Luis Enrique‘s final La Liga match in charge of Barcelona will be at home to Eibar.
It is the second consecutive season it has all come down to the final day.
So, ahead of this clash, we take a look back at some of the most dramatic finales.
Division One: 1988-89
Liverpool were overwhelming favourites to retain their title going into what was effectively a title play-off.
Only a two-goal victory at Anfield would be enough for Arsenal to finish ahead of the Reds.
George Graham’s men were 1-0 up through Alan Smith’s 52nd minute when John Barnes had the chance to take the ball into the corner flag and secure victory.
Ambitious as ever, he decided to try and find an equaliser but lost out and Gunners goalkeeper John Lukic picked up possession.
He found Lee Dixon whose long ball was flicked on by Alan Smith to the onrushing Michael Thomas.
“It’s up for grabs now,” said commentator Brian Moore famously as the boyhood Tottenham and future Liverpool player slipped the ball past the advancing Bruce Grobbelaar to seal the title with the final kick of the season.
La Liga: 1993-94
Barcelona were a point behind Deportivo La Coruna with one game left as they aimed for their fourth consecutive title.
Johan Cruyff’s Dream Team did their job as they thrashed Sevilla 5-2.
However, if Depor beat Valencia it would not matter, and they would be crowned champions themselves for the first time in their history.
But, it was still 0-0.
And, in the final minute, La Coruna were awarded a penalty.
With first-choice taker Donato off the pitch and Bebeto refusing to step up, it was down to Miroslav Djukic.
The Serb’s tame effort was easily saved and Barca were La Liga champs.
Premier League: 1994-95
Manchester United had won the first two editions of the newly-formed Premier League — but would need a favour from arch-rivals Liverpool to make it three.
Sir Alex Ferguson’s men travelled to West Ham two points behind Blackburn, who were at Anfield.
Things were going swimmingly for Rovers as Alan Shearer’s opener was followed by a goal for the home side at Upton Park.
However, Brian McClair equalised for Manchester United and John Barnes did likewise for Liverpool.
Ludek Miklosko’s heroics in the West Ham goal prevented Fergie’s boys from the taking the lead.
And Jamie Redknapp’s stoppage time winner for Liverpool didn’t matter as United failed to find a second goal.
Blackburn were champions.
Serie A: 1999-00
Lazio were fighting for their first title in 26 years but looked destined to lose out to serial-winners Juventus.
The Bianconeri beat Parma 1-0 at home in the penultimate day — and the away side’s controversially disallowed goal meant they led by two points.
Sven Goran Eriksson’s men easily dispatched of Reggina 3-0 but were made to wait as severe rain meant a delay in Juve’s clash with Perugia.
The title challengers were a goal down at half-time and skipper Antonio Conte pleaded with referee to call it off.
But the officials stayed strong and Juve couldn’t find an equaliser that would have sealed the title.
Perugia’s Marco Materazzi — a boyhood Lazio fan — took it upon himself to take the ball into the corner flag in stoppage time and ran down the tunnel celebrating after the final whistle.
La Liga: 2000-01
Not a title decider — but just as important.
Barcelona v Valencia was effectively a Champions League play-off.
Anything but a home win would see the runners-up in the previous two finals miss out on the 2001-02 edition.
Everything was in Valencia’s favour, but Barca had Rivaldo.
Twice, the Mestalla side equalised a goal by the Brazilian.
And, in the 87th, Rivaldo scored the final goal of the season as he made it 3-2 with a sensational bicycle kick.
Serie A: 2001-02
Two years later and it was roles reversed for Conte and Materazzi.
The controversial defender had since moved to Inter Milan, who were top going into the final day — and on course to win their first title since 1989.
However, despite star strikers Ronaldo and Christian Vieri being declared fit, the Nerazzurri blew a 2-1 lead to lose 4-2 defeat at Lazio, while Juve beat Udinese 2-0.
Roma — who could also have won the title had results gone their way — beat Torino 1-0 to leave Inter in THIRD place.
Conte enjoyed getting one over on Materazzi, claiming the defender acted “with little respect” in 2000.
Unamused, the ex-Everton man responded: “Conte should buy himself a new wig with his championship bonus”, in reference to the Chelsea boss’ hair transplant.
