Victory in Saturday’s final La Liga game at home to Atlectico Madrid, would have drawn them level on 89 points with the Madrid side and seen them winning the title with a head-to-head record.
They could only manage a 1-1 draw at the end which left them without major silverware for the first time in 8 years.
Barcelona also failed to reach the last four of the Champions League for the first time in 7 years after been knocked out by the same Atlectico Madrid in the quarter finals.
Atlectico Madrid is the winner of the 2013/2014 La Liga and that makes them the latest champions in Spanish.
