Barca celebrate title with Espanyol win
MADRID, May 6 (Reuters) - Barcelona celebrated winning their second successive Primera Liga title in front of their own fans by beating city rivals Espanyol 2-0 in the Nou Camp on Saturday.
The Champions League finalists reclaimed the title away to Celta Vigo on Wednesday, but were in no mood to help out their relegation-threatened neighbours.
Espanyol defender Daniel Jarque scored an own goal after 20 minutes and Ronaldinho doubled the lead soon after the break as his side cruised to victory.
Barcelona moved on to 82 points, 13 ahead of second-placed Real Madrid who play Villarreal in the Bernabeu on Sunday.
Kings Cup winners Espanyol remained 15th with 38 points, two above the relegation zone with two games left.
UEFA Cup finalists Sevilla secured a comfortable 2-0 win over relegated Malaga, that put them fifth on 62 points.
Brazilian midfielder Renato scored the opener after 18 minutes with a 25-metre drive and Fernando Sales rounded off the win in the 90th minute with a goal on the break.
Later on Saturday Valencia, in third on 68 points, can climb above Real if they beat Atletico Madrid at home.
