The monumental trip up now a thing of the past, Barcelona will know all they need is for Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar to fire and they will be the La Liga champions for the second consecutive season. A win over Granada will give Barcelona the Spanish league title, but anything other than that, and they could see their biggest rivals – Real Madrid – pip them at the post.

Going by recent form, though, Barca do look heavy favourites to clinch the La Liga title. Since a three-game losing streak in the La Liga, which allowed Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid to put in a challenge for the crown, Barcelona have won four in a row, scoring 21 goals in the process.

Just like that, Messi, Suarez and Neymar have returned to form, and with Granada left with nothing to play for, considering they have guaranteed their place in the La Liga for next season, there really looks like being only one winner in this match.

Luis Enrique, whose side are have one point more than Real Madrid going into the final game of the season, though, warned his players of complacency, pointing to the fact that an already-relegated Levante ended Atletico Madrid's title hopes last weekend.

"There are two theories and they're both valid," Enrique told the club's official website when asked about the thought process of the Granada team going into this match. "Everyone was sure Atletico Madrid were going to beat Levante but look what happened. The same might happen with Granada. They might stronger with the pressure off or they might relax."

However, Enrique also emphasised the fact that when it comes to handling the pressure, there are no better players better equipped to deal with it than Barcelona's.

"We are different to other teams," Enrique added. "These players have won so many things and are used to all kinds of (ways to deal with pressure). We lap up this kind of pressure. These games are made-to-measure for Barca players."

This is a match made for Messi, Suarez and Neymar as well, and while they might be disappointed to be out of the Champions League – they do have a Copa Del Rey final next week, though -- they can make up for that disappointment by clinching a second La Liga title in as many years.
