Last day of the league, and probably of VG...

After being 2-0 down, two goals from Kluivert made us draw with Celta, so Depor's 2-0 win over Espanyol brought them their Liga. Zaragoza lost 2-1 from Valencia, giving Valencia the third place, and leaving the 4th to Zaragoza. Real Madrid lost from Valladolid, and ended 5th...

So:
1. Deportivo La Coruna: 69 +22 CL
2. Barcelona: 64 +24 CLQ
3. Valencia: 64 +20 CLQ/CL (when winning CL)
4. Zaragoza: 63 +20 UC/CLQ (if Valencia wins the CL)
5. Real Madrid: 62 +10 UC/CL (when winning CL)
6. Alaves: 61 +4 UC

Espanyol did not want that 1.2 million tip afterall, but it was all class by Derpotivo and especially Roy Makaay

Does the team that finishes 2nd have to qualify to play in the CL?

No, the 2nd place team doesn't have to qualify for the CL. So Barca is automatic. According to Marca (Spanish sports daily), Van Gaal has given his resignation (not a surprise) and also Luis Figo is probably going to leave Barca. He is said to be seriously considering the offer from Milan. A shame, but if he doesn't want to be in Barcelona than good riddance.

No, the #2 isn't qualified yet for CL. Spain has two qualified places, and two places for the qualifying matches. Because the winner of the CL will be Spanish, one of the two "direct" places will go to either Valencia or Madrid. The other place is for Deportivo. It would be pretty insane, 5 Spanish teams in CL, wouldn't it?
At least, this is what was said on Dutch TV by Johan Cruijff...

Phew :)
I was getting worried there for awhile. lol
Barca are just the kind of team to lose to some Slovenian champions or something because we don't concentrate enough. hehe
Remember AIK Solna anyone?
We were lucky to not lose that first match.
