. Betis players look as though they want the final whistle already.

  20. SUBSTITUTION

    Barcelona 3-0 Real Betis

    Sergio Busquets' night is complete. He goes off to a rousing reception and on comes Marc Bartra to join the party.
