    A valiant Bianconeri performance isn’t enough as Barcelona seal the Champions League title with a 3-1 victory in Berlin on Saturday evening

    The Bianconeri’s European dream proved a step too far as they were defeated 3-1 by Barcelona during Saturday evening’s Champions League final in Berlin.

    Massimiliano Allegri’s side, who were looking to end a 19-year drought in the elite competition, fought valiantly after going behind to Ivan Rakitic’s opener on four minutes, officially the third-fastest goal in Champions League final history.

    Alvaro Morata gave Juventus renewed hope when he equalised at the start of the second half, sweeping home from close range for a fifth strike in his last seven European appearances.

    However, despite continuing to match the Blaugrana toe-to-toe from thereon in, Luis Enrique’s men sealed the victory with two goals from as many counter attacks courtesy of Luis Suarez and Neymar.

    Here is a closer look at the main numbers from last night’s clash of the titans:

    Three

    Chances created by Claudio Marchisio, a statistic only bettered by Barcelona’s Rakitic (four).

    Three

    Interceptions performed by Bianconeri trio Andrea Barzagli, Stephan Lichtsteiner and Arturo Vidal.

    Four

    Tackles Patrice Evra won throughout the course of the encounter. The Frenchman also pumped three crosses into the Blaugrana box.

    Five

    Saves made by Gianluigi Buffon, who also threaded seven good long balls.

    Nine

    Recoveries made by the impressive Leonardo Bonucci.

    69

    Total touches enjoyed by Andrea Pirlo, with the midfield maestro also completing 39 passes, the highest tally out of anyone in a black and white jersey.

    100

    Percentage dribble success rate for Carlos Tevez.
