94’
They'll party long into the night in London and back home in Spain. Faced with the current Premier League champions, a team with apparently no weaknesses and managed by one of the most successful bosses in history, Barcelona coasted, absolutely coasted to victory. The gap between them and the rest is monumental. It's been a pleasure to witness and the plaudits could go on all summer, but in summary it's best just to say that Barcelona are hugely deserving of the 2011 Champions League crown. That's your lot from us at Wembley where it's finished, Barcelona 3 Manchester United 1.
94’
Sheer jubilation for Barcelona, who can now officially be classed as one of the greatest teams of all time. Three Champions League titles in six seasons is some record, and they'll be odds-on to repeat their triumph next year. Guardiola leads the way and in a wonderful, heartwarming touch Eric Abidal, who has been to hell and back in just two months, is at the back with the captain's armband on. And the Frenchman lifts the trophy! What an unforgettable moment.
94’
Fergie looks quite accepting of what he's just seen actually. He shakes all the suits' hands and gives them a rueful smile. The last person these guys want to meet is Nick Clegg, but there he is, next to Platini. Why? Mental.
94’
Barcelona give United a guard of honour as the losing team makes its way up the very long line of steps. Sir Alex leads the side ahead of Rooney. They all look absolutely shell-shocked. They were passed to death.
94’
The thoughts of United defender Rio Ferdinand. "We could have played better in parts but on the whole they were the better team, so you can't really argue. On these ocasions you need to defend well at all times and tonight on a couple of occasions we got caught."
94’
Fergie affords Guardiola a smile and a firm handshake as the Barca celebrations begin. For the fourth time in their history, and the third time in six seasons, they are European champions. And in truth the 3-1 victory tonight was hugely emphatic, in fact the scoreline flattered United, who were very much second best from the tenth minute onwards. Xavi, Iniesta and Messi effortlessly worked their magic and, Rooney's moment of genius aside, United failed to stem the flow of relentless attacks. Barcelona defended brilliantly too, and in big numbers, denying United any prolonged spell of meaningful pressure. Sir Alex, who was livid with how his team gifted Barca their third goal, looked almost a broken man as the final minutes passed by. Helpless as to how to stop the unmovable object and irresistable force that is Barcelona.
94’
It's all over - Barcelona have won the 2011 Champions League.
94’
End of the game.
93’
Afellay's low right-footed effort is going to hit the target, but the keeper gets down low to his right.
92’
Another standing ovation, this time for opening goalscorer Pedro who is replaced by Ibrahim Afellay.
91’
Iniesta nearly adds the icing on the cake with a first-time lob towards goal from 30 yards, which comes up slightly short.
91’
Just the three minutes left to play out at Wembley.
91’
Van der Sar opts to catch, claiming the ball with ease.
90’
Pedro gives away a free-kick, but the game keeps flowing as they opt to take it short.
90’
Last-chance saloon as Evra sends a cross over everyone's head. It's far too little, far too late for United, who can have no complaints about this defeat.
88’
Carlos Puyol is afforded a token appearance in place of Dani Alves. Yes it really is that comfortable for Barca.
88’
Rooney gives away a free-kick, but the game keeps flowing as they opt to take it short.
87’
Valencia, already booked, tests Kassai's patience as he catches Busquets. The Hungarian keeps his card in his pocket, even is Busquets predictably makes a three course meal of the situation.
86’
Scorer of Barcelona's third goal, David Villa, is replaced by Seydou Keita.
86’
Valdes is booked for time wasting. Fair enough really, he was.
85’
Manchester United's Nani tries a low drive with his left foot, but it goes wide of the right upright.
85’
Rooney, given an all-too rare opportunity to run at Barca from deep, sprays wide to Nani who cuts inside and sends a left-footed dribbler past the post. Not quite.
84’
Park gives away a free-kick, but the game keeps flowing as they opt to take it short.
84’
A moment of hope as Hernandez controls in a good position inside the box, but Valdes races from his line to clear.
83’
Michael Owen remains sat on the bench. Surely it's kitchen sink time now.
83’
Vidic gives away a free-kick, but the game keeps flowing as they opt to take it short.
81’
Meanwhile Antonio Valencia has gone into Kassai's notebook for persistent fouling.
