      CORNER! That's the last thing Juventus needed as a mesmerizing drive forward from Messi on the counter allows him to play Neymar through. The Brazilian tries to play a return pass, but it's blocked behind by Barzagli for a corner - and now Barcelona will make their final change to run more precious

      STRAIGHT AT TER STEGEN! You can hardly fault Tevez for trying, because he is more than capable, but the Argentine ignores the teammates to his left as he tries to go for goal himself from 25-yards out, but sends a shot safely into the waiting arms of Ter Stegen.

      UP GOES THE TROPHY! Xavi leads the celebration, a fitting end to his Barcelona career. A moment to savour for these players who put so much effort into this season to secure a treble which has eluded many of the best clubs in history. It's Barcelona's night in Berlin!

      Juventus are certainly still in this game. There is no need for them to change their tactics with 45 minutes still remaining for them to find an equalizer.

      Luis Enrique also has a poor record against Juventus, as well as Allegri. The current Barcelona boss lost twice and drew once against the Bianconeri when he was in charge of Roma in 2011/12.

      Much has been made about Massimiliano Allegri’s poor record against Barcelona as a coach (W1, D3, L4). Stats like this can be thrown out the window, in my opinion.

      Only seven teams have won the treble in history and no club has ever done so twice – an opportunity presenting itself to the Blaugrana here today.

      For me, the key figure in the match is Patrice Evra. It seems ridiculous to put the spotlight on such a player, with all due respect to the Frenchman, in a match filled with some of the best players in the world - but he could well hold the key to the Bianconeri’s hopes of pulling the upset.

      After such a positive start for Juventus, it is just incredible to see how calm Barcelona were to react.

      The chances are coming fast and furious for Barcelona. A well-worked corner kick, straight from the training ground, sees Rakitic roll a pass into the box to pick out the run of Alba, but the left-back lifts his shot over the bar. Danger averted, for now.

      VITAL INTERVENTION! Great counter-attacking play from Juventus. Suarez is dispossessed atop the penalty area and Pirlo turns well before starting Tevez forward.

      Vidal seriously needs to cool his jets. Someone has to go over and speak to him before it's too late.

      The pace has fizzled out significantly and we have entered a bit of a cagey period. Successive fouls committed by Juventus allow Barcelona to keep possession, but the Bianconeri back line has looked much more comfortable as they are unquestionably settled into the match now.

      Barcelona seem to be playing a little bit too relaxed with just the one-goal lead. Juventus have certainly been playing well, but they need to find a bit more inventiveness in attack.

      PENALTY? Tevez holds off the challenge of Pique before rolling a ball into the path of Pogba who bursts into the area.

      Well, scoreline aside, Juventus have to be given the upper hand with how they have taken over in the last 10 minutes.

      Messi is coming to life again as we enter the final five minutes of the first half. He does well to dribble his way through midfield, fending off a challenge before Pogba is finally forced to tug his shirt from behind to stop the move. That's always going to be a yellow card.

      WHO'S THERE?! Neymar continues to run rampant on the left, reading the play well to pounce on the ball and deliver a cross into the centre where Suarez is waiting unmarked. The delivery is too high for the Uruguay international to get a head to, but it rolls toward the far post invitingly - only no

      Wonderful defending from Bonucci! Messi makes another one of his dazzling runs into the area, eluding the challenge of two defenders.

    • 47'
      Barcelona start the second half on the front foot, buoyed by Messi's wonderful run into the area. No one changes pace quite like him. He eludes a challenge and slides a pass into the feet of Suarez, but the striker is smother by four Juventus defenders before he fumbles the ball out of play.

      SPECTACULAR FROM BUFFON! Following a Juventus corner, Barcelona break on a promising counter attack, five against three.

    • 59'
      This is a very important period for both teams now, as is always the case after a goal is scored. Juventus smell blood, but they have to be careful not to leave themselves exposed at the back, while Barcelona desperately need to regain their composure and get back to dictating the tempo.
    • 61'
      BACK AND FORTH THEY GO! A tremendous ball forward from Pirlo presents Pogba with a chance, but a few too many passes from Juventus see the attack fizzle out. Barcelona break swiftly on the counter, but again the final ball is lacking as Buffon watches the ball roll safely behind for a goal kick.

      INCHES AWAY! He has 29 goals already this season and Tevez nearly adds to that tally here! Juventus have a real spring in their step following Morata's equalizer and you get the sense that the belief is really growing in their squad. The Argentine takes a pass atop the area and drives a shot at goal

      RELENTLESS PRESSURE! It's all Juventus now as we approach the 70-minute mark! Barcelona seem shell-shocked and the Bianconeri are taking advantage. Their latest foray into attack presents Pogba with a shooting chance atop the area, but his strike bounces safely into the arms of Ter Stegen.

      This is worrying for Barcelona! Lionel Messi was left moving quite gingerly following their last attack at the one-hour mark, and he's being battered and bruised every time he gets the ball now.

    • 76'
      Juventus have to be very, very careful here. Pique sprints half the length of the pitch following a corner as Barcelona attack via the counter. The chance fizzles out, but pressure is kept on by Neymar who wins his side a free kick in a very dangerous position from less than 25-yards out to the left

      Third goal or not, Barcelona are looking very comfortable as they try and see this lead through to the final whistle.
