FC Barcelona: 9 Years ago today, we won over Juventus in Berlin.

“Nine years ago today, we capped off an unprecedented second treble with a Champions League final win over Juventus in Berlin”

On this day in 2015 – Barcelona became the first club in history to win two trebles with a 3-1 win over Juventus in Berlin.

The 2015 UEFA Champions League final was the final match of the 2014–15 UEFA Champions League, the 60th season of Europe’s premier club football tournament organised by UEFA, and the 23rd season since it was renamed from the European Champion Clubs’ Cup to the UEFA Champions League. It was played at the Olympiastadion in Berlin, Germany, on 6 June 2015, between Italian side Juventus and Spanish side Barcelona.

For the second time – after 2010 – both teams came into the final with the possibility of definitively winning a continental treble, having each won their national league and cup for the season. Barcelona scored the only goal of the first half after four minutes, through Ivan Rakitić. Ten minutes after the interval, Juventus equalised with a goal by Álvaro Morata. In the 68th minute, Luis Suárez put Barcelona back in the lead, and Barcelona’s win was confirmed when Neymar scored with the last kick of the game. It was Barcelona’s fifth trophy in the competition, and sealed their second treble, the other coming in 2009. It was also Juventus’ sixth defeat in a European Cup final, the most by any club, a record they previously shared with Bayern Munich and Benfica.

As winners, Barcelona earned the right to play against the winners of the 2014–15 UEFA Europa League, Sevilla, in the 2015 UEFA Super Cup, and won that match 5–4. They also qualified to enter the 2015 FIFA Club World Cup in Japan as the UEFA representative, going on to beat Argentina’s River Plate in the final.