81’
Giggs gives away a free-kick, but the game keeps flowing as they opt to take it short.
80’
You've got to feel sorry for Michel Platini. He spends his days and week stalking the corridors of power, attending endless meetings and making tough decisions. Tonight he just wants to relax and enjoy a game of football with the great and the good, but by some quirk of fate he's been sat next to Nick Clegg.
80’
Ryan Giggs is convinced that David Villa handles as he clips the ball up from the floor, on the left of the area. It does touch Villa's hand but it's not deliberate.
79’
Valencia gives away a free-kick, but the game keeps flowing as they opt to take it short.
79’
United are doing what they can, getting more men forward and enjoying more possession in midfield.
78’
No signs of a famous comeback yet. Barcelona are toying with United, effortlessly keeping possession.
76’
It's now or never for United. Paul Scholes is given 13 minutes to change the game, with Michael Carrick hauled off. Just like in 2009 Carrick has been totally outclassed.
75’
Nani tries to conjure something from nothing down the right, but there are too many red and blue shirts for company.
74’
A Barcelona fourth looks more likely than a United second. Mess plays to the unmarked Xavi in the area but he can't control.
72’
Again Carrick's touch is far too heavy, this time in an attacking sense as his pass to Valencia in the area is too hot to handle.
71’
Rooney attempts a right-footed high drive, but it flies high and wide to the left.
71’
Rooney with a curling riposte of his own but he can't quite find the top corner. A comeback from here would be up there with 1999 standards, or the 2005 class of Liverpool.
69’
Barcelona's Xavi takes a corner out on the right.
69’
You don't need me to say it. Messi jinks into the area from the right flank, but is crowded out. United then only have themselves to blame as a heavy Carrick touch isn't controlled by Nani - Busquets takes advantage and plays to DAVID VILLA who takes a touch and curls magnificently past Van der Sar from 20 yards. Wonderful finish - no blame attached to the keeper this time.
69’
Here comes the first change. Fabio, who picked up a knock a minute ago, is replaced by Nani. Valencia to right back, presumably.
68’
Wave after wave of relentless attacks. United are ball-watching, but have little option to do anything else.
68’
If Barcelona score here I'm going to say 'it had been coming'. The signs are ominous.
67’
Messi plays an inadvertent one-two off Carrick's legs before playing to Pedro. There are about eight United players on the edge of the area and they charge towards Iniesta, who is teed up for a 25-yard spank which Van der Sar does well to get behind.
67’
Van der Sar opts to catch, claiming the ball with ease.
67’
Barcelona's Xavi curls in an inswinging corner from out on the left.
66’
They're turning the screw now. Xavi let fly from 25-yards and Van der Sar, at full stretch, tips wide for a corner.
66’
Van der Sar dives full stretch and punches the ball away.
65’
Too cute this time, too cute. Alves makes a marvellous overlap on the right of the box - he's all alone and cuts inside to Messi, whose flick from six yards with the outside of his right boot is easily blocked ahead of Van der Sar.
65’
Messi's right-footed back-heeled shot is going to hit the target and the keeper claims the ball with ease.
63’
Messi's low left-footed effort is going to hit the target, but the keeper gets down low to his left.
63’
A goal here and it'd be curtains for Fergie. Messi finds half a yard to test Van der Sar from the left of the area, and the Dutchman saves with his legs.
62’
Thirteen attempts to two, in Barca's favour of course, reads the statometer. United need some more Rooney-based inspiration.
61’
Carrick gives away a free-kick, but the game keeps flowing as they opt to take it short.
61’
Carrick hammers into Iniesta as Barca breaks and earns a very deserving booking.
61’
There are five white shirts in the box from a rare United attack but Giggs, disappointingly, can't beat the first man with his cross. A real waste.
60’
Dani Alves is late on the marauding Patrice Evra and earns the first booking of the evening from referee Viktor Kassai.
60’
Alves gives away a free-kick, but the game keeps flowing as they opt to take it short.
59’
Valencia gives away a free-kick, but the game keeps flowing as they opt to take it short.
58’
Manchester United's Valencia is caught offside.
57’
Barcelona's Abidal is caught offside.
