Spanish Club Barcelona have emerged the winners of the 2015 UEFA Champions League following their 3-1 win over Juventus in Berlin’s Olympiastadion on Saturday night.
Goals from Luis Suarez and later on from Neymar saw Barcelona edge out Juventus who had earlier fell to a 4th minute strike from Rakatic.
Rakitic gave the Catalan giants the early lead with barely four minutes of action, and while Alvaro Morata did get an equaliser later on in the second half for the Old Lady, Suarez who had been denied on a number of occasions by Buffon finally registered his name on the scorer’s sheet in the 68th minute.
While Neymar was first denied a chance of giving Barcelona a third goal on the night, the Brazilian still made his presence count with a goal deep into stoppage time to end the game 3-1
The win sees Luis Enrique’s men going on to complete their treble chase having won the La Liga and Copa del Rey earlier.
The victory in Berlin sees Barca effectively add another Champions League trophy to their spilling cabinet.
Barcelona are now the first team in history to complete the treble on two separate occasion.
