Key stats: Juventus 1-3 Barcelona

Sports Mole takes a closer look back at Barcelona's 3-1 victory over Juventus in Berlin last night, with the aid of a selection of statistics.

Barcelona saw off Juventus in Berlin last night to claim their fifth Champions League crown, while also securing an impressive domestic league, cup and European treble at the same time.

On their way to doing so, the Catalan club broke a string of records, while their Italian opponents also helped make history during the 3-1 reverse.

Here, Sports Mole picks out an array of statistics from the showpiece final at the Olympiastadion.

Barcelona's win took them level with Real Madrid in claiming the Champions League for a fourth time; each of those title successes coming in the past decade.

The Catalan club have now been victorious in four of their five Champions League final appearances, whereas opponents Juventus have lost four of their five finals.

Furthermore, Barca have won each of their last four final appearances - 2006, 2009, 2011 and 2015 - while Juve have lost each of their last four following their solitary triumph back in 1996.

Neymar scored his 10th goal of the competition last night, taking him level with Cristiano Ronaldo and teammate Lionel Messi as joint-top scorers - meaning that three players share the accolade for just the second time in the 23 years since its inception.

It is the first time that a player other than Messi or Ronaldo has headed the top-scorer charts - either jointly or alone - since Kaka did so in 2006-07.

Barcelona icon Xavi made his final appearance for the club, taking his all-time tally on the European stage to 151 matches - the most by any player. He had been level with compatriot Iker Casillas prior to last night's outing.

Luis Enrique's charges have now also featured in 74 knockout stage fixtures, taking them level with Real Madrid in doing so.

Barcelona became the first side to win the Champions League, domestic title and domestic cup treble on more than one occasion, following on from an identical feat back in 2008-09.

Enrique, like Pep Guardiola before him, claimed a treble in his first season as the club's head coach.

Ivan Rakitic's strike inside four minutes was the third fastest in a Champions League final, after Paolo Maldini's first-minute effort for AC Milan in 2005 and Gaizka Mendieta's third-minute penalty for Valencia in 2001.

Juve striker Alvaro Morata is the first player to score for a foreign team against a club from his own country in the fixture's history.

Both teams have now found the net in each of the past five Champions League finals, which is the longest ever such run for the showpiece event.

In all, 361 goals were scored throughout the competition, leaving this season one short of 2013-14's tally. Furthermore, the figure of 2.89 goals-per-game is the third highest in the 23 years of the competition, with the best rate being 2.94 set in 2012-13.