57’
So how long does Sir Alex allow this to continue before utilising his bench? His players will soon be mentally and physically shattered from chasing Messi and co round all evening. Darren Fletcher could exert some much-needed control, while Antonio Valencia's impact has been minimal on the counter so surely Nani is a favourable option?
56’
Valencia gives away a free-kick, but the game keeps flowing as they opt to take it short.
55’
Manchester United's Chicharito is caught offside.
55’
United's intensity levels, defensive-wise, dipped in the few minutes before that goal and it has cost them. You just can't give this team room outside the box.
54’
On the world's biggest stage the world's best football player comes to life. Iniesta slots to LIONEL MESSI who, as with Xavi for Barca's first, is given the freedom of Wembley to amble towards the box, before unleashing an unstoppable low drive into Van der Sar's bottom left corner.
53’
Barcelona's Xavi takes a corner out on the left.
52’
Evra does well to get in a block.
52’
Alves's low right-footed effort is going to hit the target, but the keeper gets down low to his right.
52’
Barca overswamp United and Alves, the right back, is free on the right of the area. He picks his spot but Van der Sar is up to the task, pushing firmly clear. Messi then sees his shot blocked by the big keeper. Big pressure from the Spaniards but United hold firm.
51’
Chicharito gives away a free-kick, but the game keeps flowing as they opt to take it short.
49’
Park gives away a free-kick, but the game keeps flowing as they opt to take it short.
49’
Rooney bounces into the box, bustling past Pique, but Mascherano helps his central defensive partner out and wins a goal kick off the United striker.
48’
Pique gives away a free-kick, but the game keeps flowing as they opt to take it short.
48’
Vidic, superb all evening, gets in ahead of Pique to crucially clear from inside his own six yard box. The Serb was fouled in the process.
48’
Barcelona's Xavi takes a corner out on the right.
47’
Vidic does well to get in a block, although replays suggest that the ball would have gone on to miss the target in any case.
47’
Busquets dummies a pass to Iniesta whose 30-yard lash is blocked. All this came from a Barcelona corner, which was merely worked around the area. And now Carrick blocks Xavi's shot. Barcelona have carried on where they left off.
47’
Vidic does well to get in a block, although replays suggest that the ball would have gone on to miss the target in any case.
46’
Barcelona's Xavi takes a corner out on the right.
46’
Barcelona get the ball rolling again. Both teams are unchanged.
46’
An utterly enthralling half of football draws to a close with the scores locked at one apiece. United began like a house on fire before Barcelona settled effortlessly into their stride, taking United apart piece by piece and going into a deserved lead through Pedro. Rooney's equaliser, as surprising as it was wonderfully executed, has resulted in the second half looking very interesting indeed.
43’
Villa sends in a driven cross from the right, which goes directly out of play.
43’
Messi wriggles free of Vidic in the centre circle and bounds forward, playing to Villa, who guides a return pass into the six yard box where Messi is fractions away from connecting. Ferdinand may have put him off, but that was mighty close to 2-1.
43’
Villa gives away a free-kick, but the game keeps flowing as they opt to take it short.
42’
Thirty-five yard free kick for Barca and they turn on the cute stuff. Xavi plays to Busquets who sends a first-time pass into the area for Pedro, who is a tad too strong. United were seeing stars.
41’
Valencia gives away a free-kick, but the game keeps flowing as they opt to take it short.
40’
Giggs sends Park down the right flank with a chipped pass, but it's over-hit and the remarkable Eric Abidal shepherds the ball out for a goal kick.
39’
And now Carrick gets in a sliding tackle on Xavi at the right moment. United's pecker is up again and they're playing with purpose, like in the first 10 minutes. Iniesta slams a hopeful long-ranger into Van der Sar's arms.
39’
Iniesta's outswinging right-footed effort is going over the bar, but is plucked out of the air by the keeper.
37’
Xavi, this time closed down by United's midfielder, lifts one over the bar from 20 yards.
37’
Xavi attempts a right-footed outswinging shot, but it flies high and wide to the right.
36’
Valencia gives away a free-kick, but the game keeps flowing as they opt to take it short.
