Barcelona beat Juventus to win UEFA Champions League

Barcelona treble fifth Champions League title 3-1 victory Italian Juventus in Berlin

Barcelona beat resilient Juventus 3-1 thanks to goals from Ivan Rakitic, Luis Suarez and Neymar who wrapped up the treble winning season for the "Blaugrana" , following the UEFA Champions League final at the Berlin Olympia stadium.

Both clubs played their eighth European Cup final and both clubs had the chance to complete the season with a treble. Yet, there can be only one winner. In the end "Barca" sealed the deal with two-second half goals after Juventus' Alvaro Morata cancelled out Ivan Raktici' s opener from the first half.

With the victory in the final, Luis Enrique completed the treble in his first season in charge. Barcelona is the first club that were able to earn three titles in one season twice, after 2009.
"Such a result is not always fair but we played a good game. We can't blame us," Juventus Turin goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffion said.

"We are very happy. I have got a unique group of players. I never thought we would win the treble but one always tries to do their best job," Barcelona coach Luis Enrique said.
