- FC Barcelona secures fourth title in Last ten Years.
- Barca won their fifth European Cup beating Juventus in Berlin.
Success is how high you bounce when you hit bottom. George S. Patton
Last December no one would have dreamed about this; we were in complete tatters, the team was disintegrating, trailing heavily in League and Europe wasn't much different. But from the start of 2015 the entire story changed and now we have completed an unprecedented second treble. No European team has ever done that. Now with this team, creating history is not such a big story, it's quite a usual stuff. This was not the vintage Barca performance, they struggled at the hands of Italian Champions at times. But then Luis Enrique has instilled a Warrior mentality in this team, a mentality which allows them to bounce back from whatever pressure that's been exerted upon them. The match started perfectly for Barca going 1-0 up very early in the match. Juventus equalised early on in the second half but as it has been this whole season - when it mattered Messi raised his game which allowed us to restore the lead. From there on there was no doubt about the outcome of the result, and Neymar's goal at the end of the match was just the icing on the cake.

Don't think that this has happened ever before - Two Teams which will line-up in the UEFA Champions League Final are both in line to win a historic treble. But in the end only one team could emerge with the treble season done, surely hope that team is wearing the famous Blaugrana jersey. Even though Barca has been seeded as the away team, UEFA has given them the permission to line-up in their home jersey. We have a poor record as an away team at the UEFA Champions League finals - losing all three. Luckily neither do Juventus, they have been one of the under-performers when it comes to European cup finals. Interestingly enough, for both the teams this would be their eighth European Cup final appearance. Barca has a better record with four wins and three loses compared to Juventus five loses and two wins. Barca has a better advantage that in the later parts of the UEFA Champions League history, they have been the most successful team. Many pundits have described this function as a clash of the Juventus defense versus the Barcelona offence, which basically is a testimony for Barca's attacking powers as Juventus front line have been in top form in Champions League.

All the highlights from FC Barcelona's Copa Del Rey triumph against Atletic Bilbao in the final on 30th May 2015.
- Lionel Messi scored one of the best goals ever scored in a cup final.
- Lionel Messi and Neymar scored in a comfortable Cup Victory for FC Barcelona.
Lionel Messi showed to the world once again Why he is considered "One of the Greatest of All Time" helping FC Barcelona secure their second title of the season. With this title victory Barca stay on course for a history repeating treble success. I don't think there has been ever an instance in Europe where two teams meeting at the final of UEFA Champions League are both with a chance to complete a historic treble. On a night which was the last appearance of one of the greatest midfielder produced by Barcelona and Spain at the Camp Nou, a bigger talent stole the show on the field. The first goal Lionel Messi scored will be remembered for ever as one of the greatest in a cup final. It wasn't like teh other two goals war simple ones, they were beautiful. But this was something else! Totally Diferent!