35’
Never has the maxim goals change games been more apt. Barcelona's advantage may have been one goal but they were running away with the trophy. Rooney has set the place alight - United's fans are making one heck of a noise.
34’
That's how you shift momentum! Right out of the blue United are level and it's WAYNE ROONEY who comes up with a peach of an equaliser. Ferdinand and Fabio win the ball from a Barcelona throw down the left - it's worked to Rooney who aims for the area, plays a give and go with Giggs and curls beautifully and calmly past Valdes from the edge of the box. What a moment - just as the final seemed to be slipping from their grasp.
33’
Something has got to change for United. They're being overrun and outpassed and seem unable to shift the momentum.
32’
Giggs gives away a free-kick, but the game keeps flowing as they opt to take it short.
32’
Giggs, off the pace so far, is late with a trip on Messi. It's pretty much the first foul of what has been a cleanly-fought contest.
31’
Alves gives away a free-kick.
31’
The next 14 minutes is crucial to United's hopes. A second goal could be curtains and Fergie will be desperate to sort his charges out at half time with a bit of hairdryer treatment.
30’
Barcelona's Alves right-footed effort flies high and wide to the right.
29’
Carrick does well to get in a block, although replays suggest that the ball would have gone on to miss the target in any case.
29’
It's not sticking with Hernandez or Rooney up front and the latter is showing signs of frustration already. Giggs and Carrick aren't imposing themselves enough here. Darren Fletcher is badly missed.
28’
Valencia gives away a free-kick, but the game keeps flowing as they opt to take it short.
27’
No surprises here - Barcelona take a deserved lead. Xavi is criminally given far too much room as he shuffles forward towards the area unchallenged - he slips to PEDRO who drives into the corner from 15 yards. They make it look so easy, Barca, but United's defending wasn't up to scratch there. Carrick had gone walkabout.
26’
Fabio ambles forward to support Valencia for the first time, but Barcelona get back in big numbers and the pair have nowhere to go. That's why they're the best team in the world - they can defend almost as well as they can attack.
25’
Rooney's pass infield to Giggs is loose and Villa nips in - he finds Messi who is denied by another last-dtich tackle, this time from Ferdinand. Barcelona are one perfect pass away from making it 1-0.
24’
The game pattern is well and truly set now. Barcelona are controlling the ball in midfield and concentration is all-important for the Red Devils now. As is organisation.
22’
That is absolutely superb from Nemanja Vidic. Xavi sends Messi careering into the area and the big Serb must - must - get his challenge right or Messi is through on goal. He does, and how. The United fans love it. Mascherano then does the same to Rooney down the other end as United try and relieve the pressure on the counter.
21’
Villa's low right-footed effort is going to hit the target, but the keeper gets down low to his left.
21’
United aren't keeping the ball well enough. They're forgetting the golden rule of not gifting Barca possession. Villa, on the right of the area, tests Van der Sar with a snap-shot which the Dutchman does well to hold.
21’
Manchester United's Chicharito mistimes his run and looks across to see the linesman's flag raised.
20’
If the first 10 minutes belonged to United, the next 10 has been all Barcelona. But you get the feeling this spell might be longer-lasting. David Villa is inches away from giving them the lead with a 20-yard whistler past Van der Sar's left-hand post.
20’
Barcelona's Villa unleashes a right-footed low drive, but it goes wide of the right post.
18’
United have retreated into two banks of four and Barcelona are now dictating play, searching for those defence-splitting through balls.
16’
After Alves beats Park to a cross-field ball, United lose their shape for the first time and Barca very nearly take advantage. The ball is sprayed wide to Xavi whose low cross sees Pedro nip ahead of Ferdinand and poke wide from six yards. A very good chance, although he was slightly off balance when he hit it. No excuses though - it should be 1-0.
16’
Barcelona's Pedro right-footed effort goes wide of the right upright.
14’
They're showing signs of settling down now, though. The official 'home' team enjoy a spell of possession in the United half.
13’
Barcelona's performance in the opening 13 minutes has been littered with errors. Most unlike them, but United haven't been able to take advantage yet.
13’
Manchester United's Chicharito fails to beat the offside trap and looks across to see the linesman's flag raised.
11’
Barcelona's Xavi takes a corner out on the left.
