Barcelona is the new European champion. The fifth triumph in the Champions League for the Catalans. Fully deserved. Barca did not give much chance to Juventus in last night`s final, and finally just elated with the most valuable cup in club football. Four European titles in the window for nine years - more than fantastic achievement. Nobody has won so many cups for such a short time from the years of the great team of Liverpool (1977, 1978, 1981, 1984). Barca did it in the spirit of the classical format of the tournament. The team of Luis Enrique met only champions on their way to greatness in Berlin - Apoel Nicosia (Cyprus), PSG (France), Ajax (Netherlands), Manchester City (England), the second time PSG (France), Bayern Munich (Germany) and Juventus (Italy). Nobody has done anything like this since the start of the great commercialization in the Champions League before about 20 summers. For example, a year ago Real Madrid reached the final with Atletico after passing through "the little Bundesliga" in the knock out phase - Schalke, Borussia (D) and Bayern.
With the exception of the stretch of the second half, Barcelona controlled entirely finals. In the last part of Juve clash could not even need pressure with which to touch a second goal to send the game into overtime. Messi again erupted just as it was necessary for his team - subtle shot, killing Buffon and Luis Suarez foot in front of the gaping empty door. In fact it would be a miracle if the Italians had won this final. Barcelona excelled at all its rival. Pity for Gigi Buffon, who it seems will be ordered to the great players who failed to raise `Cup with the big ears. " I remember immediately Maradona, Ronaldo and Baggio.
Some say that probably the team of Barcelona in the last few years is No1 throughout the football history. Among them is even Michel Platini. It`s hard to say, of course. Jump is impossible to determine, but the achievement of Barcelona (24 trophies since 2005) is amazing and worthy of applause. However Bayern also has a number of awards for this period, but against 4 bowls of broadband of "los Kulesza" Bayern draw only 1. The success of Barcelona lies in the successes of Spain (2008, 2010, 2012).
Messi is the football God of all time? Who knows. Some are for Maradona, Pele has other support. Both supporters point to the fact that Flea has not became a world champion with Argentina. Lionel erupted in 2008/09 with 38 goals and has not fallen below 40 per season, which is impressive. Now is clear who will kiss the "Golden Ball" in winter. This will be a "ball" No5. And how much more cups for "Camp Nou" will bring the "blue-red" dominance?
