Pedro, Messi and Villa clinch second Champions League crown in three years for Guardiola. Barca’s front three all got on the score-sheet as the Catalan giants saw off the English challenge to collect the trophy and seal a place in the history books.

Barcelona is the champions of Europe after producing a scintillating performance to defeat Manchester United 3-1 at Wembley Stadium on Saturday.

In what proved to be a one sided affair, Pedro gave the Catalan giants the advantage only for Wayne Rooney to cancel out his strike in the first half. In the second half, however, Lionel Messi and David Villa took center stage, adding their names to the scoresheet in an imperious win.

Barcelona clinched the famous trophy for the fourth time in its history, and its second title in three seasons.  (Source: GOAL)