11’
It's worked short and played round the houses to Iniesta, whose dink into the area comes to nothing.
11’
First sign of Barca as an attacking threat. Messi looks up and slots to Villa in the box, before Ferdinand slides in with a dominant challenge to concede a corner.
11’
Vidic does well to get in a block, although replays suggest that the ball would have gone on to miss the target in any case.
10’
Would the real Barcelona please stand up? Messi gives away possession now and from a low Giggs through ball Pique doesn't realise Valdes is so close and plays a very heavy back-pass which the keeper instantly rebounds clear. Hairy moment for the Spaniard's.
8’
Valdes gets there in the nick of time to clear ahead of Rooney from Van der Sar's launched kick, which dropped over Mascherano's head.
7’
Manchester United's Chicharito fails to beat the offside trap and looks across to see the linesman's flag raised.
7’
And now Villa loses possession, outnumbered by white shirts. It's as if Fergie has been keeping his players in cages, depriving them of food and water, and unleashed them 10 minutes ago telling them Barcelona's players had beef and orange juice. They're just not letting them rest.
6’
Manchester United's Chicharito mistimes his run and looks across to see the linesman's flag raised.
5’
United look sharp - this is a very promising start. Rooney and Hernandez link up nicely before the attack breaks down.
5’
First spell of possession for Barca, greeted with boos by the United contingent.
4’
Fabio gives away a free-kick, but the game keeps flowing as they opt to take it short.
3’
Pique does well to get in a block, although replays suggest that the ball would have gone on to miss the target in any case.
3’
Hernandez slides in on Busquets with the midfielder hesitating inches outside his own box. The Mexican takes a return pass before seeing a shot blocked. Very purposeful start for the English side.
2’
Carrick strikes the ball straight at Busquets' head. Kerpow! The Spaniard is dazed but okay to continue.
2’
And now Mascherano slices the ball out of play. Barcelons - nervous? There's a first.
1’
Park earns a roar for nipping at the heels of Alves and winning back possession for an early attack. Valdes claims Rooney's cross.
1’
Rooney and Hernandez get the ball rolling for Manchester United.
0’
Vidic and Xavi swap pendants (anyone know what happens to those?) and pleasantries, before Guardiola and Fergie enjoy a warm embrace, complete with smiles. That won't last long.
0’
Games and atmospheres often don't do this magnificent stadium justice (although the thousands of prawn sandwiches eaters don't held). Fingers crossed, tonight will.
0’
No Champions League encounter would be the same without what has, with years of relentless ear-bashing, become quite a hair-raising and now traditional Champions League anthem. I couldn't tell you who wrote or performed it, but it's got something about it hasn't it?
0’
United, as the away team, are in their white away kit with black shorts. Wembley looks resplendent.
0’
The weeks of hyperbole - the teams are on the field and Barcelona v Manchester United is about to begin.
0’
The atmosphere is building nicely inside Wembley, which is nearly full already. A feast of football awaits, folks.
0’
It's been suggested that tonight is the perfect time for United to face Barcelona, with the Spaniard's looking a little jaded in recent weeks. That may be clutching at straws, but they certainly seem to have lost their exuberance and sheer confidence of the opening months of the season, while United have come to the boil since February, coasting to the Premier League title. The Red Devils have home advantage, too, but Barcelona house far more match-winning players in their starting XI.
0’
Dutch, Premier League and European football bids farewell to one of its greats tonight; Edwin van der Sar. Whittling his career away at Fulham in 2004, who would have thought that seven years later the beanpole keeper would have become an integral part of Manchester United's success and be compared favourably with Peter Schmeichel? More than 800 club appearances have already brought two Champions League triumphs for Van der Sar and a third tonight would be the ultimate conclusion to a magnificent career.
0’
Puyol's absence really could be key tonight – Rooney and Hernandez will certainly fancy their chances against Mascherano and Pique. But the game will most likely be won in midfield, where Carrick and Giggs must cut off the supply line to Messi. As for the Argentine maestro, Fabio and Park will double-up to try and subdue the world's greatest footballer.
