Following a glitzy trophy presentation, Xavi is hoisted aloft by teammates as he parades his fourth Champions League trophy in front of the media and his adoring supporters.

On that note, we bid you a fond farewell. Thanks for joining us throughout the course of the 2014/15 season.

Join us again tomorrow for a report of England's friendly against the Republic of Ireland in Dublin.


Juventus, winners of four consecutive Serie A crowns, deserve credit for largely resisting that early onslaught and making a real contest of it for most of the second 45.

Ultimately, they fell just short against a superior outfit and a domestic double still represents a good first season for Allegri.

You suspect, like Barcelona, they will be back.


A fifth European Cup triumph and a second treble overall for Barcelona. Despite their enviable array of star talent, such an achievement appeared very unlikely just a few short months ago.

A fitting way for one of the all-time midfield greats in Xavi to sign off his career with the Catalans and the best possible riposte to those who have not been shy in their criticism of Luis Enrique over recent months.


Wild celebrations from the Barcelona players as Juventus are left to ponder what might have been following a spirited second-half display.

The camera pans to a tearful Pirlo as Alves and Neymar struggle to contain their delirium.


Barcelona have won the Champions League



Juventus 1-3 Barcelona


That, as they say, is that.

Juventus pour forward in search of that elusive second equaliser, leaving them vulnerable to the counter. Barcelona clear their lines and Neymar is left with the freedom of Berlin to race forward and pick his spot at the far post beyond Buffon.

The final whistle sounds.


Goal: Juventus 1-3 Barcelona (Neymar)


Pedro is on for the final few seconds as Suarez slowly proceeds towards the touchline. Surely no way back for Juventus now as the clock ticks past the 95-minute mark.


Ter Stegen has looked uncertain at times tonight, but he holds a curled shot from Tevez with little issue.

Suarez is on the floor again following a tussle with Lichtsteiner.


Jeremy Mathieu trots on for Rakitic as Barcelona look to make sure of victory.

The Croatian has adapted excellently to a new role during his first season at the club and his goal tonight is a fitting reward for a sizeable and often underrated contribution.


Evra is now receiving treatment after appearing to roll his ankle under pressure from Alves and Rakitic. The 34-year-old is quickly replaced by Kingsley Coman.

Another sweet strike from Marchisio is turned behind for a corner by Ter Stegen. Five minutes of added time signalled - can Juventus find an equaliser?


Suarez is down in a heap after falling awkwardly on his knee in the aftermath of a foul from Bonucci. The Uruguayan limps off gingerly.


A real chance for Pique to extend Barcelona's lead but the centre-back snatches at his shot and it soars over.

Xavi, by the way, has now moved ahead of compatriot and fellow World Cup winner Iker Casillas to become the leading appearance holder in this competition.

A late roll of the dice from Allegri as Morata is replaced by Fernando Llorente.


Opportunities coming along rather quickly now as another formidable Barcelona break is thwarted by a foul on Neymar before Pogba heads narrowly over from a corner.

Xavi is on for his final Barcelona appearance and 151st overall in the Champions League. Long-time teammate and friend Iniesta makes way.

Roberto Pereyra replaces Vidal for Juventus, meanwhile.


Barcelona players protested furiously against that decision, but the ball definitely took a hefty deflection off the Brazilian's hand before rolling into the net. It remains to be seen if that incident will have any bearing on the result.

After being sucker-punched against the run of play, Juventus create a moment of uncertainty as Ter Stegen flounders badly from a corner with Evra close by.


Ruthless from Barcelona. They are level for just 15 minutes before Buffon parries Messi's shot and Suarez makes no mistake from the rebound to restore a one-goal lead.

Neymar then looks to have put the result beyond any doubt with 20 minutes remaining but his headed effort is controversially disallowed by the officials for handball.

Morata's goal has given Juventus such belief.

Pogba is incensed not to have been awarded a penalty after being held back by Alves as he sought to spin and shoot inside the area. The French midfielder pounds the turf in irritation as play continues.


Juventus are really beginning to build confidence now with Morata the catalyst.

Shortly after notching the equaliser, he rises above Gerard Pique to head over and is then involved in a passing move that culminates in Marchisio teeing up Tevez for a shot that goes just over.

Pogba is next to test Ter Stegen, but his effort from distance is comfortably held.


Despite having been pushed further on the backfoot since the second half began, Juventus draw level through a former Real Madrid striker and 2014 Champions League winner.

A clever backheel from Marchisio releases Lichtsteiner down the right before the latter passes inside for Tevez.

His quick shot is then parried by Ter Stegen, but Morata is on hand to sweep home the rebound as the noise level inside Olympiastadion rises exponentially.

That is the Spaniard's fifth strike in the Champions League so far this season. He previously scored important goals against both Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid.
