Barcelona has claimed its 5th European Cup crown and a second treble after beating Juventus 3-1 on Saturday night at Olympiastadion.  At just 4 minutes into the first half, Rakitic put Barcelona up 1-0 before the former Real Madrid player Morota made it 1-1 after the break.

Luis Suarez made it 2-1 for Barcelona at 68 minutes in what looked liked the winning goal before Neymar’s goal was cancelled due to a hand brush. But the Brazillian made it 3-1 deep into the dying seconds of added time to claim the trophy. There was little action from favourite Lionel Messi.

Celebrations and awarding of the trophy is underway at Olympiastadion
