FC Barcelona stamped their authority very early with a 3rd min goal from Ratikic after a magnificent build up that caught the Italians by surprise. It looked at this stage that it would be a Barça whitewash but the Italians showed progressively why they made the final. Grinding away & perhaps catching out an "over confident" Barça, Juventus managed to put its Football together & create danger, especially Morata who was active.

The second half saw Juventus FC continue with its good Football & began complicating things for Barcelona. The equalizer came in the 54th min when Morata got hold of a Tevez shot deflected which put the Italians on a roll. The next 8 minutes would be the worst period for Barça as Juventus created chances but failed to convert. There was a controversial & decisive moment when Pogba was fouled by Alves in the goal square that the referee did not call penalty. It was a clear penalty , & the Italians may well be upset, but the referee also did not call a hand-ball penalty in the 1ºst half by Lichsteiner & he may well have decided to even things.

Barça then got things back under control when things were worst with a deadly counter-attack that caught Juventus bad footed. It was Luis Suarez who scored the second in the 67th min & this was a moral blow for the Italians. Juventus never really recovered from this goal as they saw how their "Golden moment" slipped by without taking full advantage of the occasion.

Juventus attempted to find the equalizer putting Fernando Llorente upfront for the long balls, but again a deadly counter-attack caught off their position the Italians & Pedro found Neymar who sealed it with the third in the 96th min. Referee then blew the end.
