Overview

On 2 May, Córdoba were relegated with three games left to play in the season, after losing 0–8 at home against Barcelona.[26] Eight days later, Villarreal confirmed sixth place and an entry into the UEFA Europa League with Joel Campbell's winning goal against Elche.[27]

Barcelona, playing with a three-man attack of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suárez under new manager Luis Enrique,[28] won the title on 17 May with a goal by Messi to defeat holders Atlético Madrid at the Vicente Calderón Stadium. It came exactly a year after Atlético had won their league title at Barcelona's Camp Nou.[29] Real Madrid, with profound inconsistency in the second half of the season,[30] secured second place on the same day as Barcelona won the title, with a 1–4 win at Espanyol.[31]

The battle for the Champions League was settled in the last 10 minutes of the season. Valencia, in fourth place with 74 points, went into the last match of the season at relegation-threatened Almería, facing all three possibilities of direct qualification to the group stage of the Champions League, qualification to the play-off round, or missing out on the Champions League altogether. Valencia won the match 3–2 to secure fourth place, as Atlético Madrid, 3 points ahead, drew at Granada. Sevilla, with a 3–2 win at Málaga, achieved a record 76 points total without Champions League qualification, finishing fifth.[32][33][34] Sevilla however qualified for the Champions League by winning the 2015 UEFA Europa League Final.

Despite finishing the season in the 13th position, on 5 June, Elche was relegated to Segunda División due to its financial struggles.[35] Newcomers Eibar, who finished the season in the 18th position, will take Elche's place in 2015–16 La Liga.
