Luis Suarez scored his 300th club goal of his career on Sunday when he netted his second of a brace against Espanyol for Barcelona.
Luis Enrique’s side ran out 5-0 winners at the Camp Nou, leaving the La Liga title in their hands for the final day of the season.
Atletico Madrid’s 2-1 defeat to Levante means Diego Simeone’s men are no longer in with a chance of winning the trophy due to their head-to-head record with the Catalan club, and only Real Madrid can now catch Barca.
For Suarez though, the personal achievements have already continued after his double saw him reach the 300-goal milestone – and he is still only 29-years- old.

The former Liverpool and Ajax player has flourished in the lethal M-S-N trio alongside Lionel Messi and Neymar in Barcelona’s attack, and, playing in the No.9 role, has found goals even easier to come by.
The Uruguayan has scored 37 in 34 La Liga appearances this season, putting him four clear of Cristiano Ronaldo in the hunt for the Pichichi.
Suarez moved to the Catalan club in 2014 following a successful spell in the Premier League, and was part of Barcelona’s treble-winning side last season.
The forward will now be hoping to ensure Barcelona retain their league crown in the final game of the season against Granada next weekend.
