FC Barcelona has taken home their fifth UEFA Champions League title in team history with a 3-1 victory over Juventus FC.
Although Barcelona was heavily favored to win, they received a big fight from Juventus. Barcelona scored the first goal of the game four minutes in as Ivan Rakitic scored.
Juventus held off Barcelona for the rest of the first half though, and they entered halftime trailing, 1-0. They were able to tie it later on though, as Alvaro Morata scored the game-tying goal 55 minutes in.
Luis Suarez came through for Barcelona with a goal that he was able to score due to Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon already being busy with a save.
Suarez tapped it in before his team celebrated, but the game remained close all the way to the end. Neymar appeared to have a goal scored shortly after Suarez’s.
However, the officials denied Barcelona a goal after it was discovered that Neymar’s arm touched the ball as he headed it.
After the 90-minute mark passed, the two teams were given five minutes in stoppage time. However, the stoppage time went all the way to 97 minutes.
This gave Barcelona enough time to put the final nail in Juventus’ coffin.
Neymar put his non-goal behind him and did the honors with this incredible dagger that caused him to become emotional and celebrate.
Barcelona became the first team in Champions League history to have two players score 10 goals in a single campaign, as Neymar and Lionel Messi each reached this milestone.
