Barcelona 3 – 1 Manchester United
( UEFA Champions
League Final )
UEFA Final Barcelona Victory moment
Forward Lionel Messi hailed an "incredible" performance by FC Barcelona after Josep Guardiola's men lit up Wembley en route to
claiming their fourth European crown with
victory over Manchester
United FC. For Barcelona it was their third UEFA Champions League in six seasons and it came, fittingly, at the venue where they first scaled continental football's greatest peak in 1992.
Messi produced a man-of-the- match display capped by his team's decisive second goal nine minutes after the break, restoring the Azulgrana's lead with a
long-range strike after
Wayne Rooney had
cancelled out Pedro
Rodríguez's opener. David Villa added a brilliant
third to stamp Barcelona's
position one, and confirm a repeat of their 2009 success against the English champions.
Messi said: "We're very
happy to lift another
trophy. It was a difficult
season but we showed who we are. We were the better team. To be the man of the match is the least important
thing, because it was
incredible how we played.
We were very good in all areas."
