“Even though their opponents weren’t great, Barcelona still had to win away from home against Granada to make sure of the La Liga title, and they did that comfortably.”


Manos Staramopoulos, Dimocratia, Greece

“Alongside his hat trick, Napoli’s Gonzalo Higuain eclipsed Gunnar Nordahl’s record of 35 goals in a single Serie A season, set all the way back in 1950.”


Tom Timmemann, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, United States

“Some big performances with a lot on the line this week. How can you not go for (Luis) Suarez and his season-ending hat trick? It’s amazing how players like him and (Lionel) Messi and (Cristiano) Ronaldo can rise to the occasion.”


Ubiratan Leal, trivela.com, Brazil

“After some defeats from Barcelona, it seemed the fight between the Catalan side and both Madrid teams would be spectacular. But Barcelona, in top form, is in a league of their own. Especially against minor domestic sides.”


Umaid Wasim, Dawn Newspaper, Pakistan

“You have to be someone special to trump Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi for the scoring honors in La Liga. Luis Suarez showed exactly that with a title-delivering hat trick for Barcelona.”


Mike McGrath, The Sun, England

“Barcelona successfully completing their title challenge means they are the best in the world this week but Real Madrid can reclaim the crown by winning the Champions League.”


Jonathan Johnson, BeIN Sports USA, France

“Although they will not win the team of the week poll, Toulouse deserve recognition. Pascal Dupraz’s men fought back from a losing position twice before finally taking the lead late against Angers to seal a 3-2 win and confirm Ligue 1 football for next season.”