Scottish Premier League: 2002-03
Rangers went into the final day level on points with Celtic and ahead only courtesy of having scored ONE more goal.
Both sides had a genuine chance of claiming the title.
Alex McLeish’s Blues were hosting Dunfermline and took an early lead — only to be pegged back on 11 minutes.
But the hosts were 3-1 ahead by the half hour mark.
Meanwhile, Chris Sutton and Alan Thompson put Celtic 2-0 ahead at Kilmarnock with goals either side of half-time as tensions rose inside both stadiums.
However, Rangers would go on to win 6-1, meaning the Bhoys’ 4-0 victory was not enough.
AZ Alkmaar, PSV Eindhoven and Ajax were all level on 72 points going into the final day of the season.
The former, managed by Louis van Gaal, were the only ones whose destiny was in their own hands — and would have seen them become champions for the first time since 1980-81.
But an early dismissal saw them suffer a shock loss at Excelsior.
PSV beat Vitesse 5-1 and Ajax beat Willem II 2-0 with the former claiming the championship on goal difference.
Though Eindhoven side had, ironically, been hammered 5-1 at home by Ajax earlier in the season.
But won the title by one goal.
La Liga: 2006-07
David Beckham had spent four years in Spain — and only had Super Cup to show for it.
The former United winger had already confirmed he would be moving to the MLS in the summer.
Three late winners and one equaliser in four of Real’s five last games had brought them to the last day of the season level on points with Barcelona.
But with a better head-to-head record.
Barca easily dispatched of Gimnastic while Real were a goal down at home to Mallorca.
Jose Antonio Reyes’ second-half double with a Mahamadou Diarra strike sandwiched in between capped off yet another comeback as Los Blancos sealed their first title in four years.
Premier League: 2011-2
Manchester City were eight points behind rivals United in early April.
But a dramatic collapse from Fergie’s men saw the pair go into the final day level on points.
Yet, City had a +8 goal difference on United.
The Red Devils did their job as a Wayne Rooney goal saw off Sunderland.
Roberto Mancini’s men were struggling at home to QPR as the relegation candidates came from a goal down to lead despite being down to ten men.
Premier League’s other final day title deciders
In 25 years of the Premier League, the title had been decided on the final day on seven occasions, here are the other five.
“They’ve still got to go to Middlesbrough and get something — I would love it if we beat”, the famous words of Kevin Keegan.
But Newcastle’s 1-1 draw at home to Tottenham meant United were no longer obliged to, as they were champions.
However, just for good measure, they won 3-0.
An incredible season between two of the strongest sides in Premier League history came to the wire.
Arsenal beat Aston Villa 1-0, but United’s 2-1 success over Tottenham meant the title returned to Old Trafford.
Just ten days before meeting in the Champions League final, United and Chelsea still had a Premier League title to win — and thet were level on points.
The Red Devils’ 2-0 win at Wigan proved sufficient, as the Blues could only draw at home to Bolton.
All Chelsea needed to do was beat Wigan at home — and they won 8-0!
It meant United’s 4-0 win over Stoke saw them finish a point behind in second place.
Liverpool had been five points clear after beating Manchester City three games earlier, but then suffered a loss and a draw.
Manuel Pellegrini’s men beat West Ham 2-0, to win the title by two points as the Reds overcame Newcastle 2-1.
With the game over at the Stadium of Light, City poured forward and Edin Dzeko gave the fans still in the ground some hope as his 92nd minute header made it 2-2.
The match was still going and, with 95 minutes on the clock, Mario Balotelli — with only-ever assist in the sky blue of City — found Sergio Aguero, who rifled the ball past Paddy Kenny.
Cue unbelievable scenes of celebration.
La Liga: 2013-14
With the dominance of Real Madrid and Barcelona, it was going to take something special for a new name to finish first in La Liga.
Atletico were on the verge of doing just that.
Only Barca could stop them — and the pair actually met on a dramatic final at the Vicente Calderon.
Anything other than a victory for the Catalans would see Diego Simeone’s men clinch the title.
Heroic centre-back Diego Godin cancelled out Alexis Sanchez’s opener and Atletico were 2014 champions.
However, their season would be soured somewhat from a 4-1 defeat in the Champions League final to rivals Real.
