[SPAIN] Barcelona clinched its third straight La Liga title with two games to spare and the 21st in its 111-year history thanks to its 1-1 tie at Levante on Wednesday night. Barca was even able to rest several starters as it prepares for its final test of the 2011 season: the UEFA Champions League final against Manchester United on May 25.

The tie gives Barcelona 92 points with two games to play and ended its chances of being the first Spanish club to earn 100 points in a season. But Coach Pep Guardiola isn't complaining.

"Each league title has been tough to win,'' Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola said. "Now it is time to enjoy it.''

Guardiola rested central defender Carles Puyoland forward Pedro.

He gave French defender Eric Abidal first start since surgery on March 17 to remove a liver tumor.
