Barcelona seal treble with win over Juventus

Luis Suarez and Neymar were on target as Barcelona clinched the domestic and European treble with a 3-1 win over Juventus in the Champions League final in Berlin.

Uruguayan, Suarez capped what has been a sensational 12-month turnaround after leaving last summer’s World Cup in ignominious fashion by steering in a 68th minute rebound after Gianluigi Buffon had parried Lionel Messi’s strike.

Juventus had restored parity when former Real Madrid hitman, Alvaro Morata cancelled out Ivan Rakitic’s fourth minute opener. Neymar sealed it deep into injury time when Barcelona caught Juventus on the break.

The result sees Luis Enrique’s men become the first team to win the treble twice in what has proved to be a sensational first campaign at the helm for the coach.

Barca, who had already won the Spanish title and the Copa Del Rey, won their second Treble in six years, becoming the first team to ever do it twice.