0’
These two have proven themselves to be the outstanding clubs in Europe during the past four seasons. They met at the semi final stage in 2007-08, when a Paul Scholes screamer was the only goal in 180 minutes before United went on to lift the trophy in Moscow. A year later they squared off in the final in Rome, when United didn't really turn up and a dominant Barcelona coasted home 2-0 with goals from Samuel Eto'o and Lionel Messi. Last year tight defeats to Bayern Munich and Inter Milan prevented them from clashing in a second consecutive final, but in 2011 they've looked destined to meet since the draw for the last-eight stage onwards was made.
0’
This place may have changed a bit, for better or worse, in the past few years but it still holds special memories for these clubs. Manchester United and Barcelona both won their first European Cups here, in 1968 and 1992 respectively with wins over Benfica and Sampdoria. The rather soulless new Wembley hasn't hosted too many unforgettable moments since reopening in 2007, but hopefully tonight will change all that.
0’
And there's a surprise in the Barcelona team – captain Carlos Puyol is on the bench. The Spaniard has been suffering with hamstring and knee problems of late, but was passed fit earlier this week. His absence means a fairytale selection for Eric Abidal, who had surgery on a liver tumour less than two months ago, with Javier Mascherano continuing alongside Gerard Pique in central defence. Full line up: Valdes; Alves, Mascherano, Pique, Abidal; Busquets, Xavi, Iniesta; Pedro, Villa, Messi. Subs: Oier, Puyol, Bojan, Keita, Afellay, Adriano Correia, Thiago.
0’
The biggest surprise on the Manchester United team sheet is the absence of Dimitar Berbatov. The Bulgarian striker may be injured, but either way Michael Owen wins a spot on the bench. Sir Alex Ferguson elects to go for Fabio instead of brother Rafael at right back, while Antonio Valencia is preferred to Nani. Ryan Giggs, whose private life was turned upside last week, partners Michael Carrick in midfield and Ji-Sung Park is on the left. Full line up: Van der Sar; Fabio, Vidic, Ferdinand, Evra; Valencia, Carrick, Giggs, Park; Hernandez, Rooney. Subs: Kuszczak, Smalling, Fletcher, Scholes, Anderson, Nani, Owen.
0’
Viktor Kassai becomes the youngest ever referee of a Champions League final tonight. The 35-year-old Hungarian is no novice, though - he has been a Champions League regular for the past few seasons and took charge of last summer's World Cup semi final between Spain and Germany. If Barcelona repeat the histrionics of their win over Real Madrid in the semi finals, Kassai may have a difficult evening ahead.
0’
Refreshingly, Pep Guardiola also has a fully-fit squad to choose from, meaning that none of the world's top players will miss the final through injury and/or suspension. Carlos Puyol and Eric Abidal declared their fitness earlier this week and Puyol is expected to start at left back, with Javier Mascherano continuing at centre half after his impressive recent form. With Victor Valdes, Gerad Pique and Dani Alves filling the other defensive positions the rest of the Barca team picks itself. Sergio Busquets, Xavi and Andres Iniesta will make up the midfield behind David Villa, Pedro and Lionel Messi.
0’
Sir Alex Ferguson has no injury worries ahead of his fourth Champions League final, but that just makes his selection all the more difficult. Javier Hernandez is expected to partner Wayne Rooney up front and if that's the case then eight first-team regulars are vying for four midfield spots. Fergie must choose between Paul Scholes, Michael Carrick, Ji-Sung Park, Nani, Anderson, Antonio Valencia, Ryan Giggs and Darren Fletcher. The latter pair in particular are sweating on their places, with Giggs enduring a traumatic week for off-the-field reasons and Fletcher having only started one game since March. Finally in defence, with Vidic, Ferdinand and Patrice Evra all certain starters, the right back position is the only unclear slot, with John O'Shea and twins Rafael and Fabio da Silva competing to start.
0’
They're calling it the final every neutral wanted, and it's easy to see why. The artisans of Barcelona take on the indestructibles of Manchester United at Wembley for the prize of the best club side in Europe. A cast of Lionel Messi, Wayne Rooney, David Villa, Nemanja Vidic, Andres Iniesta, Javier Hernandez, Xavi and Edwin van Der Sar, the latter in his last ever professional appearances. And it's all happening at Wembley – the home of football.
