Barcelona came so close within just three minutes of clinching the Spanish league title on Sunday but were finally held to a 3-3 draw by defiant Villarreal letting them know a little how chelsea  feel from last week. With 13 minutes left, Barca were 3-1 up and the 98,000-strong crowd behind them  in the camp nou was already celebrating the club’s 19th league title. But Villarreal spoiled the party with late goals from Matias Fernandez and Joseba Llorente which shocked everyone.

 Barca now need just one more point from their last three games to clinch the title, and will probably do so next Sunday away to midtable Mallorca.

 “We wanted to celebrate the title today in front of our own fans,” said Barca’s Seydou Keita. He added that sending off Eric Abdial “was the key to our problems at the end.”
Abidal, also sent off against Chelsea on Wednesday, got his marching orders 13 minutes from time for pulling down Nihat Kahveci in the box. Fernandez put away the resulting penalty to make it 3-2, and Barca suddenly looked weary after all their recent exertions.
In the second minute of injury time, with the crowd begging for the final whistle, Llorente made it 3-3 with a left-foot drive.

 Barca now have 86 points from 35 games, eight more than real madrid, who were thrashed 3-0 by Valencia on Saturday.
