MADRID, May 20 (Reuters) - Barcelona striker Samuel Eto'o crowned a memorable season by finishing as the Primera Liga's top marksman with 26 goals as he scored in his side's 3-1 defeat at Athletic Bilbao on Saturday.
The Cameroon international missed out on the honour last year when Villarreal's Diego Forlan pipped him at the post on the last day of the season.
Eto'o, who also scored in Wednesday's 2-1 Champions League final win over Arsenal, started the day level with Valencia's David Villa on 25 goals.
He netted after 36 minutes to put his weakened side ahead in their rescheduled last game of the season though the Basques scored three times after the break to take the points.
The European and Spanish champions finished their league campaign on 82 points, 12 clear of second-placed Real Madrid. After a season spent fighting against relegation Bilbao climbed to 12th.
