BERLIN – Thanks to a game-clinching goal from Neymar, F.C. Barcelona can add another notch to it’s already storied history, thanks to a 3-1 win over Juventus in the UEFA Champions League final.

In a game that was tight throughout,The Old Lady played the European giants from Catalonia tough, and in the process became the first-ever club to lose six Champions League finals.

After an early goal from Ivan Rakitic in the 4th minute to give Barca an early one-nil lead, the Italians would respond in kind with a equalizer from fellow Spaniard Alvaro Morata in the 55th minute.

Uruguayan talisman Luis Suarez would put Barcelona up for good with a strike in the 68th minute. Fellow South American import in the fore mentioned Brazilian striker Neymar would add the clincher in stoppage time to ensure Catalonian glory.

With the win, F.C. Barcelona becomes the first club to ever accomplish the European treble of winning the domestic league title, league cup and European title in the La Liga, Copa Del Ray and the UEFA Champions league titles in the same campaign, as they last did it in 2009.

Barca moves level with Liverpool and Bayern Munich for third all-time with five European titles, trailing AC Milan (7) and El Clasico rival Real Madrid (10).
