Barcelona Reach 100 Points

Barcelona ended their La Liga season in fine fashion as goals from David Villa, Cesc Fabregas and Martin Montoya and Andres Iniesta saw them beat Malaga 4-1 as they amassed 100 points for the season.

In his first season since replacing Pep Guardiola, coach Tito Vilanova's side equalled Real Madrid's record-breaking points haul set under Jose Mourinho last season, while Manuel Pellegrini suffered defeat in his last match before departing for Manchester City.

It was quick-fire start from Barcelona who scored three times in the opening 16 minutes to virtually put the game beyond doubt.

Barcelona opened the scoring in the third minute through Villa as Iniesta curled a pass through the middle of Malaga’s defence which saw Pedro cushion the ball into the goalscoeres path who made no mistake from close range, 1-0.

Iniesta created the second as well in the 14th minute as he put Fabregas through on goal who produced a fine strike to make it 2-0.

Martin Montoya followed suit with an absolute screamer two minutes later from 25-yards out after connecting with the ball on the volley off a corner-kick.

Barcelona added a fourth seven minutes into the second half when Iniesta whipped in a sensational strike from 25-yards into the top right corner.

Malaga found their consolation goal in the 56th minute as Pedro Morales volley home to make it 4-1.

Barca top the standings with 100 points from 38 games, 15 ahead of second-placed Real who signed off with a 4-2 home win over Osasuna earlier.

Malaga finished the season in sixth.
